Common goals of private instruction
Private clients typically have one of 3 goals:
- Home Practice Development: Practicing at home is a useful and a cost effective supplement to group classes at a studio. Students frequently want to practice yoga more often than they can come to group classes. A home practice consultation includes evaluation of your personal goals, strategizing how to make your practice consistent, and a written practice plan. Maggie guides you through the practice once so you leave familiar with how to practice on your own safely and effectively. Home practice consultations are most effective when done in conjunction with group yoga classes. There is a powerful synergistic energy of participating in group yoga classes. 🙂
- Personalized Yoga Coaching: Group class students frequently benefit from personalized help to deepen their yoga practice. Coaching sessions include feedback on how to properly perform yoga postures and adaptations for the client’s individual goals and body. Students who have attended coaching sessions report that the sessions help them make huge strides in improving their yoga practice.
- Special Needs Instruction: Some individuals have needs that are not met by group classes. Maggie works one on one with students who have a variety of needs. Examples of client issues include: Stress management, sports training, managing menopausal symptoms, arthritis, infertility, cancer recovery, Cerebral Palsy, and Multiple Sclerosis. Maggie also works with individuals with neck, back, and other acute and chronic physical injuries.Special needs instruction is best when done in a series of at least 4 sessions. Many students have a workable plan after 4 sessions. Others may prefer to continue working one on one with Maggie.
