Private Instruction

Traditionally, yoga was taught one-on-one based on the specific needs of the student and their individual body. Private instruction is an excellent way to begin your yoga practice or to deepen your existing practice, letting you discover things that might be overlooked in a larger class experience. It is an ideal setting to explore and focus on your needs. One-on-one attention ensures that you are mindfully aware of the poses and in the proper alignment, taking into consideration any modifications due to injury or restriction of movement. 

The exact nature of private instruction will vary depending on the needs and personal goals of each student but the result remains the same: to improve personal health and well-being specific to your physical and emotional state. Instruction may target key areas where balance, strength and mobility can be improved and self-confidence can build into perhaps joining a class setting or creating and deepening your own private practice.
