Do Orthodox Christians need their spiritual father to approve any changes in their prayers rules, or is that just a monastic thing?

Please ask your priest about any changes you wish to take regarding your prayer life.

It's a monastic thing*. Although it's certainly a good idea to consult with others (like your parish priest) who have more experience/training/etc.

*The exception is if you receive a particular prayer/prayer rule/etc during confession. In that case, yes, you need to speak with your confessor before changing it.

For it were better to suffer everything, rather than divide the Church of God. Even martyrdom for the sake of preventing division would not be less glorious than for refusing to worship idols. - St. Dionysius the Great

My priest's answer essentially agreed with witega's.
