Traditionally, yoga was taught one-on-one. 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.
If you are not comfortable with attending group classes, have a desire to work to deepen your practice and knowledge of yoga (postures and breathing exercises,) or if you desire a setting in which your individuality can be completely addressed, private lessons may be ideal for you. Private lessons are a great way to quickly learn the foundations for this life-changing practice, and are also a great compliment to group lessons. Private lessons are usually an hour in length, and the focus is based on the student’s topics of interest.
Attentively guided by verbal instruction, imagery, demonstration, and hands-on direction, you will explore yoga in a way that is practical and beneficial. True strength, endurance, and range of motion are developed incrementally and gradually, not by force. Through an approach that is gradual and gentle, you will 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.
