Why You Should Book a Private Yoga Class

Are you interested in yoga but nervous to take your first class? Are you recovering from an injury? Are you a seasoned yogi looking to deepen your practice with an experienced teacher? Private classes at Om On are exactly what you’re looking for! When what you need in your practice is individual attention, private classes offer you the ability to spend time with our amazing teachers working on whatever’s important to you, whether that’s learning the basics, getting on the road to recovery, or nailing a challenging pose. They’re also a great choice for bachelorette parties, team building, and corporate wellness! We think everyone can get a little something out of a private class, and here are just a few of the reasons why.

It’s all about you!

The primary draw of private yoga classes is the ability to set your own schedule and receive individualized attention from an experienced instructor. Since the session is on your time, they’re a good option for those whose schedules make coming to class regularly a bit difficult. Before you get started, your teacher will have a discussion with you about your health history, your activity level, your goals for your yoga practice, and any injuries or physical limitations that could impact your practice. They’ll also be able to provide immediate feedback and guidance as they watch you move through positions and get a better feel for what your body is capable of in this moment, as well as field questions from you about the ins and outs of a specific pose or flow sequence. This is especially good for those bouncing back from an injury, as you’ll be able to learn modifications to help you in your practice as you recover. What does this mean? By the end of your private session, you’ll have a regimen that is tailor made for your goals and abilities!

Take a deep dive into yoga

Private classes are a popular choice for people who already keep up a regular yoga practice but may not feel like they’re progressing as much as they’d like to in a group class setting. This is true for those who are just getting started, too! Yogis of any level can benefit from a little extra love. On a one-on-one level, you can better learn how to use the breath effectively, learn new and challenging postures under the guidance of a highly trained instructor, and receive hands-on alignments so that you know exactly how your body is supposed to feel in a given posture the next time you give it a try in your favorite group class. When you get this kind of close look at the nitty gritty of a yoga practice, it becomes even clearer than ever what an impact yoga can have on your broader wellness regimen. From keeping your body active to centering your mind in the breath, there are so many wellness benefits to reap from your practice, and your teacher will be happy to share all kinds of tips with you.

Comfort is key

We definitely understand that taking your first yoga class, or taking your first class back from an injury or long-term illness, can be intimidating for some. Unfortunately, that means that many people who would really benefit from starting or continuing a yoga practice never start at all because they’re anxious about the group setting. Jump-starting your yoga journey (or your return to yoga) with a few private classes can really boost your confidence! If you’re just getting started, you will have learned if not mastered many basic poses before you hit the mat in person; if you’re working back from a medical pause in your practice, you’ll learn modifications for poses that might be too challenging for your recovering body. Never forget that your teacher is your cheerleader, and their job is to help you develop a practice that fits your needs. You can always come to them with questions as you continue along your journey. They are in your corner!

Sound good? We thought so! Schedule your private class with Om On today – or bring a friend for a duet class! 🙂
