"Truth, transparency & trust."
The practice of Ashtanga Yoga is a perfect match for sessions in privacy. A practitioner develops an own personal practice, which can be adjusted to time, space and circumstances. Once a solid foundation is established, one can practice independently and safely anytime and anywhere in the whole life. The key for a beneficial practice is to do what is possible then nothing at all.
In private sessions Stefanie allocates her time entirely to the practitioner and that specific moment we are together. We focus on what is and integrate it in the practice of the day.
Stefanie also pays attention to the tiny hidden habits, sensations and limits that may occur during the practice with the best intention helping the practitioner to elevate awareness while holding space for practitioner’s personal Yoga experience.
All reasons to begin with a Yoga practice are valuable. Baring the individual goal in mind, Stefanie supports directly and compassionately on integrating a yoga practice and helps to maintain it as we celebrate achievements and encourage to work through challenges together.
Personal goals, f.e. improving the flexibility, reducing stress or learning to relax, we define precisely and adjust them over time, so Stefanie can take those changes into account while guiding you gradually along the private practice.
RESEARCH AND REFINING
Over time the individual practice needs a new point of view. Stefanie inspires to research for new aspects on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual to refine the practice in a beneficial way.
Special health concerns or injuries Stefanie addresses specifically, so she is able to form the practice as a supportive tool within the healing process. Our network of doctors and therapists will be integrated to enhance it.
Together we view the best possibilities of a home practice and establish it gradually with Stefanie's consistent and encouraging support.
