Learn to use yoga as a self help tool.
“Your Personal Yoga Instructor for Wellness”

 Johnnie Lou Getz


Private  Yoga classes are for individuals that are looking to explore a custom  yoga practice, enhance their yoga awareness and learn to use yoga in their every day life.  No prior yoga experience is necessary.  The assisted yoga approach to teaching  yoga guides each person in developing a practice that is healing  and relevant tohis or her own body and life experience. Private lessons provide a setting  in which your individuality can be completely addressed. Yoga postures and breathing exercises are selectively chosen and developed to meet  your specific needs. Learning and practicing postures and breathing exercises at  your own pace and within your own range is the most effective way to realize the benefits of yoga. Attentively guided by verbal instruction, imagery, demonstration, and hands-on direction,  you will explore yoga in a way that is practical and beneficial. Long held bodily tensions and pain shift and along with symptomatic release you may experience deep relaxation, mental clarity, a clearer sense of purpose, and change on a life-level.  The result is powerful.  A  new and empowered life. Through an approach that is gradual and gentle, experience how the subtle power of yoga works with all aspects of your being — physical, psychological, and spiritual. Rediscover and enjoy your natural strength, suppleness, vigor, and health through yoga developed specifically  for you. The benefits of a private yoga class include working with a certified practitioner in various healing modalities including  yoga, shiatsu, reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy,  developing a practice relevant to your own body and life experience. Learn yoga that is healing  for you with postures and alignment that fits your body.

What is Reiki






Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “Universal Life Force Energy”. A Reiki treatment is a simple hands-on relaxation therapy that helps to balance the mind, body and spirit.  Through the use of soothing hands laid on or above a person’s chakras or energy centers, the physical body is able to relax and de-stress which, in turn, allows the mind and the emotions to calm as well.


There are seven main energy centers located throughout the body.  These centers called chakras (a Sanskrit word meaning wheel) are aligned with the body’s major organs and endocrine glands.  Ideally, these chakras are balanced and functioning at an optimal level allowing us to feel relaxed, healthy and happy.  However, as we experience life’s inevitable stresses, our body stores our reactions to these daily events and, unless we find ways to release this negative energy, we eventually succumb to anxiety and/or illness.


Reiki is one of the ways we can release pent-up negative energy and bring our chakras back into balance. Reiki is a gift you give yourself to promote health and well-being.


Reiki can be sent over a long distance. You can request a Reiki treatment by e-mail. Experience the wonderful balance and relaxation that comes with aDistance Reiki session today!

Vision and Life’s Mission

Owning the Future through Dreams and VisionVision and Intuition Chakra Photograph by Robert A Getz

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”. Dreams are born of hopes and desires while vision comes from foresight and passion. It is essential to have both because they work together in the manifestation of personal purpose and potential.

What is Kripalu YogaDance – formerly Kripalu Danskinetics?


Kripalu YogaDance ® is a yoga and dance based fitness experience that uses music and movement to bring you to life, elevate your heart rate, lower your inhibitions, and connect you to your body with joy and acceptance.  Let your soul soar to an electric mix  of music from around the world that simply begs your body to move from pulsating primal rhythms and funky, rocking beats to soothing, meditative flows. 

Move with the joy of a child, freed from worrying about “getting it right”, by tapping the body’s natural rhythms and responsiveness to music. There are no complicated steps to master, just movement to explore with the guidance of a  certified instructor in a safe and supportive environment. In no time at all, you’ll find yourself moving with more freedom and less self-consciousness. So much fun, you’ll forget you’re getting a workout. Each class ends with a deep and refreshing  period of relaxation. Fun, fitness, and stress relief- all rolled into one.

The regular practice of  YogaDance strengthens and tones the body, increasing vitality, stamina, and flexibility. It promotes self-revelation, deep relaxation, and the opportunity to consciously reconnect  body, mind and spirit. 

Movement of the chakras can open energy flows, create positive  thought patterns  and heal the inner self.
