For all individual classes you will have a comprehensive assessment lasting about about an hour and half, depending on the severity of the condition. This includes taking a full history of your health, current situation and observing your present patterns of movement and breath.
The assessment ensures that you feel happy for us to work together. Here we will explore different ways to incorporate yoga into your schedule: there will be various possibilities and you can decide which suits you best.
The first yoga lesson will follow after the assessment. You will be guided through your own personal practice and taught to perform this safely at home. Generally a written copy of your practice will be given as an aide memoire.
You should allow some time for the benefits of the practice to be experienced: each individual will respond in their own unique and appropriate way. Therefore a minimum of four lessons over three months is suggested.
"Master your breath, let the self be in bliss, contemplate on the sublime within you." T Krishnamacharya
For group classes students should download the general health questionnaire and bring it with them to the class.
"Celeste has helped me over the years with different problems. She is thoughtful, knowledgeable and perceptive. She sees everyone as an individual and took time to understand my particular problems and how they affected me. Importantly she is also practical and realistic - the yoga practices were tailored not only to my physical need but how much time I would actually spend on them. She could not have been more caring or supportive." Kate B."
