Where are the sessions? Yoga with an emphasis on Mental Health can be offered for a client base for a medical office in a group setting or individually in the client’s home/outdoors if weather permits.
How much are the sessions? Rates will depend on location. We will discuss rates for service at the time of your consult. Ask about my Intro Offers! Be sure to fill out my contact form here.
Do the employees attending need yoga mats? Yes, if we are teaching a standing series having yoga mat is ideal. Depending on the size of the group mats may be provided.
What do employees wear to do yoga? It is suggested they wear comfortable clothing they can easily bend, move and stretch in.
How long (and often) are classes? Class time is 60 minutes. They can be held morning, lunchtime or after work, once or twice a week. In order to receive the full benefits, I recommend holding a series (6-8 weekes) or implementing a class that is offered once a week.
How much is office yoga? As an employee benefit, your company can opt to pay 100% for the yoga classes or partially subsidize them. Another option is the employees attending pay PureHeartYogi instead. The rate per class depends on your office location.
How many employees can attend the yoga class? Your space determines the limit. The rate per yoga class is the same regardless of the number of attendees.
Do you teach desk yoga? Yes! We realize many people have limited time. I do offer 30-minute desk yoga – aka chair yoga – that can be held in a conference room setting. I offer practical yoga techniques, tips and breathing exercises your employees can learn to use while sitting at their desks.
Do you teach meditation classes? Yes! I also can teach a 30 minute meditation class or when we discuss structure of classes meditation can be an integral part of the class.
Is private yoga expensive? Rates are comparable to what Napa, Sonoma area yoga studios charge for private yoga instruction – the difference is you don’t have to travel to a studio. Rates depend on your home or office location.
How much space do I need in my house/office? Push aside your living room chair and coffee table and you probably have enough space to unroll a yoga mat. We will make it work, if weather permits we can also go outdoors!
How long is a private yoga class? Most private yoga sessions are 60 minutes however, can be 75 minutes if requested.
How is Yoga for Mental Health different from the other services? This service should be referral based by an attending mental health therapist, physician, chiropractor, massage therapist, etc. The client needs will be discussed at the time of the initial phone consult.
If the individual allows I can discuss needs provided from the referral source (attending mental health therapist, physician, chiropractor, massage therapist, etc), this allows me to better understand current concerns and stressors. Specific goals related to symptoms, physical limitations and stressors will be discussed in order to create a treatment plan best suited for you.
How often do we meet? I highly suggest you commit to at least one private yoga session a week for a minimum of 5 weeks. The more you do it, the more benefit you’ll get out of it. Ask about my introductory offers!
