About Private Yoga Classes



What are the benefits of a private class?
A private class is one that is reserved for you or your group only; not open to the public. You get to choose the time and location and I will bring the yoga mats and yoga props. Private classes also have the benefit of more personalized attention and accommodation of special requests.
What do I wear? Do I wear shoes or socks?
Wear any comfortable clothing (yoga clothes, athletic gear, etc.) and yoga is practiced without shoes and preferably without socks.
What should I bring for BEACH yoga?
For beach yoga, I recommend using a large beach towel as a mat; it works better on sand than a traditional yoga mat. Feel free to bring your own beach towel and/or yoga props if you prefer ...but I'll bring clean, cotton Turkish beach towels along with yoga props for use. You may also want to bring: bottle of water, sunglasses and/or cap. For early morning or evening beach classes, you may also want to wear layers.
What should I bring for OUTDOOR yoga (not on beach sand)?
For outdoor yoga on grass or hard surface, feel free to bring your own yoga mat and/or yoga props if you prefer ...but I'll bring clean, sanitized yoga mats and yoga props for use. You may also want to bring a bottle of water, sunglasses and/or or cap and sunscreen, depending on the time of day.
What should I bring for INDOOR yoga?
For indoor yoga, feel free to bring your own yoga mat and/or yoga props if you prefer ...but I'll bring clean, sanitized yoga mats and yoga props for use. If you prefer, you can bring a towel or a face towel to place on top of the yoga mat for face-down poses. Yoga mats are as clean as can be, but if you feel uncomfortable with your face on a yoga mat that is not your own, a towel is a good solution. You may also want to bring a bottle of water.
Can I bring my kid(s) to the yoga class?
Yes! Private yoga classes can be a great family activity. Kids are welcome whether they will be joining us in class or if they want to just hang out and play next to you.
Can I bring my dog(s) to the yoga class?
Yes! Dogs are welcome at my private classes as long as it is allowed in that location.
Will photos be taken?
Private group classes are a great photo opportunity to create lasting memories. If you'd like, I can take a few candid photos during class and leave time for a group photo after class. If you prefer not to be photographed, please let me know beforehand.
