Yoga For Your Team

The first session is $75 and pricing there after depends on frequency and number of students. This is a great cost savings and a way to try this out for your group.
Programs are outlined with the goals of the group in mind. Example programs developed have been yoga for Crossfit gyms, youth or adult sports teams, company wellness and/or training programs, and drug rehabilitation programs. Example areas of focus include addressing common injuries/ailments in sports, introduction to mindfulness and meditation, and/or practices suited for emotional stability and healing.
A great option for those who might not feel comfortable starting in a class environment. Private sessions can introduce you to basic yoga poses and how to use yoga props in a one on one setting. Similarly, this is a good option for those with acute or chronic injuries, ailments, or disease to learn what yoga sequences are suited for those conditions. All props and equipment are provided as well as a free 30 minute consult prior to the session. Private sessions for two are also available.
