Why do I need a consultation first?
Dosha Yoga is a personal program designed specifically for your body and lifestyle. A consultation helps properly assess your doshic balance and plan the safest and shortest path to your personal goals.
Are the sessions live or recorded?
All your classes are live and private 1:1 sessions. Currently we are conducting classes via zoom meetings for your safety and convenience. Your class can be recorded for your future viewing, if you wish.
Why do I have to purchase sessions in a series of 3?
Dosha Yoga is a growth based system: more than a specific style or dogma of fitness, it’s about helping your body evolve into and through a dynamic state of balance. It’s a personal process that requires more than one class.
How often should I do Dosha Yoga classes?
Dosha Yoga is designed to help you bring modern Ayurveda into your life, and if you can make it a daily practice, even on your own, it can be life-changing. Your series schedule will be based on your goals and availability. Most people benefit from classes at least once a week for maintaining wellness and increasing their sessions per week to evolve through their goals.
What’s an Alignment Workshop? Who should do it?
An Alignment Workshop is your chance to have another private yoga class that’s outside of your current series of dosha balancing flows. These Workshops are the same length of a class (around 45min) but instead of going through a flow of asanas, your teacher can work with you on specific points of improvement in your form and technique. It’s your time to develop the habits of safe alignment or the strength needed to get into and out of new or challenging poses more gracefully, or you can workshop on breathwork. Alignment Workshops are open to all Dosha Yoga students anytime you request one, or if your teacher recommends it.
