Private one-to-one Yoga

Private classes are suitable for beginners, anyone who feels uncomfortable or unsure about attending a group class, and for more advanced students who would like help to develop their yoga practice.  Private classes are typically for individuals, couples or a small group of 2 or 3 friends or colleagues.

Centred on the Yoga Student

Individual Yoga tuition is tailored to your specific needs - health, flexibility, strength, experience and knowledge of yoga. It gives you the chance to learn at your own pace, proceeding as quickly or as slowly as you wish, with tailored individual lesson plans.

There is ample opportunity to ask questions and to get feedback on your progress as a yoga student. If you have any questions about what yoga poses might be good for you (and what might not be so good) do get in touch.

What to expect

I prepare a lesson outline specifically for you, based on our discussions or previous lessons, and provide a copy of this at the end. I come to your home or venue which will need to be a suitable space where you have enough room to move and stretch out. Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing – a T-shirt and tracksuit trousers or leggings are ideal - plus you may want an extra layer or two to put on during the final period of relaxation.

Each yoga lesson will build on the previous one: postures and practices already learned can be repeated (with variations) to fully integrate your learning experience, while new postures can be introduced gradually for a more rounded, varied practice and to maintain your interest.

Typical class

A typical yoga class will begin with a short relaxation incorporating a breathing practice, warm up exercises, followed by a variety of postures (asanas), and a final relaxation.  Mindfulness techniques are often taught as part of the relaxation or meditation aspect of the lesson.  I will fully explain and demonstrate all the practices, and assist and adjust your practice of the postures as necessary.
