WHAT IS PRIVATE YOGA + FITNESS?
Integrating yoga into your regular workout program is beneficial on many levels. It can help prevent injury, relax muscles, + keep you flexible.
I’ve heard many potential students, including myself, who have been skeptical, hesitant + sometimes even fearful of joining a group yoga class.
Many group yoga + fitness classes offered at gyms + studios tend to be challenging + more skill oriented, which can make a beginner shy away from ever trying either yoga or fitness at all.
Allow me to show you how taking a few private sessions with me will be well worth the investment.
I help people dig deeper into their into their bodies so they can heal from the inside out while developing sustainable fitness practices, on + off the mat.
A private session IS NOT a yoga class for one student. It is an entirely different entity with its own structure + rules. It's Personal Training meets Yoga Class.
But what does that mean exactly?
The differences show up on multiple levels:
1. GOAL SETTING - How much attention is paid to student’s goals. What would you like to get out of your practice? In a private session student’s goals set the stage for the entire practice.
2. CHOICE OF PRACTICE - How much attention is paid to an individual student’s needs, wants + likes. In a yoga class, the student’s needs, wants + likes are generalized, while in a private session they are very specific, unique to that student. In both we need to know what these are + design the practice accordingly.
3. TEACHER-STUDENT EXCHANGE - How the practice gets adapted based on the student’s feedback. In private sessions both visual + verbal feedback should be open + continuous, from both Teacher + Student. Any element of the practice can be adapted, based on the student’s response to the practice.
4. HOME PRACTICE - How much student gets to practice on her own. I am here to empower the student, show them that change is possible + is a result of her own actions. That includes being mindful of how they uses their body + mind in the course of the day (“yoga off the mat”) as well as appropriate yoga practice (“yoga on the mat”).
5. VARIETY - How much the practice changes from session to session. My goal is to encourage a home practice, therefore I need to make sure that my student is comfortable with doing the practice on their own. In yoga HOW you do things is just as important as WHAT you do.
6. LENGTH - How long the practice is. Private yoga sessions are usually 75-90 minutes long, with some of the time spent on the student’s feedback + explanations about the specifics of the practice.

Frequently Asked Questions
OK. SO I AM READY TO TAKE MY 1ST CLASS, WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Please arrive about 10-15 minutes before class time. Upon entering, you’ll be greeted asked to fill out an intake package. You can sign in and finish paying for your session there. You’ll be shown where to leave your personal items, reminded to turn off your cell phone, and directed where you can set up. Arriving early will also give you time to ask the teacher any questions you might have, and tell her about any injuries or physical conditions she should know about or if anything has changed over the week. It is imperative I know if you are pregnant or are dealing with an acute injury also.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I suggest comfortable, stretchy clothing that is not too loose or it will get in your way, and make it difficult for the instructor to check your alignment. Most women wear a tank or tee with leggings and men wear a tee with shorts. Do plan to practice in bare feet, remove jewelry, and absolutely no watches in the studio. We also ask you refrain from wearing scented lotions and perfumes in respect for those who have sensitivities or allergies to fragrances.
IS YOGA A RELIGION?
Yoga is a philosophy, not a religion, though it does have a spiritual component. You do not need to be religious to practice. It has been practiced by individuals of widely differing beliefs and any and all people are welcome at Flux Fit Soul. At the heart is the openness to see we have not yet tapped into our highest potential as human beings. Yoga seeks to put us in touch with our innermost nature—that which or who we truly are.
WHEN SHOULD I EAT, AND DO I NEED WATER?
Plan to practice on an empty stomach. If you need a snack, eat a piece of fruit or something light before class. One of the benefits of yoga is its detoxification of the body. Drinking lots of water will help flush the toxins out of your system, so do hydrate well both before and after class. As you don’t want to extinguish all the internal heat you are trying to build during class, if you need to drink while practicing, take small sips. Drink up when you’re done!
