Why choose a private or semi-private class?

 

Do you have a busy schedule and time is an issue for you?

Private yoga sessions allow you the freedom to choose the place and the time that best suits you to practice. There are no issues fitting into your schedule and no need to stress out about getting to a class on time. You can choose to practice at home or at one of our studio spaces.

 

Are you a new student and unsure of yoga movement patterns and terminology?  

Private yoga sessions with me will ensure that you are taught the basic alignment of each Asana (pose) correctly so that you build your practice from a safe and strong foundation. 

 

Are you recovering from an injury and need specific guidance into and out of poses?

I will tailor the session to suit your needs and create a practice that is mindful of the injury and builds strength and flexibility to your whole body. 

 

Are you fearful of group classes and feel intimidated in group settings?

Private sessions, or semi-private with a partner or friends, will ensure that you feel safe and confident to practice mindfully.

 

Practising privately ensures that

ALL of your needs and goals are met.

After hernia surgery that left me with abdominal pain due to postoperative scarring, plus lower back pain after a long period of postoperative immobility, I turned to Beth for some one-on-one yoga sessions to get me moving again and to address my lower back issues.

Having attended Beth’s group yoga classes before, there was no doubt in my mind that she was the best teacher to work with. Her focus on correct movement sets her lessons apart from others I have attended. Beth’s students learn how to precisely control their practice so they do not get injured. 

In our private sessions, Beth has applied this attention to detail to help me achieve movement and healing in my postoperative scar tissue. We have stepped up the intensity of the practice in a gradual fashion so that I do not experience any pain in my abdominal muscles. She has adapted poses and given me new techniques to release my lower back. I have become increasingly pain free and more mobile each week, ticking off mini milestones in my daily life. Simple things like being able to sit in a chair pain free are a huge step forward.

I highly recommend Beth as a yoga teacher for everyone, injured or not. But if you have specific problems to address, Beth is definitely the one. She can be your guide on the path to healing, mobility, and strength.

As a lapsed and avid Yogi, I wanted a safe and protected environment to get back onto the mat after a series of injuries.  When I read Beth's approach on her webpage, I was sold. 

 

I have been doing weekly private classes with Beth since February 2021 and have never looked back.  Beth is amazing; she seems to always know exactly what my body and mind need, and adjusts her sessions accordingly. 

 

Practicing yoga with Beth is one of my weekly highlights and I walk out of every class taller and calmer, regardless of what life throws at me, especially during this never-ending pandemic. 

 

I consider myself blessed to have such an inspiring teacher as Beth, and my practice has grown stronger every session.  I look forward to continuing to grow my yoga practice with her. 

 

This year, I gifted Beth private classes to myself, and I can only encourage you to do the same. It's an investment that keeps giving back.

As I write this, I have had only two private sessions with Beth, and as a frequent long-term user of 'traditional talk therapy', I was overwhelmingly surprised at how I felt after just 2 sessions. 

 

I decided to engage in yoga to create a space where I could teach myself to feel calm, present within my body, and feel less consumed by my thoughts. I had heard wonderful things that yoga could do, not just for the body, but for the combination of body, mind and soul.

 

I have previously struggled when engaging in meditations or yoga classes which is why I opted for private classes. My experience so far has utterly shocked my body and brain with what Beth has helped me achieve in such a short time. I thought it was close to impossible! 

 

After my first session I felt so relieved, calm, and nourished knowing it was possible for my body to achieve the peace I had been looking for. I

 

have suffered with severe anxiety most of my adult life. Beth made me feel safe, welcome, understood and almost like 'at home'.

 

Reflecting on the two sessions, I can't help but be excited for this journey as she has not only helped me settle my mind, and practice ways to be present within my body, but also helped with neck and shoulder tension from a horrible posture.

 

Beth is truly amazing at what she does. You can see this is what she was born to do, and how passionate she is.

When Beth and I found each other, I was barely able to get up and down from the floor!

 

In a few short months of consistent classes my whole world has changed. We have been practising Yin and slow Yang movements and I have noticed an increase in my flexibility by at least 60%.

 

When we started I was fearful that I could not hold the positions, but now I want to stay in each position for longer and am disappointed when it's time to come out of a pose! 

 

The yoga practise has enabled me to connect my mind, body and breath and I am coping with life and its stresses with far more grace and ease.

 

Thank you Beth -  I love our Yoga !
