Beginning in January, Healing Foundations' resident Yogi began offering personalized Yoga instruction on an appointment basis. Jennifer Gaspers has been leading small group Yoga classes at Healing Foundations for almost six years, but really saw the need for a more individualized experience.
"I came to yoga first for relief from a high stress job, and then after my second car accident— to help me regain flexibility and build strength. I found a patient instructor willing to help me modify poses until I got stronger, and more confident. That began my road to recovery, but I had no idea it would lead to so much more."
"It's about moving with your breath, and the meditative bond that's created between the mind and body. When I discovered that, that's when my healing happened."
Sixteen years later, Jennifer became a certified Yoga instructor herself. "Yoga is not about contorting your body or standing on your head once a week. Yoga is about the process of getting into a pose and how you feel in that pose. It's about moving with your breath, and the meditative bond that's created between the mind and body. When I discovered that, that's when my healing happened."
"Many people enjoy the social aspect of group exercise classes, but some feel intimidated by being in a class where people of different skill levels are working together. One-on-one instruction not only allows me to give immediate feedback, but it also provides a supportive environment, where people feel like they can ask questions, and even struggle without judgement." Jennifer says this kind of instruction allows the focus to be more therapeutic, and geared toward an individual's specific needs.
