Private Yoga in Aylesbury

As your private yoga teacher, I will meet you exactly where you are and help you figure out what you need most from the practice.

As the expert in this kind of teaching, I can take your needs, desires and goals and create a practice that is fun, nurturing and perfectly attuned for you.  I support people from all walks of life and also offer specialist classes for pregnancy, new mums and perimenopause and menopause. 

Yoga is an expansive practice so I know it can cater for your personal aspirations, body, mind and soul.

I decided to take one-to-one yoga lessons with Sarah because I just turned fifty and I was starting to notice little aches and pains now and again. I was not as flexible as before, and I knew yoga was the best exercise, but it's also a little daunting if you have never done it before. Sarah demystifies the poses and breaks them down so they become easy to do and to remember. The sessions are always great fun and I love how Sarah takes away any worry about "not doing it right". She walks you through what you can, gives you a simplified version of a pose if you need it and then gradually adds more complexity. Het method is fool proof. Oh, and her garden studio is brilliant. Doing yoga with Sarah is like giving a gift to yourself. Highly recommend her.

Private Yoga Sessions are Perfect for You If...

Joining a yoga class out of the blue can be quite a scary business.  It is easy to feel that we won’t be flexible enough or may make a fool of ourselves.  This is very normal and I promise you that most yoga teachers are really conscious about making sure you feel welcome. However, you may feel that having a few sessions on your own with a teacher who can work with your concerns and needs might be the perfect way to start your yoga journey. With private sessions you are in the perfect position to learn all of the basics of yoga in a safe, informal and super supportive way.  I have helped many clients take their first steps into the yoga world in this way and I would highly recommend it.

I understand fully that life is super busy.  Many of us are juggling work, kids and also caring for elderly family members.  It is so difficult to fit in a class which suits your available time and schedule.  Get rid of that problem entirely by booking a private yoga session.  You can schedule it to suit your timetable (for as long or as short as you want) and you have the choice of working in-person or online.  Your yoga; your life.  Make it work for you.

Yoga has an enormous capacity to heal.  This is why I love teaching yoga; it helped me to heal my own back pain and chronic sciatica.  I can help you empower yourself to do the same using therapeutic yoga tools that are tried and tested. Let’s be realistic here.  It is very unlikely that you will find a general class that will give you the support you need.  Private therapeutic yoga classes will meet you where you are and offer a fully customised yoga practice to get you back on your feet enjoying a better moving body again. Life is too short to be stopped from doing what you want to do because your body has other ideas.  

Yoga can help you lose weight, build strength and symmetry in the body.  It can be cardio if you want it to be.  It also has the added benefits of breathing practises, meditation and relaxation to help you feel happier and healthier in body, mind and spirit.

Yoga is the perfect movement practice to promote balance, mobility, and ease in the body.  Because of this is makes a natural partner to other sports including running, swimming, golf  etc.  People often report how yoga really helps to improve their performance as well as keeping them injury free.

Going to a class is a great way to practise yoga.  Sometimes though it is helpful to get some individual attention especially if you have a specific area of your yoga practice that you wish to work on.  Private yoga sessions will help you to achieve your personal goals quickly.

Pregnancy can be a challenging time for your body and emotions.  Not only is your body changing every day but you are moving towards a massive life transition.  Yoga can help with both.  It is the perfect movement practice to keep your body fit and healthy.  The breathing and mindset practices will help you get ready for this life transition with more ease.  Yoga makes a perfect buddy for labour too.  After the birth your body will not feel  your own.  You will also probably be lacking in sleep and pretty achy from all the baby chores.  Yoga again is the perfect tool to help you get your body back and help you navigate the first few months of parenthood.  The beauty about private yoga sessions for before and after the birth is that they are tailored exactly to your individual needs and goals.  This will help you make the most of your time and energy.

Private yoga can help you navigate the jumpy waters of perimenopause and menopause.  A lot of the time stress exacerbates the symptoms and yoga is amazing in providing us with tools to help us cope with stress better. Yoga is also great for maintaining muscle and bone as well as keeping us flexible and mobile. Private yoga will make sure you learn the yoga tools that will suit your personal needs as every woman is different.

Yoga has some amazing tools including breathing techniques, flow yoga, meditation and relaxation practices that go a long way to help you not only build emotional resiliance to whatever life throws your way, but also soothe anxiety and stress.  Let’s face it, stress is the number one cause of many dis-eases in the body and mind so it is important that we find ways to help ourselves dampen down the effect of stress in our lives.  Yoga will help you achieve this.

“I’d tried yoga a few times in the past and had decided it just wasn’t for me. Didn’t get it, couldn’t do it. Then I found Sarah. What a revelation. Through her patient, incredibly knowledgeable, teaching she has transformed my body - I’m so much stronger, so much more flexible, so much more aware of my posture - I used to think I can’t do this and give up and as a result feel miserable about the aches, pains and stiffness and to be honest, worry about how much worse it was going to get. Sarah is so knowledgeable about the body's muscular and skeletal structure, she watches what you’re doing, asks questions, sees what’s preventing you from doing something and helps you correct it. So now I know it isn’t that I can’t do it, my body just needs some coaxing and practice and bit by bit, I get closer to achieving it. I can do so much more now than I ever imagined when I first started. And I understand so much more now about what was causing the pain and inflexibility I used to just put up with. Sarah’s classes are something of a workout - who knew yoga could make your muscles ache so much! But they’re also incredibly relaxing, destressing and refocussing. She should be available on the NHS!”
