Benefits of Private Yoga Lessons

Endorsed by http://www.hanaqpranayoga.com

Although yoga classes have grown in popularity over the years, some individuals may find that private lessons are more appealing. Unlike basic classes, private lessons are a one on one experience with an instructor. Private lessons can bring about improvements to one’s mental and physical health and help one achieve personal yoga goals.

Beginning yoga students cFeatured imagean feel overwhelmed in typical class settings, particularly during the first few classes. It can seem difficult to keep up and personal flexibility might require a little work before it becomes easier to get into different poses.

Beginners can avoid feeling overwhelmed and uncomfortable by taking private lessons to get started. A private yoga teacher shows each move personally and can help improve form immediately, which makes it easier to get started.

Focusing on Personal Goals

Private yoga lessons also offer students the ability to focus on personal interests, concerns or goals. Instead of following along with the yoga teacher in a class setting, a private lesson allows an individual to set specific goals and plans, such as personal goals for flexibility, strength or meditation.
A teacher teaching in a private setting takes the information about the yoga practitioner’s goals and creates a personalized routine based on the information.

Creating a Personalized Schedule

Although the experience itself and goal planning are important, making the time to practice is a vital element of yoga. If it’s not possible to get to a class, then joining a class is not the best choice. In such an instance, a private lesson can accommodate even the most hectic of schedules.
Private lessons work around personal plans and scheduling conflicts. Taking lessons at any time of the day or night, depending on work and/or social obligations, allows more flexibility in one’s yoga practice.

Overcoming Health Concerns

Injuries and health concerns can make a normal yoga class impractical for some participants. A yoga teacher teaching several students at one time cannot focus on individual needs or ensure that the poses will not further injure or strain a particular person. Furthermore, health concerns like pregnancy, diabetes or heart disease may require special alterations to one’s yoga practice.
When health concerns are a potential issue, it is best to have a private yoga lesson. The teacher can work around the problem and avoid further complications.

Working on In-Depth Practice

Although beginners can benefit from private lessons to gain confidence and learn safe practices, private lessons also are beneficial for advanced practitioners. Private instruction can allow one to take their yoga practice to the next level. Advanced classes, in a group setting, might not offer the level of challenge and planning that is required for more advanced practitioners.

It is beneficial to work with a private yoga instructor. In many cases, it will result in better skills, a greater level of confidence and fewer complications. Likewise, private yoga lessons may be the right approach to getting started or taking one’s yoga practice to the next level.

  1. I just finished one of sequences that I got from one of my private sessions with Lorena, and wow! I remember all her instructions and what to look and feel for while doing some asanas.
    I cannot thank you enough Lorena.
    I have lupus and reumathoid arthritis. And the sessions where targeted to meet my “many” requirements in modifications , specially for those days (times), where my body is not doing so well because of the autoimmune diseases.
    Thanks again!
