What style of yoga do you teach?
There are as many styles of yoga as there are yoga teachers.
Focusing on slow, flowing vinyasa, Georgina brings yoga to life through the exploration of asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing) and meditation. She is also certified to teach pre- and post-natal yoga.
If you are working with Georgina privately, she plans each session according to your unique preferences, needs and aspirations.
How is yoga different from stretching or other kinds of fitness?
An ancient practice, yoga is so much more than the physical postures (asana) we are familiar with in the West. Unlike Pilates, Body Balance or Barre, asana is just one of yoga’s eight limbs.
In the physical practice of yoga, the integration of breath and movement draws the attention inward. This increases awareness and brings the nervous system back into balance.
The physical, mental and emotional benefits include:
- strength, flexibility and balance
- better posture
- healthy spine and back
- more energy
- relaxation and reduction of stress
- better quality sleep
- productivity, clarity and focus
- mental, physical and emotional resilience.
I’ve never done yoga before. Is that okay?
YES, every journey starts somewhere! Whatever your age, size or physical ability, yoga is suitable for everyone.
The IGNITE package introduces a series of basic postures in a supportive, non-competitive environment.
I’m not flexible. Can I do yoga?
You do not need to be able to touch your toes to do yoga. Come as you are and do what you can; regular practice will naturally increase physical and mental flexibility.
What happens during a private yoga session?
Ranging from 45-90 minutes, no two private yoga sessions are the same.
Your first session begins with a conversation about your prior experience of yoga or, if you are new to yoga, your reasons for starting; your goals for your yoga practice; as well as your lifestyle, injuries and any medical conditions. Georgina will then guide you through a short physical assessment. This is also your chance to get to know Georgina, ask me questions and raise any concerns.
Georgina plans each session according to your unique preferences, needs and aspirations, incorporating asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing), meditation and relaxation as appropriate. If you want more or less of something, are feeling discomfort, or have questions, don’t be afraid to speak up; this experience is all about you.
As there is a limit to how much we can accomplish in each session, you may be given suggestions for practising at home.
Where are you located?
As a mobile yoga teacher, Georgina comes to you, saving you time, money and energy. You can practise in the privacy of your home or, if you have a suitable space, you may find it more convenient to practise at work.
Prices are based on Brisbane CBD and northern suburbs. If you live or work further afield, we are happy to discuss your requirements.
What do I need to begin?
That’s the beauty of yoga; aside from an open mind, all you really need is your body.Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely. You won’t need special footwear because yoga is practised barefoot. We provide, set up and pack away all the equipment for each session but if you have a mat or props that you would like to use, that’s ok too.
I have an injury. Can I still practice yoga?
YES. Yoga is suitable for everyone and is a great way to ease back into physical activity. Be patient and listen to your body.
If you are pregnant, have an injury or medical condition, or have recently undergone surgery, please let us know so we can help you to practise safely.
If you are in your first trimester of pregnancy or have a serious health condition you may need to obtain medical clearance before practising yoga.
How much does it cost to work with you?
Do you offer private health fund rebates?
Many health funds recognise the health benefits of yoga and, depending on your level of cover, you may be eligible for a rebate.
As each private health fund has its own claim process, inclusions and potential rebate amounts, please contact your provider to determine whether your “extras” policy includes yoga, and what you need to do to make a claim.
If you require a tax invoice, please let us know.
