-Did you know the term Guru translates to "light shiner", one who shines a light helping a student to find and see their path?
Yoga Asana traditionally was taught 1:1, Guru to disciple. This allowed the teacher to closely follow the progress of the student as well as be there to answer questions both of physical as well as a philosophical nature. In today's hustle and bustle it's undeniable the convenience of group Yoga classes, however also undeniable is the benefit of the relationship between student and teacher developed within a 1:1 practice.
Often in a group class it's difficult to tackle these questions or reflections on a much deeper level and to take a longer pause. During a private session we work together on whatever it is you seek. Be it gaining strength, flexibility, healing, space to question and reflect or to advventure into the depths of Asana or the physical postures.
The way yoga is touted and taught today, the main focus undebiabley is on the phsyical element of the Yoga practice as a whole. That's ok, as asana exists to help the student connect with their bodies, feel their breath and exlpore movement and it's effects. It's through this particular approach Yoga can bloom for many promoting change and understanding. A tapping into internal wisdom.
Combining traditional elements with modern day functional movement approaches to not only help gain a greater understanding of the mind body connection but also the importance of maintaining full range of motion, healthy joint capsules and functional movement patterns as we age, these 1:1 sessions can prove to be quiet transformational.
