are you struggling with consistency?

Does this sound like you?

Like many, you've been WFH since mid-March. Overnight, your home has become your office, gym and maybe even a classroom for your kids. Cabin fever is kicking in and you're having a hard time dedicating quality time for yourself.

You hop on YouTube searching for "beginning yoga" and make your pick. After a 20 - 30 minute class, the aches and pains are gone, you feel refreshed, energized and in a slightly better mood.

Then the chaotic routine sets in and everyone else's needs seem more important than yours.

You want to stay physically active, maximize your energy levels and deal better with stress.

 

You need a gentle nudge in the right direction and someone to help you stay on track.

That's where I come in.

what i do

I teach therapeutic, goal-oriented private yoga to

busy professionals

face-to-face in

San Francisco

and online.

I make sure to use clear accessible language, every session is highly customized, time efficient and cost effective.

I am committed to helping you recharge physically and mentally so you can navigate the lockdown with

more ease.

WHO i work with

After many years of working with people 1-on-1,

my clients tend to be:

busy professionals

Work has always been top priority  in your life and your physical body is now starting to complain: lower back pain, neck and shoulder stiffness, difficulty unwinding at the end of the day. You want to make up for lost time and therefore need a time efficient and result driven movement practice.

working mamas

You want to prepare physically and mentally to navigate pregnancy and birth. Since you work full time, it's hard to find prenatal yoga classes that work with your schedule. Plus, you know you would appreciate being taken care of for a change.

healing from an injury

You're temporarily limited by an injury but wish to continue to be physically active. Aside from your physical therapy exercises you're not sure what else is safe to do. You need expert guidance and a highly tailored program to switch things up and help you rehab, asap.

seasoned athletes

You have a super strong workout routine, but are as stiff as a board. You know yoga would be a great complement to your movement diet, but you're afraid you might not be able to keep up in group setting.

Is online private yoga for me?

If you answer YES to 5 or more of the questions below, I'd love to work with you.

1.

Despite experiencing the benefits of yoga, do you struggle to establish a consistent practice?

2.

Do you deal with on-going symptoms of anxiety and depression and find it hard to feel in control of your life?

3.

Are you more relationship oriented and learn better and faster in a contained environment?

4.

Are you coming back to a movement routine and need to work on flexibility and strength?

5.

Are you nursing or guarding an injury and want to move without worsening your symptoms?

6.

Do you have a unique body and know class needs to be highly tailored and modified?

7.

Do you lead a more private life and would feel more comfortable if yoga was brought to you?

8.

Are you ready to turn this practice into a reliable source of grounding and

self-care?

9.

Do you have a packed schedule and need the yoga practice to fit into your preferred slots?

You and i would be a good fit if you

Are done with the excuses and ready to take the reigns of your health, both physical and mental;

Have zero time to waste and want to get the most out of your financial investment;

 

Are willing to engage in a relationship which will hold you accountable for your commitment to yourself;

 

Are ready to learn which yoga tools are most beneficial to you and how to use them to achieve your goals;

Want to establish a practice from the comfort of your home at a time that works best with your schedule.

 

what's your story?

Not sure if this is what you're looking for and prefer to talk first?

 

I offer new clients to check in for a complimentary 15 minute call,

100% commitment free.

We'll discuss your current needs and goals and I will come up with a rough plan for our first session. That way you get EXACTLY what you need, right from the start.

 

Rest assured that all information you share with me will be kept strictly confidential.

 

So, how can I help you?

ABOUT

 

I felt so deeply relieved and relaxed after my first yoga class I could barely get off the floor.

 

I had just said goodbye to my boyfriend who was going to live in another country. I thought I was pretty good at keeping my cool about this major life change, but that yoga class totally exposed the truth simmering underneath.

 

A dear friend invited me to attend her yoga class. Without major expectations, I decided to go. Towards the end, she guided the group through a beautiful visualization. Suddenly, I felt my heart beating faster, the chest expanding, my throat gripping... tears down my face. What was THAT all about?

The invincible wonder woman inside me was caught completely off guard.

The mask fell off, giving space to vulnerability, sadness and overwhelm. I don't usually connect with that part of myself. Do you?

 

In that moment of unexpected surrender, I remember vividly wanting to remain very, very still.

It was that quality of unwavering inner stillness - no matter what I'm going through - I became interested in recreating that in my everyday life.

 

Do you tend to be over-scheduled, mentally scattered and physically tired? Do you walk through life feeling like a chicken with her head cut off? It doesn't have to be like that.

 

After over 8 years teaching yoga, I've realized what I am meant to do in this planet: help people be more balanced and centered in their lives, one breath at a time.

I look forward to getting to know you, what drives you nuts and what makes you tick. 

We're all in this journey together.

Warmly, Raquel
