The aim of individual tuition is to reflect the fundamentals of Krishnamacharya’s teaching, namely, transmission occurs through the direct experience of the teacher with the student’s personal Yoga practice and study through one to one meetings.
Yoga Yatta – A chance to chat around your questions on Yoga or Chanting
As well as receiving requests for more information on what learning Yoga or Chant within one to one meetings entails, I am receiving an increasing number of emails from around the globe with questions and requests for clarification around Yoga practice, theory and philosophy. Within both areas I also feel that although a living, breathing contact and dialogue is much more preferable, we live increasingly in an age where direct face to face, albeit via screen and speaker, contact is possible through media such as Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, Zoom, Teams, Signal, Telegram, WebEx, etc.
I talk more fluently than I type, plus I also feel direct contact and dialogue is much more preferable to a keyboard based to’ing and fro’ing of views, opinions or questions. Hence, I am proposing an offering of time and space, within either a meeting at my home studio, or using modern media to engage in a direct dialogue with your questions on one to one lessons or requests for clarification around your questions on Yoga.
The meetings with regard to working one to one will be up to 30′. Regarding more general Yoga questions I am offering to schedule sessions of around 20′ each. These meetings either at my home or online will be, diary permitting, at a time that we can mutually negotiate considering our schedules and, if relevant, time zone differences. All options will be one-off sessions and they will be completely free, with no agenda that some sort of tuition is being proposed. In fact, even if a student contacts me wanting to explore options for study then I would suggest this route anyway as I feel the first priority is to explore mutual expectations.
In the case of tuition, should the outcome be that you are interested in commencing one to one lessons or there is an interest in pursuing online studies, then a more formal arrangement for future meetings along with a fee paying setup can be negotiated. Either way, these one-off meetings are offered completely free of any future obligation and are merely a means to yatter around Yoga and a chance for me to understand your query better in order to respond more clearly.
The Saṃskṛta word Yatta means to be attended to, guided; engaged in, intent upon, prepared for, ready to. Hence Yoga Yatta is offered in that spirit of engaging in meeting and attending to your questions and offering, as an experienced guide, what I can from my long studies with my teacher. If you are interested then please do use the contact page or email me and from there we can set up a meeting, either personally or online, to yatter more.
Thank you for your interest.
