"Alison is the best yoga coach I have ever had, and it’s always a pleasure for me to see her.  I look forward having her come and work with me, and cannot think of a better person for yoga.  I have many physical problems, and Alison always makes me feel better.  One can tell how much she enjoys her profession and she is lucky to be doing exactly what she loves.  I have already recommended her to my friends who are searching for the perfect yoga teacher. She is that!"

- Miki M, Art Historian  

"I recently started a class at work in yoga.  Being new to this form of exercise and stretching, I sought out one-on-one lessons with an instructor who could bring quality and control to my movements. This instructor is Alison.  Being pre-diabetic, circulation, flexibility, and strength are important to my overall health and ability to do those things that I enjoy doing.  Alison brings you into a comfortable and low pressure space where she customizes each lesson to how you're feeling at that moment.  Individualized attention has honed my skills and improved my overall peace and composure.  I heartily recommend seeing her for her individual attention and care."

- David S, Project Manager  

So Why Private Yoga?

  

by Alison Kate

 

When I work one-on-one with clients, I am continuously humbled, touched, and incredibly pleased by the results, quick progress, and connection that are gained even within the first few sessions.  The key is the customization that private yoga allows for.  As I sense someone’s energy, see their body moving, and incorporate their reason for coming to yoga, a unique expression unfolds.  The personalized practice is healing and brings clients’ back to a state of balance and harmony.

 

I’ve compiled a list of what students tell me are the best parts of individual yoga sessions. 

As you read, what aspects jump out at you?  What parts sounds like they would just be heavenly? 

 

Things that resonate with us are a call from the inside – from the body, mind, and soul.  What can we pay attention to today that allows us to take better care, to realign, to come back to vibrant wellness and energized happiness?

And last but not least, we learn CONSCIOUS BREATHING. 

Breathing supports every single function in our body, as well as our mind, the way we handle situations, and approach community and societal issues.  It’s the most important practice you can cultivate.  We often think we are not in control of our breath, but in fact we are.  And the more we practice, the more we develop awareness, gain control, and experience immense support.  Yoga poses are just weird shapes and exercise, but with breath, yoga is yoga.  Yoga is the union of movement and breath, and learning the practice on the mat allows us to then apply it in every situation in life.

Feel the POWER, RICHNESS, and MAGIC yoga has to offer? 

Yes, yes, and yes! 

Jump onto a mat at home.  Schedule a session.  Go to class.  Or just practice conscious breathing.

Wishing you lots of peace, healing, and happiness.
