Private Training – Yoga for Sports Mobility

Private Training – Breathe Better. Move Better. Feel Better.

Based on her premise that yoga is not “one size fits all,” as a certified strength & conditioning coach with a wide range of education and credentials in movement modalities, Dana’s Private Training sessions are much more than merely yoga instruction in a private setting. Dana’s Radius Yoga Conditioning (RYC) is a yoga-based mobility and mind-body training style designed specifically to help people breathe, move and feel better in their bodies in ways that enhance their performance and decrease injury. Dana has developed a proprietary Functional Mobility and Breathing Assessment that uses yoga-based movements to specifically identify current range of motion in all joints, areas of imbalance in stability and mobility, dysfunctional movement patterns, deficiencies in breathing biomechanics and potential for injury. Using the assessment results, data obtained from the client (and his/her coaches, trainers, doctors, etc., if applicable), and an understanding of the client’s goals, Dana creates an extensive report that serves as the foundation for program design.

Over the course of working with each client, their program evolves to include progressions and modifications necessary to correct dysfunctional movement patterns, avoid injury, and help them reach their personal goals. Dana’s unique approach to private yoga for sports training ensures optimum individualized benefits–empowering her clients to use yoga as a means for conditioning their bodies and minds to meet the demands of their sports and lives.  Also refer to the Yoga for Sports Programs page and/or the Yoga for Youth Sports Programs page as well as the featured page for your sport from the Yoga for Sports drop-down menu for even more information on RYC’s specific application to your sport.

Ideally, the first session is comprised of the comprehensive assessment with time to discuss any concerns noted on the questionnaire portion of the New Client Forms (a password to download the forms will be provided so they can be submitted prior to the first session). The assessment is generally conducted in person but can also be done via Skype/Facetime for long-distance clients.  Subsequent sessions include fully customized sequences, incorporating individualized elements of yoga based on the assessment results and the client’s needs and interests–which could include, but are not limited to, corrective exercise, muscular function, joint mobility/stability training, core integration, restorative/therapeutic work, breathing techniques, meditation, advanced exercises, etc. Sessions are conducted in person, online and/or in conjunction with custom video programs.  Note: Dana’s Elite Private Clients have access to the “Private Client Portal,” where they can download their password-protected program files.  Radius Yoga Conditioning is based in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida but Dana conducts private training throughout North America, as well as online sessions throughout the world. Appropriate technology is required for online sessions to ensure quality. Reasonable travel fees apply to travel outside New Port Richey, FL. On-location private sessions are generally conducted at a studio, performance center, or the client’s training facility (facility-use fees are paid by the client). Length of private yoga sessions, after the initial assessment (which usually takes 30-60 minutes), range from 60 to 120 minutes, and frequency depends on client needs. Payment for sessions is required at the time of scheduling or in advance as part of a set of sessions. Prepaid 10-session and/or multi-session & video package discounts are available, as well as two-person rates. Contact Dana for pricing.
