Private Yoga with Barbra

Far from what is witnessed in one-size-fits-all group classes, in a one-on-one session you will experience practices tailored just for you. Skillful attention is paid and delivered to support you wherever you are, and for what you most need. As a private client you will benefit from take home practices and homework to further expand what is explored during sessions.

  •  Private Yoga options may include asana, pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, and/or Yoga Mindset Coaching sessions (YMC). My fee is $150 an hour, though as making my work accessible is important to me, we can talk about a sliding scale. I ask for a minimum of three sessions within three months. Sessions of five or more will have the most deep seated and longstanding benefits. Many of my clients then move forward for either regularly scheduled sessions or periodic "tune-ups."

  • Yoga Mindset Coaching (YMC) sessions are 75-90 minutes, pricing as above.

Yoga Mindset Coaching

After 20 years of teaching public and private yoga, Barbra Brady is focusing more and more on working one-on-one with clients. To deepen the scope of working one-on-one, she is training in Yoga Mindset Coaching (YMC), a client-centered approach which brings the yoga "mindset" into the field of coaching. 


A YMC session begins with checking in with the client--How are things going for you today? What seems to be active? Let's say the client shares that they are overwhelmed with everything they have to do. After reflective listening, the coach reflects the client's words back to them, and asks the client to consider the possibility that they are not completely in overwhelm, but a part of them is, and that part is just trying to do its job of taking care of us. This is based on Internal Family Systems (IFS) in the field of psychology, and "Parts Work." IFS believes that everything that causes us to react in our life is a field outside of us, and does not define us. 


The coach facilitates the client seeing from the vantage point of the seer of the field, the one who, in yoga terminology is the witness. In other words, the coach helps the client let go of defining themselves by what are simply limiting parts of their personality that are asking for help.


Here's where the private yoga comes in, and takes the session well beyond what is possible in a public yoga class. Based on which "parts" of the client are presently active, a yoga/pranayama/meditation session is designed that will bring balance to the client. 


Above all, the YMC coach listens with curiosity, acceptance, and compassion to help the client experience themselves as whole, balanced, and completely capable of living with all parts of themselves while their Self is always present as their true guide.

  • Yoga Mindset Coaching (YMC) sessions are 75-90 minutes on a sliding scale of $100-$150 per hour, minimum of three sessions.
