Thinking of Hiring a Private Yoga Instructor?
March 19, 2023
All of us are at a different stage in our yoga journey. Perhaps you’re just thinking of booking your first class and wonder whether you’ll be able to keep up with the group. Maybe you’re relatively new to yoga and would love more personalized support. Or perhaps you’re a seasoned practitioner feeling stuck in your yoga practice. There are plenty of reasons for considering private yoga instructor in Texas. Read on to find out more.
Are Private Yoga Lessons Worth It?
The short answer to this question is yes, absolutely. Private yoga lessons allow your yoga instructor to personalize the entire class for you and give you all their attention for the duration of the session.
Depending on where you are in your yoga journey, private lessons can help you achieve your yoga goals. These sessions also support you in establishing a more solid practice and rekindling the joy of practicing yoga after some time away from the mat.
For new yogis – and those looking to give yoga a try
We love to welcome beginners to our classes at Uptown Yoga, and our instructors will do their best to make you feel supported and well-looked after. However, it’s not uncommon for beginners to feel a little overwhelmed in group lessons. Simple things like remembering the names of poses can feel challenging at first. Booking a few private lessons lets you and your instructor take all the time you need to build solid foundations. If you’ve never tried yoga before, starting with a private lesson is a fantastic option to give the practice a try without any pressure. You’ll see your confidence on the mat grow in no time.
For experienced yogis
Anyone who has practiced yoga for a few years knows that there are times when your practice is blossoming and other times when you may feel a bit stuck. Those are the moments when hiring a private yoga instructor can be invaluable. Private yoga lessons allow you to dive deeper into your practice, find out why you have become stuck and reinvigorate your practice. Of course, group lessons can offer similar inspiration. But private lessons deliver a greater degree of personalization, helping you move off a plateau faster.
For you who’ve been away from the mat for a while
Injuries, pregnancy, job changes, extensive travel – there are countless reasons why your yoga practice may have been disrupted. Private yoga lessons are ideal for bringing you back to your practice or reinvigorating your yoga journey. After injuries or pregnancy, these lessons let you focus on recovery and rebuilding strength, flexibility, and – most importantly – awareness.
Last but not least, private yoga lessons are an excellent option for anyone with a busy, changeable schedule. If you’re struggling to commit to scheduled group classes, private sessions can be the answer.
Taking Yoga Lessons With a Private Yoga Instructor
What can you expect from private yoga lessons? First of all, expect to spend some time discussing your needs and your goals with your instructor. Personalizing your yoga lesson to you is one of – if not THE – biggest benefit of private yoga lessons.
To tailor your yoga practice, your instructor needs to know more about your practice and experience so far, any obstacles you’re hoping to overcome, and what you would like to achieve. If you’ve never taken a yoga class, your instructor may want to learn a little more about what sparked your interest.
Our Uptown Yoga instructors may also want to know whether you’re looking for long-term private lessons or would like to tackle certain poses only. There are no right or wrong answers. It’s simply about customizing your lessons to you.
Second, expect to get all the attention during your session. If you’ve been attending larger group yoga classes so far, you’ll notice a big difference between those and private yoga instruction. During private sessions, your instructor will suggest many more adjustments or different expressions of a pose.
You’ll also get a chance to work on areas of the body or the practice that you find especially challenging. Private yoga lessons may feel intense, but they truly advance your practice within a relatively short time.
Price Guide for Private Yoga Lessons
Whether they are delivered via online yoga, in our Uptown Yoga studio, or in a location to suit you, private yoga classes are priced differently from group lessons. The price is not only based on the logistics involved, but it will also vary depending on the instructor, your goals, and how many private lessons you’re looking to book.
Rather than offering a one-size-fits-all solution, we encourage you to talk to our instructors and really take advantage of the opportunity to personalize this next step of your yoga practice.
