What you may not know is that the whole concept of a Yoga "class" is relatively new as compared to the history of the practice. Private sessions embrace the original format of teaching Yoga with personalized one-on-one instruction.
The reason you see so many styles of Yoga classes is that there are so many types of people, all with different proficiency levels. As our bodies and minds develop and change over time (at different rates!), each person's Yoga practice needs to respond to those changes to remain effective.
Regardless of level, age or stage of life, private lessons provide the perfect setting to address your individual goals and needs.
New students - Your instructor will introduce you to the fundamentals of yoga postures and breathing techniques, selecting postures which meet your specific needs, offering hands on adjustments to ensure that you develop a safe and beneficial yoga practice.
Experienced students - Explore specific areas of interest, work on mastering more advanced postures or learn to overcome any fears that might be holding your practice back.
All students - You can work with an instructor to develop a customized daily practice, which can improve the quality of your life.
Personalized yoga lessons are the most effective form of Yoga, and the quickest way to reach your goals.
Reasons to Consider Private Yoga Sessions
- You are brand new to yoga. Would you like to join the neighborhood yoga studio or attend yoga classes at your gym but are just too shy to jump in? Private sessions are an excellent way to begin your own yoga practice. Develop your confidence by learning the fundamentals of yoga at your own pace. Ask questions when you like, take your time learning the poses, rest when you need to, and receive the individualized attention that you may not feel comfortable asking for in a group setting.
- You would like to deepen or strengthen your practice. Perhaps you are interested in understanding more about the ancient and broad teachings of Yoga. You may want to investigate more difficult poses or receive complete and detailed adjustments. Or there may be specific practices such as pranayama (breath work) or meditation that you would like to add to your practice. Private sessions allow us to tailor the teaching to your specific desires and inquiries.
- You would like to develop a home practice. You may be a beginner or experienced yogi who understands the benefits of a daily practice, but would like assistance developing one. Together we can create your own practice, working on your areas of interest such as alignment, sequencing, pranayama, meditation and/or the philosophical aspects of yoga.
- You have been away from yoga for a while. You’ve had an active practice in the past but are just getting back into yoga, perhaps due to an illness or injury. Private sessions can allow us to reintegrate your body back into your practice while taking special care of your physical or emotional needs.
How do Private Yoga Sessions work?
We meet at the Yoga H’om Studio, at your home or place of business. We will begin by discussing your needs, concerns, questions and goals. Then we work together, considering your individual situation, to develop a practice that is perfect for you.
How many times should we meet?
Ideally, we should plan to meet weekly or bi-weekly for a certain period of time, usually 3-6 months. This allows us time to reach your goals and address any deeper issues that may arise. However, we can work together to create a program that works with your schedule and budget.
Can I get an in-class assistant?
Experience a magical transformation with the gift of an in-class private assistant. Make the most of your yoga class with the undivided personal attention and guidance of a certified Yoga H’om teacher. During any scheduled yoga class the comfort of a teacher’s hands will guide your body with skillful adjustments in your physical postures. This kind of individual attention will help you break through both physical and emotional barriers so that you can experience the bliss of each asana.

What about group private lessons?
Practicing with a group gives us a chance to develop healthy habits with friends, family, or co-workers and to bring more mindfulness and respect to those relationships. Group practice also offers a chance to inspire or be inspired by those around you. These sessions can be held in one of the participants’ homes or at the Yoga H'om studio.
You can also create your own group – Celebrate a Birthday, Anniversary, Bachelor or Bachelorette party, or any other occasion for a one time group lesson. Or gather a small group of friends to meet regularly. Contact Patti to discuss your ideas.
