Private Sessions Available 
DSC_5044_4I offer private sessions to students who have a specific needs, or therapeutic inquiry. Some of my clients simply want to better understand certain actions or asanas in their yoga practice. Others are recovering from trauma, injury, or illness. Others may not feel comfortable in a group class but want to learn yoga. I have helped students use yoga to understand their body/mind in the context of their condition, learn how they need to adjust their practice to be able to take care of themselves better in group classes, develop specific, simple practices to do at home in order to affect positive change, and to move in the direction of healing.

Issues we can address include pelvic floor issues such as chronic gripping, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, prolapse, and vulvodynia; birth preparation/ postpartum support, sacroiliac pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, knee, shoulder, or neck issues, digestive problems, headaches, thyroid 1525037_920793204616853_4428550190901680229_nimbalance, adrenal fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and more. If you have any questions about working privately, please feel free to contact me (text or call) at 505 244 0570, averyasana@gmail.com (which I check most frequently). Yoga with Avery is not intended as a substitute for medical advice, or as an alternative treatment to medical care. Yoga can, however, be a wonderful compliment to other therapies, and I am happy to discuss your needs with your doctor, chiropractor, physical therapist, or other care provider so that you can receive the best support possible.


Avery is a Prenatal Yoga Teacher through Lovelace Hospital’s Labor of Love Program.


Join me for two upcoming opportunities to explore Yoga and your Pelvic Floor!

In addition to my annual afternoon Yoga for Pelvic Floor workshop coming up Sept. 23, join me for a Yoga for Your Pelvic Floor 6 week class series Thursday nights Sept 28 – Nov 2, 2017 5:45-7:15pm. The workshop includes a cool slideshow and time to start to sense what is happening in your own body. The class series will explore this topic further, though different types of poses as well as discussion. Students can take both, or just one. You don’t have to have attended the workshop to come to the class series.

  1. I have a question about the Pelvic Floor workshop on May 5 before I register. I am 64 years old have a significant amount of post-surgical scar tissue in my lover abdomen and upper, inner right thigh and right glutes that makes it very difficult to do many yoga poses. I have worked for two years with Patti Lentz who uses a very modified therapeutic yoga-based physical therapy approach with me. But she did recommend the Pelvic Floor workshop for me and I just wondered if it would be worth it if many of the poses are outside my ability to do? I know I would benefit from the information but might have to sit out or greatly modify some of the poses and might require extra guidance as to how to adapt those. Thanks for letting me know.

    1. Hello Susan! Thanks for writing me. You are most welcome to join us on Sunday. Much of what we will be doing is exploring (in restorative and supported postures) how to sense these areas, which will be a unique experience for each person, depending on their own body and awareness. We will have a fun slide show, and a relaxation a part of the day as well. If you are familiar with how Patti works you may even know some of the poses we are doing. The pace will be slow, and inquisitive. You can always ask for how to back up a pose more, or simply sit out and observe if an exploration feels too challenging. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. You can contact me here or email me at averyasana@yahoo.com
