Frequently Asked Questions
How long is each class?
Classes are about 60-min long.
How long do I have to use up my 3, 5 or 10-class packages?
Generally, you will want to meet with me every week until you use up your classes, in order to get the maximum benefit from consistency in your practice. However, there may be some weeks when you (or myself) will be sick or out of town -- we can accommodate for these circumstances.
Can my husband/wife, partner, teenager, or friend join me for my private lessons?
Yes! Please add $10 per person/per class to the fees above. We can accommodate up to two people total for private lessons. Three or more? See private group information.
How soon do I need to let you know whether I want to book a 3, 5, or 10 class pack?
You can decide and let me know after your free consultation. If you decide on a 3-pack, but decide later that you'd like a 5 or 10 class pack, you will be given the appropriate discount for that package.

WHY PRIVATE LESSONS?
I want to design a home practice but don't know where to start...
If you are interested starting a home practice but have no idea where to begin, private lessons are a wonderful way to help make yoga accessible at home. We work together to design a practice that meets your needs, broken up into sections so that whether you have 5 minutes or 20 minutes, your home practice feels accessible and helpful.
I want to learn more about a specific issue or injury...
Private lessons can make a significant difference in helping to understand your unique history, and bring healing to where you personally need it most. I have worked with students to understand chronic pain, rehabilitate the feet, develop a routine for hand inflammation, work with a shoulder injury, etc...
I wish I received more personalized attention in group classes...
Sometimes I hear students wishing they received more personalized attention during group classes because they don't feel like they are doing some of the poses correctly or aren't sure how it is supposed to feel in their bodies. Because of the demanding nature of group classes, yoga teachers are limited in the amount of time they can devote to individual students. Private lessons are a great way to get the attention you need, get your questions answered, and take your individualized knowledge right back into your group classes, increasing your understanding of poses and improving your practice.
I'm ready to go deeper in my practice...
At some point in your practice, you may feel like you are ready to go deeper. Perhaps you want to start a meditation practice, learn how to chant, delve into philosophy, or go deeper in your understanding of certain poses or physical practice. Private lessons can allow you to understand specific topics of interest and dive more deeply into your practice.
I'm interested in one of the specialized series or workshops but they never seem to work out for my schedule...
If you see a workshop or series class you are interested in taking, but it doesn't work out for your schedule, we can work together in private lessons so that you receive the same information and practice (with even more individualized attention).
