Since everyone’s body is different, it is best to work on and develop one’s own individual practice, including the poses and adaptations that would be most beneficial for each person. With that in mind, I recommend and offer individual sessions, either at my Manhattan location or at a place of your choosing.
The duration of individual sessions varies depending on the student but is usually one hour. A typical session starts with a few minutes of sitting, slowing down the breath and focusing on our bodies. We then explore yoga asana (poses and movement) until the last 10-20 minutes, using repetitive movements and slow deep breathing, learning to control the breath and deepen the ability to relax while stretching and strengthening our bodies. At the end of the session, guided deep relaxation (savasana) and controlled breathing (pranayama) will bring us into a space of quiet stillness.
In-person private sessions are available at $100 per hour; there may be an additional travel fee. Discounted rates are available for 4 or more sessions paid in advance: $360 for 4 sessions with no expiration date, or $320 for 4 sessions to be used within 2 months. (The 2 months may be extended if holidays or instructor absences intervene).
[During the Covid pandemic, I am offering online sessions at $80 per hour; $280 for 4 sessions paid in advance; $270 for 4 sessions to be used within 2 months.]
Cancellation and Expiration Policy
If you purchase the two-month package and don’t use the 4 sessions within the two months, I will offer you a credit towards future sessions equal to the remainder after subtracting the number of sessions used at the drop-in rate (for example, if you attend 2 sessions, you would be offered a credit of $320 – (2 x $100) = $120). There are no refunds.
You may cancel up to 24 hours before a scheduled session without penalty – the session can be rescheduled. If you cancel within 24 hours, no rescheduling will be possible.
