One-On-One Instruction on Yoga
Yoga (or better known as Hatha Yoga) is a collection of physical exercises called asanas (postures). These postures are designed to strengthen and align your muscles, organs and spine. They also focus on your breath, which helps you to disengage from the stresses of the outside world. The increased strength, flexibility and concentration gained through asana practice lead to a better body and a sound mind. The benefits of yoga are now well documented and many individuals are taking up yoga as a pathway to better life.
Many individuals who are new to yoga but are desirous of incorporating it into their lives are discouraged when they join group yoga classes. They are discouraged due to their initial unfamiliarity and inability to perform the postures that others are doing in the class. Many individuals have specific conditions, diagnoses, or limitations which may prevent them from staying with the instructors in yoga classes that they may have tried. For many others, a personal self-assessment of physical inflexibility becomes an obstacle to benefiting from yoga.
Everyone, regardless of their age or physical limitations, can benefit from practice of yoga asanas that are appropriate for them.
Himalayan Center offers personalized instruction in yoga to individuals desirous of such training. One-on-one sessions are one hour long and allow one of our experienced yoga teachers to work with the student to identify the specific asanas (postures) which are suitable to the individual needs, based upon any concerns, conditions, or limitations that a student has. Once the specific asanas have been identified for a student's program, the teacher would then instruct the students in performing each of the asanas in a safe manner to its maximum benefit to the student. All our teachers are trained, certified and registered with Yoga Alliance.

One-On-One Instruction in Meditation
Meditation has become one of the most discussed personal improvement disciplines of modern times. Indeed, the neurological research during the past sixty years has indicated a wide range of mental, physiological, emotional, AND physical benefits of regular meditation. Humans have been meditating for thousands of years for personal growth and enlightenment. Meditation is open to anyone who wishes to bring about growth in their lives.
Many people, out of a habit of looking for a phone app for their needs, are turning to meditation apps. While these apps provide a wide range of guided meditation and training, their approach is impersonal, problem-focused, and promotes external reliance for meditation rather than encouraging personal effort. For many individuals, joining a meditation class with a qualified instructor is the best way to learn the process and techniques in meditation. For those individuals who feel unempowered with the topic of meditation, or individuals with specific needs and challenges (including those who have tried the meditation apps but without long term success), Himalayan Center offers one-on-one instruction on meditation. We teach meditation within a secular framework using multi-faceted approach to meditation that is thousands of years old.
Learning to meditate is the finest investment one can make in oneself. All our teachers are trained, certified and registered with Yoga Alliance.
