Cultivating a healthy student-teacher relationship has historically been the fastest and most sustainable way to live a yogic life. Getting to know someone on a deeper level takes time and commitment. This is the essence of Sri Krishnamacharya’s teachings – to teach yoga for the individual, based on their needs and lifestyle.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
- Connection to the essence of the Yoga methodology
- An authentic examination into your personal practice – how you integrate the philosophy, mechanics, alignment and mental exercises to fully express Yoga
- A deep understanding of your habits, tendencies, needs, strengths and personality
- Tools to: reduce stress, increase strength, flexibility, manage change and prevent pain
- To advance your relaxation, creativity, physical and mental abilities
- Increased stamina, self-love, self-care, discipline and willpower
- Development of a home practice

We each have a distinctive mental, physical, and spiritual level that develops out of our thoughts, environment, behaviors and beliefs. This is why we need one-on-one instruction.
While we are all human, no two of us are so similar that we can be taught the same thing in the same way. Yoga is a personal journey into the creation of a healthy mind-body system, and the subtle shifts and transformations are taught to be observed in this personal manner. Personalized yoga is based on these specific needs, and is meant to be followed daily.
This is the traditional yoga philosophy of Sri T. Krishnamacharya, his son T.K.V. Desikachar, my teachers, Mark Whitwell and Leslie Kaminoff, and me.
“In this process, the student consults the teacher regularly and practices what is specifically designed for them, daily. The student provides feedback so that the practice can be polished and made more individually specific, as required…Yoga should always be adapted to the requirements, situations and goals of each individual, never the individual to fit the yoga.” – Mark Whitwell

Small Group Private Lessons
Have you ever had the thought that a yoga class would be even better if you were surrounded by all the people you like the most?
Small group private lessons are ideal for refreshing yourself and your loved ones in a more intimate setting. These are custom designed classes held at the location of your choice – a favorite home, yard, park, beach or studio. This is a great option for a birthday party, bachelorette party, sorority event, anniversary gift, holiday gift or event, or a team party.
Rates for Small Group Privates at the studio include a rental fee.
