Private Yoga

The focus of one-on-one sessions is driven by your need and includes adjustments and modifications to poses that you can use in classes and daily practice, tips to use in your daily life to improve misalignment and change bad habits, and a written daily practice designed specifically for you.

Great for students who are new to yoga and want to be sure they have an understanding of the basic postures and alignment; for students who are having trouble with a specific pose, whether advanced or basic; and for people who have unusual schedules and aren't able to fit Shine classes into their schedule
