Class Meditation


Ever wanted to try yoga but were nervous about going to a class? Afraid you wouldn’t know what to do? How you would feel? What to wear? These are all common concerns and I am here to help!

Originally, yoga was taught by one teacher to just one student. The teacher understood the importance of teaching an individual yoga experience for each student, to meet their own needs. Today, the same still occurs. A private sessions allows the teacher to assess and individualise the student’s class, the teacher is allowed a more intimate view of the student’s practice, whether that be a completely new one or one that has been going for years. The teacher and student work together to experience the benefits of yoga in a personal way and this allows the student and the teacher to address certain goals and areas that are individual to the student.

Why take a private class?

For new students
As a new student, you may be intimidated by the public classroom environment. Private classes allow teachers the opportunity to focus on you and make sure you are getting off to an appropriate start. Private yoga instruction can help you integrate into our public classes and help to build your confidence.

For more experienced students
Experienced students benefit from privates just as much as the newer student. You are able to have a deeper insight into specific postures or categories of postures that interest you; private yoga sessions are the perfect learning environment. Teachers can help you with the proper alignment, modifications and can also help you develop a home practice and or supplement your existing home practice. Private yoga classes can also give the experienced student time to learn about other aspects of interest, such as meditation and breathing practices.
