e.g. foundation for beginners, posture correction, specific meditations, personal goals, or a special need you bring (physically or mentally).
No matter how many yoga classes you go to,
only this is individually for YOU.
Group yoga classes are great, but a private teacher deepens your practice in surprising ways. Whether new to the yoga game, needing rehabilitation from an injury, or just wanting to take your practice deeper, we open your mind to the beauty of one to one classes.
Is this for me?
Private yoga lessons offer you the ability to focus on personal interests, concerns or goals. Instead of following along with the yoga instructor in a class setting, a private lesson allows you to follow personal goals for flexibility, strength or meditation. Getting in shape might be big for you, or motivation, stress reduction, and well-being.
If you want to work on physical limitations and their overcoming, a private class is also for you. Also if you feel intimidated by taking a class with lots of other people.
As a mature adult you might look for increasing flexibility, improve general toning, or increase relaxation.
You also might have working hours which make it difficult for you to join a regular class:
Private lessons work around personal plans and scheduling conflicts. Taking lessons at any time of the day or night, depending on work and/or social obligations, allows more flexibility in one’s yoga practice.
Gaining Initial Experience
Beginning yoga students can feel overwhelmed in typical class settings, particularly during the first few classes. It can seem difficult to keep up and personal flexibility might require a little work before it becomes easier to get into different poses. Don’t be discouraged if you have the feeling you will never make it to the level of your fellow students – it might make sense to find your personal pace and do some private classes to work to proper alignment and the right foundation first.
You will gain the confidence to join any class outside without feeling awkward.
There is nothing more precious than a teaching space, shared only by you and the teacher – all the attention is on you!
Your personal interest or goals will be addressed properly and the specific field in which you would like to progress, will be conquered quicker. You can build your practice faster due to the focus and fine-tuning compared to a group setting.
It also provides a safe space where you can be sure that all your special needs and injuries are carefully and compassionately being taken care of.
