Learn Yoga At Home
Learn Yoga At Home
If you are new to yoga, consider yourself a beginner, and want to learn yoga at home, WELCOME!
Beginners are my favorite to teach and I have learned so much from my beginner students over the years.
The yoga I teach is for everyone – there is no pretense – and for any age, size and injury level.
One of the things the pandemic taught us is that much can be accomplished from the comfort and safety of your own home.
I continue to see all my clients virtually and have been pleased at how well this format works.
Yoga was historically taught 1:1, lessons transmitted from teacher to student, and learning yoga virtually at home continues this tradition.
Before we start working together, I like to know what your yoga goals are, your general health history and a bit about your lifestyle (work habits, sleep habits, eating habits).
This is all gathered so I can design a customized program for you, around what you naturally enjoy.
Some of my clients have been practicing with me since I began teaching – they went from total Beginners to Advanced Practitioners – and some have even developed robust home practices that travel with them when they leave home.
Benefits of Learning Yoga at Home
Besides the familiarity and privacy of being at home, the best part is not having to drive home after a relaxing practice. I teach my clients how to build a ‘human nest’ for the final pose (Savasana) and students are free to rest longer in this pose after the lesson ends.
Typically yoga studios need turnaround for cleaning so as soon as class is over, students are ushered out. Not so in Yoga At Home!
What You Can Expect Learning Yoga At Home
75 minutes Private Instruction*
*This can be 100% demo’d (where I do all the movement with you), 100% spoken (where I coach you through the movement) or a combination of both.
I have used all three teaching modalities with my clients.
Option to ask questions after class or via text or email – I am always available to my clients.
Supplemental home program, if requested.
Additional curriculum can be added: meditation, breathwork, Tai Chi, light physical therapy exercises (I am not a certified Physical Therapist), myofascial release techniques, energy medicine techniques.
**More about my background and life here
Here is a recent testimonial from a client who began with in person yoga instruction and now does virtual yoga at home.
“I have been working with Catherine for about six years now. I was a member of a yoga studio and really enjoyed it, but I didn’t truly understand yoga until I met Catherine. She intuitively senses what our bodies need, and her attention to form and detail is unrivalled. It’s a workout, but it’s also a meditation – a flowing meditation unlike anything I’ve experienced elsewhere.
For years, Catherine would come to our home once per week for an intimate session. Our parents would join us, and it became a weekly event we all looked forward to. We rarely missed a session, and our physical and mental health improved dramatically.
One the pandemic hit we thought our tradition was on hold. We were so accustomed to in-person sessions, it didn’t even occur to us that virtual sessions could be a possibility.
We decided to give it a try, and we never went back.
Once per week, Catherine joins us in our living room over Zoom. She takes us through our practice with the same attention and skill she does in person. But WOW is it so easy and convenient! Even though the pandemic is behind us, we now prefer her virtual sessions.
Catherine always says our practice should serve us, not the other way around. It’s with Catherine that I’ve learned how to truly practice yoga.”
