Yoga - Dr Jay Rappazzo


Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years and has many health benefits. The typical yoga class focuses on learning physical poses, which are called asanas. They usually include some form of breathing technique and possibly a meditation technique as well. Some yoga classes are designed purely for relaxation and/or meditation while others focus on a more physical component. Yoga’s meditative qualities have shown proven success in treating anxiety, depression and other mood disorders.

There are many styles and schools of yoga that teach you how to move your body and mind in new ways.

Yoga is a physical, emotional, and spiritual practice – and will benefit a person in all ways even if the main focus is on just one. Yoga helps focus us on connecting with ourselves, making our world the best possible world it can be. Attending a yoga class is an effective way of learning and practicing; however, there may come a time when a student’s need can best be served in a one-on-one relationship with a teacher.

In a private yoga session, I devote my undivided attention to your yoga practice, tailoring the session to your individual needs. Private yoga classes can take you further in your practice than a group class can.

Private classes can help in the rehabilitation of injuries, core strengthening, increasing flexibility, or working specifically on a certain area of the body. I will help you modify postures and then develop alternatives to accommodate your physical ability. A personal practice can assist you in the precise alignment of each asana, techniques for deeper meditation, and pranayama breathing exercises.

I offer private yoga instruction and customized group classes.

My mission is to support your healing, optimal health and personal transformation through yoga.

Corporate sessions are available on custom-tailored terms. Please send us an inquiry and we will work with you to craft a yoga program for your employees.
