“Ordinarily, if an average man comes face to face with the nagual the shock would be so great that he would die. The goal of a warrior’s training is not to teach him to hex or to charm, but to prepare his tonal not to crap out ... You call it explaining. I call it a sterile and boring insistence of the tonal to have everything under it’s control. Whenever it doesn’t succeed, there is a moment of bafflement and then the tonal opens itself to death. What a prick! It would rather kill itself than relinquish control. And yet there is very little we can do to change that condition.”

Yoga 1 on 1

In my first years practicing yoga I attended weekly group-classes. Soon after I met my teacher I began studying one-on-one, practicing on a daily basis and left the weekly classes behind. 1 on 1 is required is you want to go deeper with Yoga, it’s also the way Yoga was originally taught.

1 on 1 is also my preferred setting to teach – it enables me to become familiar with you, to offer teachings that are best suited and relevant for you, to see over a period of time how your practice develops and to respond to your unique and ever-changing life circumstances.

I feel that 1 on 1 is most effective when a teacher and student are together – in the same physical space. Yet a Yoga teacher is not always available. So I decided to see what I can do remotely – through the use of technology – 1 on 1 sessions using live communication tools (such as Skype)  in which video and audio can be utilized. This process may support your search for a Yoga teacher near you.

Please keep in mind that 1 on 1 sessions are just the tip of the iceberg:

  • Change is a slow and gradual process. If you start with high expectations you are setting yourself up for disappointment. If you start with a sober and healthy curiosity you may be surprised by what you discover.
  • I can  formulate a practice that is relevant for you in your life-setting – but its in your hands to transform that into a living and kicking practice. Sometimes this flows smoothly, other times it takes discipline. It is always in your hands.
  • Everything you know is a result of practice, a practice you have been executing from the moment you were born – you’ve been practicing a lot. Yoga is not magic, it is a systemic practice – it accumulates and builds until it gains a critical mass that sheds light on your journey through life.
