WHY PRIVATE LESSONS?
Every body needs individual yoga.
Group classes prove that one size does not fit all. No teacher can truly address every student’s needs during group practice.
Each of us needs a teacher to focus exclusively on our bodies, our patterns, our strengths, and our weaknesses. Only then can we effectively grow our yoga, whether raw beginners or seasoned practitioners.
Lois is regarded as one of the world’s top yoga teachers.
Lois has taught thousands of students and trained hundreds of teachers. She continues to supplement her multiple teaching certifications with ongoing studies of anatomy, Western medicine, and conventional physical therapy. She delights in getting newcomers started on the path to well-being as much as raising the bar for advanced practitioners. She leads a weekly Injury Clinic to empower people to heal and prevent injuries of all sorts and has an intimate knowledge of how bodies work and why they sometimes break down.
LOIS CAN HELP ANYONE:
• “too stiff“ to do yoga
• too intimidated to try yoga
• “too old“ to exercise (her oldest is 93)
• Coping with physical limitations (can’t walk, can’t stand, can’t bend a knee, can’t raise arms overhead, can’t put weight on arms/hands, etc.)
• Facing, recovering from or hoping to avoid surgery
• Wanting to shed extra pounds
• Living with an anxious brain
• Pulled down by the darkness all around us
HOW IT WORKS?
• Daily (yes! If you have the time and resources)
• Weekly or biweekly
• Occasional “tune-ups” to refine and grow your practice
• As needed to address injuries, hurdles, and plateaus in your practice
Lois teaches at her home studio in New York City or East Hampton. She can also come to you if you live/work in Manhattan or the Hamptons.
Rates depend upon location and time.
WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY
Lois is an outstanding teacher and an excellent motivator. More importantly, for me, she is a student of the human body and how it changes and performs (or does not) as one gets older. She has the ability and the knowledge to choose the right exercises and stretches for the body and the mind issues that her students bring to her class and carry around with them. She takes great pride in finding the key to unlocking your ailments and improving your motion.
I came to Lois shortly after my fourth spine surgery and in a fair amount of pain and spasm. Lois- who has a deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology and is a master of multiple modalities- took the time to do an extraordinarily thorough assessment of my limitations, needs, and desires. She quickly put together an exercise and stretching program for me that was highly personalized that reduced my symptoms and got me back into being able to exercise again. She is devoted, caring, smart, and a lifelong student of the human body. I am deeply grateful.
Two years ago chronic plantar fascitis had left me with my whole body out of alignment, unable to walk without pain, afraid that my shuffle would never get better. I was lucky a friend recommended I call Lois. The result of working with Lois? I can run on the beach and have not felt so strong and flexible in 20 years.
