Students opt for individual tuition for a variety of reasons; a yoga student may wish to deepen their practice with their own home practice plan, or it may be that there is a health consideration which would make individual tuition, in the form of yoga therapy, more appropriate either for an existing yoga practitioner or someone completely new to yoga.  Using modifications appropriate to the individual student, I can adapt the various methods of practice, according to their ‘starting place.

How it works:

Initial consultation/practice with a student –  an hour and a quarter.  This allows the opportunity to take a history and assess movement/limitations etc and establish what the student hopes to achieve from their practice.

I design (and work through with the student) an individual practice plan – the length being determined by how long the student feels they can allocate to their practice, probably about 20 minutes to half an hour, ideally on a daily basis or at least several times a week  for the practice to be effective.
I then go through this practice sheet with the student ensuring that they feel confident to practice at home on their own.
Review (an hour) is usually after a few weeks, initially and then every 6 weeks, but this varies, depending on the individual student’s need and their availability.  The important thing is for the student to make time to establish a practice routine which works for them. Some students prefer to meet me more frequently, particularly if they do not also attend group classes.
The fee is £40 for the initial hour and a quarter session.  I then ask people to book and commit to 3 further sessions (1 hour) at a reduced cost of £100 – these must be taken where possible within a 3 month period.  This helps to establish a regular practice habit.  Subsequent sessions can be booked in blocks of 3 at the reduced rate or as required at £40 per session.
I use a practice room at the Open Door Clinic, Church Twitten, Lewes BN7 2LU  (formerly Thebes Gallery, behind Lewes House off School Hill).  Please book through me, not the clinic.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to  arrange an initial session.  I am a registered member of the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council)
