About Your Lesson
No matter what your reasons for scheduling a personalized Yoga session, Michelle will begin with an assessment of how you are feeling at that moment, both physically and mentally. This interview is also an opportunity for you to express your goals and desires. Based on her assessment, Michelle determines which asanas, breathing practices and meditation techniques to lead you through.
A good personalized Yoga session depends on uninhibited communication between the student and teacher. You will find that Michelle frequently asks what you are experiencing throughout the class. These questions serve a dual purpose. Not only will the answers help to determine what should come next, but they serve to remind you to always be listening to and obeying your body’s needs. Yoga can be hard work both physically and mentally. Therefore, patience and sensitivity set the pace for progress.
At Michelle’s home studio in Brooklyn, you can also opt for a personalized Unnata Aerial Yoga session. Just like traditional Yoga, the Unnata method can meet you where you are, no matter what your level of fitness or Yogic experience. In an Unnata class, you’ll explore new and traditional Yoga asanas (yogic postures) with your body weight partially or fully supported by a soft, fabric Aerial hammock.
