BECOMING A CLIENT
Working with Joy for a Happier Lifestyle
If you are new to practicing with me, the following information will help you determine if I am the right teacher for you and help you feel settled and comfortable practicing with me in-person. A good place to begin is on my home page, where I detail the clients I love to work with and offer a glimpse of my style of teaching yoga. If you're instantly hooked or a bit more curious, feel free to get in touch with me and come back to this page and read about how you can become a practicing client with me in 2021.
YOGA WITH JOY
I primarily teach yoga classes in short commitment-based series, recurring on a cycle throughout the year. At this time, I don’t not offer regular drop-in classes. One-time events will be offered on limited basis as the COVID climate eases and clears. While my private schedule is currently full for Spring 2021, I happily take interest for future openings. I especially love to work with those with unique physical and orthopedic needs committed to regaining agency over their body.
If you are deciding about making a short-term commitment to a yoga series for Spring 2021, know that the classes offered will be tailored to help you and your internal systems rebuild a sense of “normalcy” following a year of pandemic living.
The classes will be designed to address the following:
Physiological imbalances throughout our whole body-system;
Compensations and weakness as a result of poor postural scenarios and movement mechanics, and extra time in the sit position, including the physical shift to working virtually;
Physical and emotional remnants from being disconnected both socially and from a more active-lifestyle;
Stress-management and exercises for developing greater focus using body and breath awareness;
Long-term COVID effects including concentration, respiratory capacity and endurance, release of tension, fatigue and clenching and acceptance of relaxation;
Strength and stabilization of the tissues supporting your spine (including the neck) and hips to help dampen the dominating sensation of being disconnected from your self and experiencing new or changed discomfort and pain in the body.
At this time the number of series I’ll be offering will be limited as will the participant count in each. By 2022, I will be expanding my offerings, giving you more options to practice yoga with me, at which point I envision being able to host more than my current maximum of 7 students per session. In the meantime there are ways to practice yoga with me online that can easily fit your schedule and immediate movement and mindfulness needs.
If you’ve read this far and are seriously considering trying a short-series of yoga with me, which I wholeheartedly encourage you to do, please continue onto the Studio Welcome Guide where I detail everything you need to know about what to expect during in-person classes at my new Mayfield studio. This expanded location sits right on the Scranton/Carbondale Highway less than one-minute from the Casey Highway's exits for Jermyn and Carbondale at Meredith Street.
If you are considering joining a short-series in the near future (2021), but not for the upcoming Spring session, please reach out to me - knowing your interest helps me to better manage my offerings to you!
