Yoga is most often taught in a group setting, but for many, private instruction is an option for learning that is most optimal. There are many reasons people have for having one-on-one yoga sessions. Here are a few:
REHABILITATION: The student has an injury or is in rehabilitation for an injury, and wants to learn how to strengthen or remediate an injury. The student is provided with a healing sequence of poses and practice to facilitate recovery and greater range of motion.
DEEPENING ONE'S PERSONAL PRACTICE: Many students have particular questions about specific poses, actions, philosophy, meditation, lifestyle support or teaching guidance. Personalized questions are welcomed in these sessions.
ADAPTIVE YOGA: Personalized sessions are extremely helpful for those students who have physical limitation or challenges like those with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, asthma, scoliosis, fibromyalgia or other conditions.
CONVENIENCE AND PRIVACY: Many students feel more at ease and supportive by learning yoga in the comfort of their own home or in a one-on-one setting. In addition, if classes don't meet at a time that works for the student, one-on-one sessions can be arranged to best accommodate the student's schedule.
LOCATION: Many students don’t live in the same area as my group classes, and travel to study together in person is a challenge. For this situation, I offer private instruction via Skype or FaceTime.
