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.
Who are 121 Yoga Lessons for?
Learning Yoga within a one to one personal dialogue can be for anybody in any situation or life phase, though those with specific interests or needs will find the advantages of working individually more beneficial than groups. Furthermore, certain situations may be better suited to individual lessons requiring personalised practices and lifestyle advice customised and developed for home use within the privacy of a one to one meeting.
|Whether personally interested in learning Yoga as a:
Meeting individually can be beneficial with time to discuss your priorities in developing a practice appropriate to your lifestyle and short term and longer term requests. This is still seen as the most realistic way to explore Yoga practice in terms of realising our potentials according to the individual and given the many variables between our personal stories and current situation.
What are the unique advantages of learning Yoga within a 121 dialogue?
Furthermore according to T Krishnamacharya Yoga for adults needs to be taught within a one to one collaborative relationship between teacher and student, as one might work with an Osteopath, or Medical Herbalist, or Homeopath, or Physiotherapist, or Psychotherapist, or Acupuncturist, or even Personal Coach.
Personal Yoga Lessons can be offered whether for Exploration, Support or Recovery
|Thus whatever your situation one to one lessons mean Yoga can be customised to meet your needs as a:
It also provides an opportunity to adapt, refine and develop your Yoga practice and lifestyle support strategies, firstly by respecting your limitations and then exploring your potentials. Here time can be given to exploring your needs and developing personal practice and lifestyle support skills appropriate to your current situation, interests and ongoing and changing commitments.
Personalised Yoga Lessons are uniquely Customisable and Developmental according to your Needs
In modern life, Yoga practice can be applied both developmentally or therapeutically to enhance health, well being , or life potential from many different directions, such as to support our efforts to:
Utilising Yoga concepts it is possible, within a careful individual Yoga teaching, to introduce practices and lifestyle skill strategies that both respect our issues, problems or health, as well as supporting our intention to reduce their negative effects in the future, alongside cultivating positive alternatives.
Here the approach must be different for each person as our potential to practice Yoga will be affected by the problem, or the problem by our attitude towards working with it. However, practicing Yoga for healthcare recovery, as a lifestyle support skill or for personal development also presumes that we are willing to accept responsibility for making and sustaining changes within our own situation.
Also according to Āyurveda those diseases that are chronic and cannot be cured by medicine alone can also be helped by using Yoga. So Yoga can be used as a support alongside or complement to other forms of healthcare.
A Personal Yoga Practice is designed for regular use at home
It can vary from a two or three times daily short 10-15 minute practice for Yoga as therapeutic healthcare, to an hour or more single practice for students, depending on its role and how much time the Yoga student is prepared to make available. Typically it is around 25 minutes for beginners working with general postures. This can expand as we develop our work with postures or embrace progressive facets of practice.
The Yoga Teacher guides the student through the Yoga practice, carefully ensuring that it meets their needs and that they are comfortable with the structure and forms used. The frequency and overall span of personal Yoga lessons can vary according to the needs, concerns and requests of the Yoga student regarding such as seated breathing, meditation or other practices.
121 Online Review Sessions for Personal Practice
Increasingly I have found this medium helpful as a means to offer follow up practice support reviews for 121 students as an adjunct between live meetings, especially where there are long distances involved in terms of direct access. This point of contact offered opportunities to discuss questions, or to clarify interpretations, or observe how the students practice mirrored the teacher’s intention.
121 Online eLessons for Personal Practice
Requests to explore your ‘on the mat/cushion’ personal practice options within areas such as Āsana, Mudrā, and especially Prāṇāyāma, Dhyānam and Chanting solely through a virtual medium are a further option. However any choices are also dependent on circumstances, needs and possibilities around the student and the virtual medium.
|So, given these considerations, I am open to discussing options with interested students but would need to look at each situation and the options available.
For example, I feel extending into the area of personal practice from a developmental viewpoint may also need to be linked or preceded by study of practice theory or textual sources such as through the:
In situations where the primary request is from a therapeutic need and not at a point where practice theory or textual study is initially appropriate, we would need to discuss what options are available that can be developed purely through online mediums.
