Private Yoga Instructor
Private Yoga classes brought to your home! I am a private yoga instructor and create private yoga lessons that are unique to the individual depending on their goals or yoga style. Styles that I can teach are Hatha Yoga, Vinyasas Flow, Restorative Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, meditations, and Pranayamas (breathing exercises). The lesson can last from 60 to 90 minutes long. Locations for private yoga classes are available in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Pasadena, and many more!
As a yoga instructor, I strive to bring people more in touch with their spirit, calm their mind, while also strengthening their body. I adjust pace and level according to the student's level and needs, as well as provide clear instruction and comforting hands-on adjustments.
Growing up as a dancer I have always been attracted to things that involve moving, expressing, and challenging myself. I was of course attracted to yoga as soon as I took my first class. I was given the opportunity to go attend Anuttara Ashram for the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. Over the three years of practicing yoga, I have noticed a great amount of positive change in my physical, mental, and spiritual health. By teaching private yoga classes, I aspire to share and pass down the knowledge and traditions of yoga.

Hatha is a branch of yoga that includes most yoga styles. It is an older structure of yoga that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for meditation.
Vinyasa yoga is a general term that describes many different styles of yoga. It generally means movement synchronized with breath and is a vigorous style based on a rapid flow through sun salutations. Vinyasa may also sometimes be referred to as a flow class, which refers to the continuous flow from one yoga posture to the next.
Restorative is a gentle, relaxing, and passive style that allows students to relax and release the body into gentle stretches that are held for as long as 10 minutes. This style uses a variety of props, such as bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets. The intention is to provide support within each pose, making it easier to completely let go.

Why are private yoga lessons better than going to a group lesson?
Group lessons at studios or gyms are usually packed with 10-30 people and that means there is less attention on you. If you are serious about yoga and its benefits it is important to know if you are doing the poses correctly. Private yoga training creates a space where the private yoga teacher can pay attention to you and correct you whenever you are doing something wrong. Not only that but they can create a lesson that is unique to who you are, your goals, and the type of style/styles you enjoy!
