The aim of Private yoga classes is to address your needs in an intimate environment and deal with very specific to you issues. This is a highly beneficial way to enter, maintain and progress into your practice whether it is for therapeutic purposes or simply enjoying the private time.
There are many reasons why people prefer private one-to-one yoga sessions – it could be heavy work load schedule that prevents you from attending set group times, need to look into a specific difficulty in your current practice, special needs that are difficult to address in a group environment, or simply needing some time to yourself. Whatever your reasons, a private yoga session will give you the comfortable space, personal attention and time to address your needs.
