What are Private Lessons?
Sometimes called “Privates,” you can work one-on-one with Anne to create a custom-made practice for your goals, interests, and lifestyle. She’ll assess your needs and create the right practice for you, which you’ll have in clearly written, easy-to-follow instructions. If you’ve felt a benefit in group classes, imagine how you can feel with your own daily practice — whether you have 15 minutes or an hour, we’ll find what fits your life. Book your appointment by January 31st to receive the 25% discount.

Excerpts from The American Chiropractic Association website:
Physical benefits of yoga:
- increased flexibility
These benefits are valuable not only to athletes, but to less-active people looking for a way to add more movement to their lives.
By bringing attention to the present moment and working to focus the activity of the mind, yoga provides a way to naturally:
- lower blood pressure
- handle stress
- reduce anxiety
Yoga emphasizes a “wellness” lifestyle and its focus on deep breathing helps to calm the nerves, relieve anxiety, Increase circulation, as well as strengthen and expand the lungs and diaphragm.
A Complement to Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic aims to enhance neurological function by improving the relationships of the spine and related structures. Once functional relationships are improved, yoga helps to strengthen the supporting muscles through a series of poses (called “asanas”), designed to improve posture and strength.
