Regular price Sale price £24.99
One-to-one yoga teaching is a great way to ensure that every client is practicing yoga safely while reducing risks that may cause them unintentional harm. Through the process of co-creation, yoga teachers can move beyond the development of one-time class practices into the development of tailored yoga practice programs that can truly meet their clients where they are and take them where they want to go - on and off of the mat.

Blending the science of shared decision-making with an evidence-informed approach to health intervention design, this book offers yoga teachers and other movement professionals a simple, systemic and strategic process for co-creating a yoga practice program on and off the mat. Interviewing, assessment, and choreography strategies provide a wealth of options for better understanding clients' current needs and strengths and future possibilities. Behavior and lifestyle change and strategic planning processes offer a step-by-step method for developing a kosha-based practice program that keeps clients on track to their optimal health, wellness and well-being.

Press Reviews

  • Dr. Dan Mikeska, DHSc

    After decades of yoga being presented as a mystical form of exercise, Dr Carmack provides a refreshing take by combining the best of yoga with health science, and mainstream business and fitness protocols to provide a path for yoga teachers to create evidence-informed programs based on individual needs.
  • Stephanie Adams, SAYF Founder, Jaya Yoga RYS Director, & 'Cancer and Yoga' Author

    An incredible, comprehensive resource and training manual for yoga professionals looking to offer private yoga to clients in a way that truly connects with, and teaches to, the individual and his/her/their path. This book honors the yoga tradition and incorporates the many tools for healing, growth and embodiment yoga has gifted to us. I highly recommend it.
  • Rosangela “Rose” Silva, MBA, Yoga Therapist, Health and Wellness Coach, Sr. Mind-Body Intervention Specialist at MD Anderson Cancer Center

    One of the superpowers that Dr. Carmack has is the fact that she is able to take very complex topics and break them down in such an easy-to-understand and apply manner. In the Yoga for One book, yoga teachers, yoga trainers, yoga therapists, and allied health professionals will find a health promotion program that brings yoga literacy into the profession of delivering it. It is a masterpiece!
