The Many Benefits of a Private Yoga Session

People love to come see me for private yoga classes in my beautiful well-equipped yurt studio in my garden in Santa Cruz. Individual sessions can be beneficial for many reasons. Here are just a few:

  • You get my undivided attention and focus on you and your development as a yoga student.
  • Private sessions are tailor-made to meet your particular needs and concerns, building on your strengths and addressing your weaknesses.
  • You can use privates to specifically work on mastering a pose you find challenging, such as shoulderstand, headstand or handstand.
  • People with particular back care concerns—like scoliosis—can benefit from special sequences and instruction.
  • People with injuries or conditions like low back pain, a knee replacement, or other physical limitations can use a private to ask questions, discover how yoga might help them, and experience poses first-hand.
  • If you are new, unsure or frightened, you get to experience the benefits of yoga in a private, safe, supportive environment.
  • If you feel you won’t fit in a regular class for any reason, you may prefer the personalized approach offered in a private session.
  • A private is a great place to establish a personalized sequence to practice at home. And if you already have an established home practice, you can come to a private so I can evaluate, modify, or help you further develop the sequences you do at home.
  • If you have a schedule that keeps you from attending a regular class, privates are a more flexible option.

What Happens When You Come In For a Private Session?

When you call me, I’ll talk to you about your reasons for wanting a private session so I can be prepared when you arrive.

Come to your session wearing comfortable, non-restrictive clothes that you can move in. I will then guide you through a sequence specially designed to fit your personal needs.

You can book one private or a series. Some people come to several; others prefer privates on an ongoing basis.

“I’ve been taking Iyengar yoga classes from Karyn for well over ten years. Because of yoga, I’ve continued to have the strength and flexibility to enjoy a variety of sports and outside activities. Karyn’s methods have been the reason I’ve chosen to continue with her. She’s an excellent teacher.”
