Private Classes


Everyone is unique and general classes may not address what we specifically need due to our physical condition, mental and emotional needs, and age group.  Traditionally yoga was taught one on one. Private sessions are tailored to meet each individual's specific needs and goals, offering many techniques for a safe and in-depth yoga practice.   It allows time for detailed instruction, modifications, adjustments, and inquiry.  Classically, yoga is approached differently through the stages of our life.


Sessions may focus in the Vinyasa Krama system, Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Nidra and Lifestyle practices.  One may also have sessions focused on specific areas.
