Stress Management Support

When was the last time you felt inspired and fully alive?  Have the last few months or years been challenging? Do you not feel quite right, as if you aren’t truly living your life?  On a scale of 1 to 10 is your stress level closer to a 10? Are you overloaded with information?

After an initial assessment,  together we will design an individualized stress management plan using some or all of the following techniques:  worksheets, meditation, yoga nidra (yogic sleep), restorative yoga, breathwork and yoga techniques.

Managing your stress can help with lowering blood pressure, increasing your energy, enhancing your ability to sleep and strengthening your immune system.

Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy is a technique that utilizes the ancient science of yoga…postures, breathwork, and meditation combined with bio-psycho-social models of behavior change and wellness. The practice is tailored to the individual clients’ needs. Yoga Therapy places equal emphasis on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions of being. It is for anyone and any body with any physical or emotional condition.

“Clients are usually not coming to learn yoga, but to get help with or relief from some symptom or health condition that is troubling them. In most cases, the instruction focuses on their condition and how the yoga techniques can help them feel better or improve their function, rather than on the techniques or methods of yoga practice.”

Private Yoga, Meditation and Breathwork

Private yoga lessons in Santa Fe, NM or online are perfect for the beginner wanting to learn the basics before moving into a group yoga class or the seasoned student looking to dive a little deeper or work on personal interests, concerns or goals.  The private lesson allows the student and teacher to work toward the individuals goals.

Thai Yoga Massage

Thai Yoga Therapy is a unique and powerful system of Yoga, which combines rhythmic movement, acu-pressure, asanas (Yogic stretching exercises), gentle twisting, energy work and meditation. Thai Yoga Therapy stimulates and balances the flow of energy through the body’s Sen channels (energy lines). By opening the areas which are blocked, Thai Yoga Therapy brings the person into balance for health and well-being. Thai Yoga Therapy brings a release of stress and tension, an increase in aliveness and deepens the connection between mind, body and spirit in both the giver and receiver.

The practice is performed on a mat on the floor with the recipient wearing loose, comfortable clothing. This form of therapy leaves the client feeling energized but relaxed at the same time.

What people are saying about working with Jacci

I have been practicing yoga with Jacci Gruninger for almost 10 years and have known her as her student, her friend, and the owner of a yoga studio where she taught classes.  Jacci’s teaching comes straight from the heart and is communicated to her students in a clear, easy to understand flow of instruction and adjustments. She lives her yoga and brings a wealth of experience and an ease to her teaching that makes each class a joyful adventure.  She creates a safe space for her students to experience the yoga that best suits their circumstances, while providing opportunities to grow and expand their practice. Jacci’s yoga helped me to heal from heart surgery – spiritually and mentally as well as a physically. I am grateful for the wisdom and insight she brings to the mat and look forward to every opportunity to practice with her.  – David McDonald

Yoga with Jacci has been such a pleasure, a relief, and an inspiration.

Jacci has a warm, caring manner and is always aware on my individual needs and physical issues.  For years, every yoga class I tried left my back in bad shape, but with Jacci each session makes my back feel stronger and more supple. For the first time in years I’m inspired to do yoga on a regular basis.  – Jane McIntosh

A year and a half ago, I walked into my first yoga class merely to de- stress and stretch tight muscles.  Little did I know what awaited me. Under Jacci’s skillful and compassionate guidance, I have developed not only a stronger and more disciplined body but also an evolving integration of mind and spirit.   My practice sustains me. It continues to grow me. Jacci brings to bear in each class the strengths of an impressive formal background but it is her seamless blending of technique and intuitive insight that makes her a uniquely gifted master teacher.  Sharon, NM

Jacci was my very first yoga instructor.  I immediately fell in love with yoga and expect to always have it as part of my life.  Jacci’s voice has such a calming affect and when she guides me through pranayama, I’m able to completely block out my surroundings and really focus on me, my mind and my body.  My yoga practice has made me physically stronger and I have become much more mellow. I’ve had several instructors since Jacci, but none compare. Dona, MD
