Private Groups

Bring your family, friends, neighbors, or a any group together to practice Yoga in the privacy of your own home or space, whether it is for a one time special event or a regular weekly practice. Check out the classes below or work with me to tailor a class that meets the needs of your group.

 

Kripalu Gentle/Beginners Flow

Kripalu Yoga is an integrated system of warm-ups, postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques that are self-transforming! In this class we use props to help support our bodies, as we match breath to movement, focus our attention and explore the collective strength of connective tissue, joints and muscles. Clear, detailed instructions including options for poses are given so students may develop a heightened sense of body awareness. In addition to proper physical alignment, Kripalu Yoga focuses on aligning thoughts, feelings, and actions, so that our self-expression in the world reflects our growing knowledge of our true nature. Through this practice you can enter meditative states that awaken compassion and transform your sense of what it means to be alive. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or a spend most of your time sitting behind a desk, this class is for YOU!

 

Kripalu Moderate-to-Vigorous Vinyasa Flow

This class is more of a strengthening practice that includes longer holding times, more inter-connective flow between postures, meditation in motion, greater emphasis on internal awareness and less detailed instruction. Asana is synchronized with controlled breathing and energy locks (bandhas). An internal heat is produced in the body, allowing for purifying of the organs. Whether you’re a beginner looking for a challenge, or you have a strength training regimen and want to gain flexibility and increase mindfulness, you are welcome to join!

*Familiarity with yoga postures is required.

Are you concerned about the health and wellbeing of your staff, or do you have a wellness program already set up in your workplace? Perhaps you’re already a passionate yoga student and know that your colleagues would benefit from a yoga practice of gentle postures, meditation and/or relaxation techniques?

 

Having yoga at work helps improve employee productivity, creativity and mental clarity, all the while reducing the number of sick days and improving morale. In this current economic environment, it is more important than ever that employees have the tools necessary to manage stress and heavier than normal workloads. So many people are caught between long hours at the office and time spent with their families. With such demands on their schedules, physical activity is often the first thing to go. But being less active can actually make meeting those demands even more difficult. After awhile being too sedentary, your mind and body fatigue easily, leaving you with less overall energy to give to your job, your family and yourself! Yoga in the workplace is a convenient and smart way to keep a balanced life and fit in a workout, without ever leaving the premises.


By collaborating the needs and goals of your staff, Farah can put together a complete holistic program either as a course of regular weekly classes or as individual workshops. To get started all you need is a group of 10 people and a large, quiet, clear space – it could be a board meeting cleared of tables and chairs, or in warmer months, a quiet grassy area outside on the premises.

 

Classes can be conducted anytime across the working day, but most popular are sessions at lunchtime and immediately after work. Classes are offered in a 30-90 minute formats and are adjusted for students of all levels. Classes are most effective when run in a series of once or twice a week for a minimum of 8 weeks. Cost can be divided between the employer and employee or fully funded by the employer.

 

Students find that bringing yoga into the workday is a wonderful way to rejuvenate and release pent-up stress caused by a hectic schedule and bring balance to the working environment. The vibrant energy and sense of calm created with yoga in the workplace can further resonate into all aspects of your daily life. 

 

Benefits of Farah’s Workplace Yoga Classes include:

- Reduce repetitive strain injury

- Breathing techniques decrease stress and headaches

- Release tension and muscle pain in the back, neck and shoulders; knees, hips, and ankles

- Increase physical strength and flexibility; reduce fatigue

- Enhance focus and concentrations on tasks and manage the anxiety of deadlines and presentations

Farah listens to what the class participants want and makes a conscious effort to work with their individual limitations and build on their abilities. She makes everyone feel comfortable with their own ability level and encourages us to challenge ourselves when possible. From these classes, I now have skills to calm myself when stressed. I feel good about participating in an exercise that helps both mind and body.
— Gail, 55

Yoga was traditionally taught one-on-one with yogic masters passing down wisdom to their students in a way that was meaningful to each student. Individualized attention for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth is perhaps even more important in today’s fast-paced, multitasking life.

Yoga allows us to look at our pains and discomforts and ask ourselves – what are we meant to learn from these sensations in our bodies? Why do we feel discomfort or relief in the areas that we do? What is it telling us about ourselves and the way in which we live our lives?
— Michael Lee, author of "Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy - A Bridge from Body to Soul"

Private yoga therapy sessions can help you delve deeper into your body, heart and mind and aid the release of blockages that can be difficult to process in a class setting.

By working one-on-one with Farah at her home studio or in your own home, she can better address your specific needs and goals. Whether you are working through an injury or medical condition, struggling with emotional challenges, wishing to refine your home yoga practice, or have a desire to cultivate a more yogic lifestyle, private sessions can equip you with valuable tools for happiness whatever your current situation.

After one private yoga session with Farah, I learned more than I have in all the other yoga classes I’ve ever taken, combined. Farah is completely focused and attentive, and helped me find movements that were exactly right for my body at that moment. She has a rare ability to hear and respond to her students needs, and at the same time encourage them to listen to their own intuition and move with their bodies. I enjoyed her calm compassion and the joy she brings to yoga.
— Alexis, 31
Although I’ve been physically active my whole life, and I clock in 50 miles of running and biking a week, it was so hard to keep up in yoga class. After just one hour session with Farah I have a better sense now of how to modify for my tight hamstrings and get a good stretch in my back and shoulders. After the session, she gave me a prescription for what I need to be doing at least three times a week so that I’m more flexible. I left feeling like all these knots in my body were untied. Waking up the next morning ... I felt so refreshed, not achey like I usually do.

Private yoga sessions are for you if:

- You are new to practicing yoga and want to be able to keep up in large group classes;

- You want to learn details about poses and proper alignment, breathing and meditation that may otherwise be difficult to learn in a large group setting;

- You struggle with certain poses or have medical issues that need attention;

- You want to learn modifications for poses, how to use props, and receive adjustments

- You want to safely and slowly learn advancing postures such as inversions, arm balances and backbends;

- You have an injury/just had surgery but want to keep practicing without hurting yourself further;

- You want to reduce pain and muscular tension in a specific area of your body;

- You would like to learn breathing techniques for deep relaxation and meditation for stress relief

 

Some students find that just a few sessions are enough to take their yoga to the next level, while others prefer regular sessions to augment their group and home practice. Consider a private session for guidance and personal attention in your next step toward becoming more skillful in life, enhancing wellbeing, having healthy relationships, and becoming an ally with your mind.
