Private Yoga or Qigong Lessons, Yoga Personal Training Sessions, and Virtual Yoga and Qigong
One-on-One Yoga or Qigong sessions are ideal if you don’t feel comfortable in a group setting, if you have any injuries or health challenges, if your schedule doesn’t match up with regular group classes, or if you would like to take your Yoga practice to the next level. Individual sessions are tailored to your specific needs and abilities, with corrections, adjustments and modifications all designed to yield better results.
Yoga Personal Training: Yoga PT is perfect for specific goals and objectives. Such as Yoga sessions to help improve and recover from sports (i.e. to improve golf game or to help prepare for Triathalons), for weight loss, to help improve range of motion and flexibility after a surgery or procedure, or to help heal from a stressful event. By targeting different parts of the body for more therapeutic benefit, or emphasizing the body/mind/spirit aspects of Yoga practice and meditation, Yoga Personal Training is a convenient and accessible option to all levels of experience. Skype/Zoom sessions are available for those who travel or live outside of Indianapolis. *Gift Certificates and packages available

This Yoga CD/MP3 (AUDIO INSTRUCTION ONLY) is intended as a practical tool to manage your health, energy, and stress on a daily basis. By using various short yoga practices throughout your day, you can refuel your positive energy so you'll be able to meet your daily responsibilities with more mindfulness, calmness, and energy. This is perfect for beginners or those who want to do certain yoga practices at home in addition to attending yoga classes. The only "exercise sequence" of postures is the second track, "Sun Salutations." The rest of the tracks are all restorative and relaxing and no prior yoga experience is needed.
Meditation is the most important part of both yoga and qigong practices. Each class concludes with a meditation.
I also offer Virtual Guided Meditation classes online and private or corporate meditation sessions for individuals or groups.

Qigong is an ancient mind/body/spirit practice that is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, (like Accupuncture or Energy Medicine). Similar to Tai Chi, but more emphasis on the meridians and building Qi; It involves gentle movement, meditation, visualization and breathwork. Qigong can be used to strengthen and connect with your vital energy for improved health, inner peace and well-being.

Reiki is an ancient and powerful system of natural healing for the body and mind which has its roots in Tibet and Japan. “Rei” means "universal" and “ki” means "Life Force Energy." Ki or Life Force Energy is present in all living things and keeping our energy (ki) in balance and flowing is essential to maintaining optimum health and well-being.
Reiki is used as a complement to other therapies to promote stress relief and relaxation and also facilitates the body's own innate healing process. Reiki is similar to "laying of hands", or "healing touch", which act in similar ways to promote healing. Reiki is also used to balance chakras (energy centers in the body), release negative emotions, and blockages in our energy pathways (meridians).
Since the body and mind are inseparable, a buildup of stress and tension, along with poor diet and lack of exercise, has an effect on our energy and leads to disease and illness if left ignored or untreated. Most people report feeling extremely relaxed and more "open," "clear-headed," and "connected" to themselves and life again. This effect can last for several days or weeks.
When Should I Schedule a Reiki Session?
Whenever you have been under a great deal of stress, during a significant life change, when you need pain relief, or simply want a "tune-up" to feel balanced and connected again. It's also helpful to receive Reiki treatments during the season changes which are stressful times as the body adapts to the new season, or anytime you are experiencing emotional pain or grief. *Additional add- on treatments include Sound Healing with Tuning Forks and Qigong Healing.
