Online private lessons are a fun and effective approach to learning about your best way of being in the world.
Together, we will take a problem-solving approach to your challenges. Gently, your relationship with your mind-body self will change, as I coach you through practices that will help you replace habits of stress, tension or anxiety with the skills of self-regulating, centering and ease of movement.
Here are some ways I can help you—
- In your office space, (or kitchen table) I can help you explore how you work at your computer or laptop with balance and comfort.
- In your kitchen, I can show you how to chop vegetables and wash dishes with ease and efficiency.
- With your instrument, I can help you practice with both relaxation and alertness, ease and liveliness.
- On your meditation cushion, I can help you sit upright, in balance and in comfort.
- Sitting while on Zoom meetings? I can help you with presence, so that you can use your face, eyes and voice with ease and sustainability.
During your first online session, we will:
- Discuss what brings you — pain, stress, skill enhancement, well-being
