All programs begin with a baseline assessment, including discussion of your current and past health history, your goals, and a basic movement screen to identify any imbalances in your body. Optional assessments include circumference measurements and fitness testing. Each client will receive a personalized program based on individual goals, but everyone can expect to cultivate a strong core, good posture, and flexibility — key elements for a lifetime of wellness.
Training sessions can be one-on-one, partners, or small group. Training with a buddy is fun, motivating, AND more affordable.
Johanna completed her 200 hour certified Yoga Teacher Training in the Vinyasa and Power yoga traditions at The Studio DC. Vinyasa and Power yoga link movement and breath while maintaining continuous movement throughout the session. This builds heat in the body, which allows tight muscles to lengthen and relax, and creates a greater physical challenge that increases strength and flexibility. You do not need to be flexible already in order to do yoga; in fact, lack of flexibility is a perfect reason to get started. Come check out a lunchtime class in Playa Vista, or schedule a private yoga session.
