what's a private yoga lesson like?
Each private yoga session looks very different for everyone. Your specific goals and needs are always at the forefront of the practice, as well as traditional yoga teachings and postures or techniques that will support your body and personality. Private yoga differs from group practice in many ways, but the dialogue and feedback is what many students enjoy and find helpful.
I usually begin each practice by catching up, checking in with your body, emotions and energy level, so that we can create the most useful experience for you. From there, I'm able to suggest movement, themes, meditations, minute adjustments or modifications that support the feelings moving through you in the moment.
I spend a lot of time studying body language, watching the way your breath moves and noticing patterns within your body and energy. We use this information to enhance your practice. We focus a lot on grasping the basics, such as strong breathing technique, general alignment stacking and learning how to balance effort and ease within the postures. Sometimes, as needed, we might study yoga philosophy and how it relates to your life or work through a specific issue that you're having that day. There's a lot of cross-over between life-coaching and private yoga sessions.

Private coaching Pricing:
With a few exceptions, I usually share sessions in packs of five. Over the years, I have found five to be the ‘magic number’ between myself and my students that creates a level of commitment on both sides and gives you the opportunity to begin to experience valuable changes.
