Why Choose Private Yoga Therapy?
If you are a beginner, private yoga therapy can help you establish a firm foundation in yoga before you start attending group classes.
If you are undergoing physical therapy or seeking to relieve chronic pain, private yoga therapy will complement and support your current program of treatment.
If you want to reduce stress and increase your emotional wellbeing, private yoga therapy can help.
If you are currently a yoga practitioner, private yoga therapy can help you deepen your practice.
All yoga is therapeutic. However, yoga therapy makes use of yoga practices while focusing on the health and wellbeing of the individual at all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. In yoga therapy, postures and practices are customized to each person’s ability and comfort.
What Is A Private Yoga Therapy Session Like?
Private yoga therapy sessions with Carol are typically 60-90 minutes in length. Based your needs, private yoga therapy sessions may include a variety of breathing techniques, yoga postures and other movements, awareness exercises, guided imagery, deep relaxation, and meditation practices.
Because each session is dedicated entirely to you, Carol has time to listen carefully to your wants and needs, make physical assessments, and then address those wants, needs, strengths and weaknesses in subsequent sessions.
An important difference between a group yoga class and a private yoga therapy session is the amount of time Carol can spend on assessing your current abilities and desires and providing personalized feedback. After the initial session, you will receive an individualized, written plan to follow at home.

“I never thought that I could do yoga. It seemed impossible and after taking a not so gentle yoga class at a local gym I decided that it was not for me. Carol spoke to me about trying a private class… I was so nervous but took her up on the offer. That day, my life changed forever. I not only completed a 90 minute gentle yoga class but I felt amazing. I slept so well that night. Felt energized and a sense of calm happiness all day. Carol took the time to plan each class catering to my needs. I learned stress reducing techniques that I used daily. I thoroughly enjoy the one to one class and look forward to continuing with my yoga sessions.”
“In as much as proper body movement for my specific conditions has been a major benefit for me, Carol has also taught me the importance of meditation. I do look forward to ending each session with ten or more minutes of meditation which is something I had never done before. It is a lovely way to release tension that one may not realize exists and to see things in such a positive light.”
