Private yoga for adaptation
Do you feel that the state or shape of your body or spine are different from what is considered “normal” or “average”?
Or do you feel your yoga practice needs to be adapted to your age, changing body or your changing needs? Private yoga guidance for adaptation allows you to adapt your yoga practice to your specific situation, body shape and possibilities.
Sometimes the answers simply cannot be found in a group class. Or pre-recorded online yoga videos leave us unsatisfied.
The good news is that Yoga Kitchen proposes individual guidance for yoga on appointment.
A private yoga guidance consultation allows you to adapt and put the appropriate emphasis in your yoga practice.
You will learn and understand which exercises and postures are the best, which kind of adaptations you can make and with which postures you’d better be sparse and prudent.
How does private yoga guidance work?
First of all, we shall clarify which goals you want to attain by means of yoga.
Next, starting from a series of observations and a couple of tests we will establish your personal profile and the most adequate recommendations.
Following that, we will put together a personal adapted yoga session if necessary.
By the end of the session you will go home with a written report of these recommendations and the eventual session.
How much does an hour of private yoga guidance cost?
A yoga therapy consultation lasts for one hour and costs 60,00 €.

Can I have some more information about adapting my yoga practice?
Keeping things balanced in yoga practice
In physical yoga practice, several different functions occur. The most important ones are:
- Forward bends (“closing” the body)
- Backbends (“opening” the body)
- Lateral extensions
In a good yoga session, all four of these functions will occur in a balanced way, in the shape of yoga postures or asanas.
But what if your the state or shape of your body or spine are different from what is considered “normal” or “average”?
For example, the spine has several natural curves, but quite a lot of us have them more or less pronounced. One can have a lordosis (hollowness) that is more pronounced than average at the lower part of the back, or a cyphosis (roundness) that is more generous than usual at the upper part of the back.
Left/right asymmetries such as caused by scoliosis occur quite frequently.
Often, we are not even aware of them and they do not cause any significant discomfort.
How to intervene regarding these differences?
Some of these situations, or other phenomena, can be of structural or functional nature:
- structural: the structure of the body and/or spine is permanently altered
- functional: my attitude (e.g.: work charge or emotional state) has altered or modified the posture of the body
In the first case, yoga therapy will avoid the worsening of the structural modification of the body shape.
In the second case, the modification of the body shape can be readjusted.
