A practice of meditation is a goal that many people struggle to achieve. It can be frustrating and difficult to quiet the constant chatter of our minds and our everyday stresses.
I have found one of the best ways for my students to relax the mind and restore the body is with a guided mediation called Yoga Nidra. In this guided meditation, students can add their own intentions to create a personalized and restorative experience.
These sessions are for the student who would prefer one-on-one instruction to learn alignment, poses, or meditation.
These may also be for the student who is not comfortable learning in a classroom environment, or the student who wants to practice on their own schedule.
Please see the different types of yoga offered below.
I have found that practicing yoga with people who have or recovering from cancer to be inspiring and life-altering. In working with these students (as with many other students), I have noticed that there is often a disconnection between the mind and the body and yoga with meditation helps to restore this connection.
When there is pain in everyday movements that was non-existent before surgery, yoga can help restore flexibility and range of motion. And with a cancer diagnosis, emotional issues can arise, such as feelings of sadness, fear, as well as, changes in body image that need to be addressed.
I have found that meditation can be very helpful to these students in finding balance, acknowledgement and acceptance of these feelings. Through gentle movement, breathing and mediation, yoga can aid in your healing process.
Yoga has also been scientifically proven to help cancer patients and survivors by lessening the effects of treatments (less fatigue and nausea), lowering cortisol levels (stress hormone) and by helping the mind become more calm and at peace.
These classes are specifically designed for your participants in mind, whether it be for stretching the muscles that are tense from sitting all day or working on the breath to facilitate a better night's sleep, or to improve memory and concentration.

Guided Meditations (Nidra)
Yoga Nidra, also called the ‘Yogic Sleep’, will guide you to the state between wakefulness and sleep. These guided meditations are a systematic way to create physical, mental and emotional relaxation and release accumulated tension in the body. Gentle movement may also be performed prior to the meditations. These meditations usually last between 30-40 minutes.
