Private Yoga Sessions

Yoga privates can work in a number of different ways.

A single or occasional session can support your regular, on-going practice and accelerate your progress. You’ll receive an abundance of direction designed to integrate over time.

Regular, ongoing private sessions via zoom and/or in person work well for a more tailored, efficient practice that fits your schedule.

Semi-privates are an option as well, share the cost and work with just a small cohort for plenty of individualized attention.

Have another vision for how you’d like to receive private training? Let me know!


Zoomed privates: $60/hr or $35 for 30 minutes

In-person sessions: $150/75 minutes

Learn How to Massage Using Your Feet!

Barefoot Shiatsu is an efficient, effective method of therapeutic massage. It is satisfying to both receive and to give! The techniques are inherently ergonomic and, over time, can improve the practitioners’ leg strength, balance, breath, rhythm, coordination, sensitivity, responsiveness and understanding of the body.

To become a proficient practitioner, a great deal of practice is required. Periodic tutorials combined with independent practice on ‘volunteer clients’ is a great way to gain proficiency.

Leah has been teaching Barefoot Shiatsu since 2006 in both group and private settings. Private tutorials do require a third person to act as ‘the client’. A manual is provided for students to keep. It helps the student recall the techniques but does not qualify as a standalone teaching source.

Rates and other information for tutorials are the same as for bodywork sessions and can be found on either Oakland or Sierra City pages.

Interested in attending a Barefoot Shiatsu workshop-retreat in Sierra City? Let Leah know! When there’s a sufficient number of interested students she’ll schedule it!
