Here are four benefits that my students have had taking private yoga lessons with me.
1) It’s a break from work that’s all on your time!
Although taking a group yoga lesson also provides you a break from work, the benefit of a private is that it’s on your time schedule. We work together to find the best time for your lesson. As opposed to you having to come to the studio at a specific, inflexible time, privates can be delayed and moved if you’re running late or something comes up.
2) The lesson is all about you.
Private lessons are a wonderful time to delve deeply into your personal experience during yoga. Maybe you’ve always had a question about a pose or want to focus on a particular aspect of your life or body. We can explore that together. One day you might like a strong, powerful lesson to strengthen muscles and the other a really relaxing, stress-relieving lesson. Let me know and you got it!
3) Honestly, it’s a very traditional way to study yoga.
In the first part of the twentieth century, two of the great yoga masters who taught westerners yoga (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and B.K.S. Iyengar) were taking “private” lessons with their guruji, T. Krishnamacharya. We should all be so lucky as to follow in their footsteps!
4) It’s an investment into your health and well-being.
Germans have a saying “He or she who buys cheap, buys twice”. Well, sometimes you’ll just take a group yoga lesson, no harm in that but taking private lessons are an investment into health and well-being in more ways than one. For one, you’re definitely going to be committed to learning in the lesson. Secondly, it’s a great introduction to home practice. Thirdly, we development a relationship based on giving you a healthy, happy body and that often keeps people motivated to keep training the body. Plus–new friend!
