Personal Training

Welcome. I have found mind-body practices to be transformational in my own life, and I delight in helping others to establish, customize, and/or enrich their practices.

I specialize in the areas of self-compassion, mindfulness, meditation, and yoga, and offer customized training, teaching, guidance in support of your goals.

  • Do you have – or do you wish to establish – a practice in yoga, self-compassion, mindfulness, or meditation?
  • Are you ready to enhance, expand upon, re-commit to, or deepen your practice?
  • Do you wish to bring your practice “off the mat,” and into your life – integrating practice into ordinary moments of daily life?
  • Have you appreciated classes in yoga, Mindful Self-Compassion, or Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and are looking for support to continue practicing, or to make the practices your own?

If you answered yes to any of the above, I would love to talk with you about the possibility of working together.

This service is offered one-on-one as private classes with customized instruction and guidance, discussion to explore your insights and reactions, and to identify how to incorporate the practices into your life.

How is this different from coaching? Personal training primarily focuses on the practices themselves – meditations, self-compassion exercises, various elements of a yoga practice – with support to customize those practices for you and your life, such as developing a home practice and/or working through blocks with your meditation or mindfulness practices.

Coaching takes a holistic approach, focusing on the client and their goals, and then incorporating yoga, mindfulness or self-compassion when appropriate to help for more insight and to provide tools to progress toward goals.

Is this therapy? No, this is one-on-one training and is not therapy and I am not a licensed therapist. Personal training, instead, is a transformative process for skills development, stress management, embodiment, self-awareness, empowerment, discovery, and growth.

Can I combine personal training with therapy? Yes. Learning the skills of self-compassion and mindfulness can enhance your work in therapy. Many therapists report that they don’t have the time to provide training in self-compassion or mindfulness in their sessions, as they are focused on other aspects of the healing process. It is possible to request a signed release so that I can coordinate with your therapist, with your permission.
