“The restraint of the modifications of the mind-stuff is Yoga.”
Forms of yoga practice have been around for thousands of
years and ancient traditions have had widespread influence
on bodywork modalities aimed at improving health and
wellness. Even Dr. Rolf herself found some inspiration for
her system of soft tissue manipulation through yoga based
movements and philosophical concepts. It's no wonder why
the west has seen a tremendous increase in access to all sorts
of yoga practices through studios, teachers, workshops, and
more. The mindfulness encouraged in yoga practice is seen
as complimentary to the work done in Rolfing. A whole
branch of study in Rolfing known as Rolf Movement explores
how to embody changes made during sessions through
movement education and patterning. It is similar to an
individualized yoga practice in many respects. These are
reasons why Lowcountry Rolfing also offers opportunities to
learn movements and ideas that will compose a balanced yoga
What is a yoga session like?
Yoga sessions may be done in a private setting such as a home or office. Clients are also able to book small group classes that may be done in any accessible location. They typically involve 60 minutes of a flow of movements selected by the instructor based on an individual's needs and interests. Props and bolsters are provided and clients are encouraged to bring their own equipment such as mats, blocks, and straps; if they have them. Clients will be guided through a session that ends with a 5-15 minute meditation. During this time they may also be coached on how to perform certain poses or movements on their own when need be. Clients are encouraged to drink at least 16oz of water no later than an hour before activity and 16oz more after the session. Proper fuel and hydration is essential to get the most out of the practice and avoid injuries resulting from lack of calories and fluids.
How much are sessions?
A 75 minute one on one session cost $100.00. Split the cost with a group of 2-6 people for a private yoga class.
