Private Classes With Kirsten Blokland
My view of yoga is not a workout, but a “work-in” – rooted in self-inquiry, contemplation, and self-compassion, with the individual’s inner wisdom serving as the guide. My personal yoga practice and teaching represent an eclectic blend of yoga traditions I have studied in depth over the years, coupled with features from the functional movement discipline. This multidisciplinary approach provides a rich vocabulary in movement and mindfulness, nourishing the body, mind, and spirit.
Each private session includes a theme from yoga philosophy, woven into the session from start to finish, explored from physical and psychological perspectives. Homework will be assigned at the end of each session to facilitate maximum benefit, as well as to encourage the development of a home practice that will eventually be self-sustaining. I like to precede the initial private session by a free-of-charge conversation inspired by the question, “What do you need from your yoga practice right now?” After discussing your needs, goals, and coming up with a general plan, I will give you some time to decide if I’m the right teacher for you.
I welcome the opportunity to work with students of all ages and levels of experience. My special interests include Yoga for Individuals with Chronic Inflammatory Conditions (e.g., Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis), Contemplative Movement for Meditation (designed to cultivate meditative quiescence), Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Vinyasa Flow.
