One to One yoga
Some people may feel they would like to receive more focused attention and a session tailored to their preferences, needs and limitations. For some people. One to one sessions can be very helpful for deepening their practice. As I understand Yoga a journey, treating oneself to 1-2-1 sessions can really accelerate the pace on that path!
Testimonials from students
“I just want to say before I get too far into work, thank you for taking away all my pain today!!! I have a lot of aches and pains these days, maybe sitting too long at my desk, I don’t know however today they are all gone. It feels like a coiled spring has been released and is free!!!!
Thank you so much for helping me.”
“I always enjoy Renate’s ‘Step into Yoga’ classes and afterwards I feel both exercised and relaxed. Her classes of Hatha Yoga are fun, Renate is a fun, bubbly person. The exercises and stretches help to keep me fit and flexible, and are enjoyable too, although, more often than not, a challenge to achieve the ultimate stance! I have learnt how to breath properly, something that I was not very good at before, despite being keen on sports all my life, too often I would hold my breath! I am now more conscious of, and can control my breathing and feel fitter too.”
“Gentle yet joyful, simple yet remarkable. Renate is a wonderful teacher and her classes are fantastic. Highly recommended!”
Frequently asked questions
What should I wear to the yoga class?
It is best to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes for the baby and yourself – nothing that restricts your movement or your breathing.
Yoga is practiced in bare feet.
You might like to bring socks and jumper/cardigan for extra warmth during the relaxation.
Do I need to have my own yoga mat?
If you have your own mat and you’d prefer to use it then you are welcome to do so. Proper yoga mats are much better than the general aerobic type that are liable to slip.
Mats are available to borrow and to buy at class.
For the relaxation you might find a small pillow useful.
Should I eat before coming to class?
Wherever possible please try not to eat a large meal for a few hours before you come to class – it is not terribly comfortable to have a full stomach while practicing.
Please bring water if you need it.
Do I need any previous yoga experience?
Yoga is not competitive!
It does not matter if you haven’t practiced before – everybody has his or her individual strengths and weaknesses to work with.
You will notice how your strength and flexibility increases after just a few sessions.
It is very important to listen to your body to only do what you feel you are capable of, and make sure to rest if you feel you need to.
Arrive at least 10 minutes before the class starts
Allow additional time if it is your first class
Turn off all electronic devices
This means anything that rings, dings or buzzes
Advise instructor of any injuries or health issues
If you have any injuries/medical conditions please make sure that I know before class and include relevant details on the sign-in sheet in the first class of the course.
