“… but it was the saxophone soloing that challenged credulity, it’s length and perhaps its unwillingness to tell a traditional story… If there’s one thing the facile critic needs to do his job, it is some verbal personality from the bandstand, some words to transcribe into the review – anything to make a thoroughly musical endeavor more literary or conversational. Coltrane would not provide it.”

Coltrane - The Story of a Sound

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.
