Yoga is known to do the following;

Yoga combines popular stress-reducing techniques, including exercise and learning to control the breath, clearing the mind, and relaxing the body.

What do I bring with me to yoga class?
If you’re coming to my in-home yoga studio, the only thing you’ll need to have for your yoga class is an open mind. I have extra yoga mats that are sanitized after every class. I’ll also set the scene with essential oils (or omit them on request for those with sensitivities), and calming music. If you’re doing yoga sessions in your home, I ask that you provide your own yoga mat.
Do you travel to my area?
I host private yoga sessions at my in-home yoga studio located in Wilmington, Delaware, or in the comfort of your own candlelit living room. My general service area in Delaware is Wilmington, New Castle, Newark, Pike Creek, Bear, Hockessin, and Middletown. My general service area in Pennsylvania is Kennett, Glenn Mills, Garnet Valley, and Chadds Ford. On occasions, exceptions can be made for those that live outside my service area. Check with me.
How often should I practice yoga?
Yoga is amazing. Even if you practice for one hour a week you’ll still experience the benefits. Of course, the more you practice, the more benefits you will experience. I suggest starting with two or three times a week, for about 60-90 minutes each time. If you can only do 20 minutes per session, that’s fine too. Don’t allow time constraints or unrealistic goals to be an obstacle. You will likely find that after a while your desire to practice naturally expands and you will find yourself doing more and more.
What is Vinyasa yoga?
Vinyasa yoga, sometimes referred to as “flow” yoga, is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using your breath. The variable nature of Vinyasa helps develop a more balanced body as well as helping to prevent repetitive motion injuries which are common, especially if you have a job where you perform the same motions every day.
What is a postpartum doula?
The primary goal of a postpartum doula is to support a new mother after she’s given birth. This includes a plethora of services from providing assistance with basic newborn care to postnatal nutrition support. For a complete list of all the services included in my postpartum doula care click here.
