About

For many the doorway into yoga is through asana, the practice of physical posture.  As we move our bodies through various poses we learn to observe our movement, with interest and without judgement - noticing what we feel, where we feel it, how we breathe with our movement and how that affects us. This attitude of gentle observation, developing moment by moment awareness, we can then take off the mat and bring into our daily lives, enabling us to act consciously rather than react, and become more present and receptive to life.  The more we practice, the more we find ourselves able to connect with a stillness beneath the demands of routines and responsibilities, providing a respite and state of relaxation where it wasn't before. Regular practice of yoga also has many physical, physiological and psychological benefits (read more) which may include improved flexibility, strength and posture, complemented by increased vitality and mental clarity.

Private Sessions

A one-to-one session can be a wonderful opportunity for a confidence building introduction to yoga or a chance to deepen one's existing practice. Sessions are tailored to the unique requirements of the student and are held in Karen's beautiful home studio, at the water's edge on the Isle of Seil.

Karen aims to meet each student where they are in their practice and their body, incorporating the principles she explored in The Art of Teaching Yoga 1-2-1.  In this way teacher and student work together, often through very subtle movement to find release and balance in the body, developing a sense of inner sensitivity which can provide release from unhelpful holding patterns that may be causing imbalance and even pain.   

The studio can accommodate up to 2 students plus the teacher - a perfect chance to practice with a friend or partner.

 

£25 for a 60 minute session; £38 for a 90 minute session

Contact Karen for further information or to make a booking

"One-to-one yoga lessons with Karen have been a huge help for my back problems.  I leave every session feeling an inch taller and walking on air, but also, more importantly, having learnt things that I can carry forward into daily life to help maintain the improvement."  Christine​
