Private Yoga Instruction
Many people have found private yoga instruction to be invaluable in developing a home practice. It's also an excellent way to learn to adapt common yoga postures taught in classes to your individual and specific needs. Private yoga sessions can include hands-on assists to help with alignment, deepening your practice with new postures, writing a personalized home practice plan, developing modifications for specific postures, and working with special needs. Indira is available for private yoga instruction at Pavones Yoga Center for $60 per hour. Group rates (groups of two to four) are $80 per hour.
Indira began her yoga journey literally in-utero: her mom tells stories of practicing the headstand up until the day before giving birth. As a child growing up in the lush jungles of the Osa Peninsula, she remembers practicing playful sun-salutations on the beach, and kicking up into handstands against any available palm-tree. After college, while working in Japan, her time at a Zen monastery awakened an urge to combine deep meditative mind states with conscious movement and breath. These explorations eventually brought her back to Costa Rica for further study of the yogic arts. After extensive training both in Costa Rica and throughout the United States, she accepted a position on faculty at the Nosara Yoga Institute; she has co-directed their Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Trainings with her soul-friend Tamika Schilbe-Keckler. Her first vinyasa-yoga DVD, Spirit Within Movement, was filmed on the gorgeous Pavones coastline and is dedicated, fittingly, to her mom.
Classes with Indira have been described as "divine," "heart-felt," and "like medicine." She understands yoga as a physical, mental, and emotional discipline that can help us to reach our maximum potential as evolving human beings.
