Introduction: ** Working ONLINE. Let's collaborate no matter where you are. In life, we all run into walls. Chronic pain or Gi issues. Debilitating self-criticism or self-doubt. Unhealthy patterns when dealing with pain, grief or uncertainty. For many of us, we come to believe that we just have to live with these walls. Just learn how to manage them and keep pushing. I want to help you carve out a different path: one where you feel empowered to face the walls, discover the roots of why they are there, and then start to implement new body, brain and life patterns that are truly aligned for you. I work with the FULL YOU in this exploration: BODY - helping you find physical practices that move you towards freedom in your body and counter the tendencies that you're wanting to soften. BRAIN - helping you find the meditation and mindfulness practices that guide you deeper within, promoting space, introspection, insight and purpose. LIFE - we work together on identifying the small adjustments you can start making in your day-to-day that will add up to the life experience you are yearning for. ** I want to make sure we're the right fit. I offer free 15-minute consultations to all potential clients so I can better understand your needs and you can better understand my approach. ** Hablo español.

Private Yoga Instruction

If you are looking to have an amazing experience, Ligia is the way to go. I am new to Yoga and was really hesitant due to my lack of flexibility and nimbleness. I had a friend who kept bothering me to try it and I am glad that I did. I am a Director at a non profit and although I absolutely love my job, my stress tends to show up in my body. Ligia helped work through my tense areas. Very soothing voice and clear instructions that were easy to do! Not what I thought at all!

“Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” Ruth Bader Ginsberg. I met Ligia in May of 2019 when I walked into St. Petersburg Yoga for the first time.I was depleted physically, emotionally, and mentally, exhausted from overworking and the deaths of my father and a close friend. I was filled with grief, anger, resentment, and regret. I intended the practice to be a means to escape the pain through avoidance, not transformation. I didn’t even know what yoga was. Ligia had to build me from the ground up. The thing I value most about Ligia is her dedication to each student as an individual, even when we’re in a group setting. She knows me because she listens not only to the things I share verbally and through email, but also to the silences. She recognizes patterns often--even before I do. For example, when my father died, I was sad, but equally angry. I was overwhelmed by his death, but as an overdoer, I was already on overload. I started throwing everything away. I told her I was overwhelmed with “stuff,” and it had to go. She gently nudged me in a more appropriate direction by reminding me that I was overwhelmed in all areas of my life. I was focused on the one that caused the most pain, taking the “out of sight, out of mind” approach. One year later, I was sad and angry when my husband deployed, and I repeated the pattern, discarding his and our things. I mentioned I had “two days to get rid of everything” in a joking way during class, not sharing that I was sad and angry. In fact, I pretended it was nice to be alone. Ligia reminded me of my pattern of “out of sight, out of mind.” Again, she nudged me gently, and we began again. Ligia creates a warm environment, whether one-on-one or in a group. I never feel judged, and she’s helped me with judgement of self and others. In weekly meetings and workshops, I’ve learned to act with intention, specifically with communication and difficult conversations when I hold myself accountable and don't get the same in return. I recognize when my emotions are heightened and I’m reacting to pain. I’ve learned how to respond to my own resistance to change. Through self awareness, I’m more compassionate to myself and others. I also recognize edge and when it's time to reset my gauges. Ligia, for me, is as valuable as my mat. Through her, I’m taking one step at a time toward real change.

Contacted Ligia with a short notice for a group event coming up in just a few days and she was able to accommodate without any issues. She answered all my questions and was in constant communication throughout the process. Her delivery style was very professional and she adapted to exactly what we were looking for. She was very kind, compassionate and informative. She is my go-to Yogi in the area. Will continue to work with her for any future sessions. Thank you Ligia!

Despite being a long time yoga practitioner, I always benefit from ongoing learning. Yoga can support all ages (I am in my 70's), physical conditions, and paths. BUT, I have to admit I was not expecting how Ligia weaves yoga and life together in a manner so easy to understand. Ligia's Yogi Talks and workshops, as well as her online classes, have helped me realize new ways my physical practice and yoga concepts connect with my everyday life during this time of extremely radical changes. In Yogi Talks, to guide our yoga exploration, Ligia uses discussion and simple exercises. She thoughtfully helps us brings our individual yoga journeys together to explore the relationships among each of our journeys. Hesitant about the transition to online asana classes, I found it smooth with Ligia's easy to follow online classes. She addresses the needs of beginners AND experienced practitioners, thoroughly covering each posture meeting each experience level's needs. Her teaching style is easy going while conveying a deep understanding of authentic yoga including meditation practices. Ligia helps me to see new possibilities for joining my mat experience to real life -- a daily blessing! Thank you, Ligia!

Private Yoga Instruction

I am a woman in my 60s. Overall in good health,but have been experiencing back pain,hip discomfort and neck/shoulder discomfort for 15 years. I have scoliosis and osteoporosis. My philosopy has always been to not complain and just deal with it. In my first session Ligia gave me information about what was going on in my body and with my pain that I could actually understand. She explained why certain movements are helpful and others aren’t.We talked about my daily power-walking and how it might be impacting my pain. I was dreading any meditation talk.but just naturally through the session she called attention to certain habits-I have to get it just right,I overdo-and how those relate to tension and pain. After the first session,I am looking forward to more.

Luz, what a pleasure getting to know you. I am truly excited about what our work together will bring. Thank you for this review!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    One-hour coaching session: $70 Ten sessions: $650 ($50 savings!) I offer a free 15-minute consultation to all potential clients to discuss your needs, my services and answer any initial questions you might have. Each client is different. The coaching plan adapts to your particular needs and realities. Some clients meet with me twice per week, others once per week, others once per month. We will work together on creating a coaching plan that is manageable, but still keeps you on track with your intentions and goals.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Because there is no one-size fits-all formula for wellness, the first step is clearly identifying the stuff that needs attention in your life right now - back pain; recovering from an injury; chronic stress or anxiety; facing a big change like retirement, childbirth or divorce; or trying to get better sleep are just some examples. We set ourselves up for success when our coaching plan is targeted and when we have the confidence to start with the big stuff first. From there, we start putting together a portfolio of most potent therapeutic practices for you. Depending on the issues that we're focusing on, there may be a combination of physical/movement practices, mindfulness exercises, attention training exercises, breathing techniques, mantra training, self-discovery exercises, and other practical tools for creating new, healthier brain pathways. During our sessions, we unpack these practices and exercises in detail - how they can be beneficial and what they look like in practice. We work through the roadblocks, they ways in which our brain tends to resist new ways of perceiving and responding. Together, we assess progress and we keep developing the coaching plan to meet your changing needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychobiology. My Master's degree is in Public Health. I am also an RYT 500 Yoga Alliance Registered Instructor.
