Personalized Yoga Experiences:
Private sessions are available to work on specific practice issues or to become more familiar with yoga and how to best meet the needs of your individual body. This is a great option if you are new to yoga. It will help you feel more comfortable in group classes.
This popular session is based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated and should be conditioned together. All of the sessions attempt to coordinate breathing and physical movement, improve focus and concentration, and help students regain control of their body and mind.
Meet up with a friend, spouse, or coworker at our studio and enjoy a yoga practice that is tailored to the two of you.
