Private Yoga Instruction

Whether you are an experienced yogi, a novice or simply investigating something new, private instruction is a valuable tool for developing your practice. The Movement Center offers private classes to help you develop a practice that is vital, appropriate to you and respectful of your body’s issues. Our experienced instructors are skilled in several different types of yoga and are available for one on one instruction, small group classes, and classes in the workplace.

 

Each private session is unique – some time spent in conversation, some time spent moving, and often some time will be spent working with the breath. These sessions are especially helpful in getting started with yoga, or if you have special requirements and would feel more at ease in a one on one environment.
If you have a well developed practice, you can use the sessions to explore more advanced postures. You are always encouraged to come prepared with a list of questions or goals.

 

Why should I come to Private Sessions?

  • You are interested in deepening your practice.
  • You are dealing with a health issue.
  • You would like to develop a home practice.
  • Group classes don’t suit you or your schedule.
  • You would like to focus work on a particular part of your practice that intrigues you.

 

Common Goals of Private Instruction
DEVELOPING A HOME PRACTICE: Practicing at home is a useful and cost effective supplement to group classes here at The Movement Center.  A home practice session typically includes evaluation of your personal goals, strategizing how to make your practice consistent, and a written practice plan. Home practice consultations are very effective when done in conjunction with group yoga classes.

 

REFINING YOUR PRACTICE: Group class students can benefit from personalized help to refine and energize their yoga practice. These classes typically include more individualized instruction about how to make adaptations and adjustments unique to your individual goals and body.

 

SPECIAL NEEDS INSTRUCTION: Our instructors work one on one with students who have a variety of needs. Past client issues include: stress management, sports training, managing menopausal symptoms, arthritis, and Multiple Sclerosis. The Movement Center private instructors also work with individuals with neck, back, and other acute and chronic physical injuries. Special needs instruction is best when done in a series of at least 3 sessions.
