Physical exercise in a group setting does not appeal to everyone. Some people feel embarrassed to exert themselves or to sweat in group settings while others feel competitive with one or more individuals in a group setting. Some people aren’t comfortable in co-ed situations while wearing exercise clothing, and some people are simply more private. Those “some people” are the same people who will not exercise at home alone. In fact, they shouldn’t exercise at home alone. A teacher or coach spots while directing technique and physical form to avoid injury.
Evolation Yoga Atlanta offers private instruction for those wanting to get over fears or discomfort with group exercise with personal instruction, and our studio offers ongoing private instruction for couples, friends, or singles wanting a personalized yoga journey.
Private yoga classes offer privacy and personal attention at your own pace. Having a personal yogi who is nurturing and welcoming is a great start to a long-term relationship with yoga. Beginners find comfort and trust with one person who watches the form and reminds you to breathe properly. Without the distractions of a group, one easily attains pure concentration for body movements, postures, breathing, and balance in a private session.
Taking a private yoga class is empowering for those who don’t wish to take yoga classes with a group of complete strangers. Personal attention from a compassionate yogi who understands your interests in the practice of yoga helps to develop your strengths, flexibility, and even your comfort with exercise. Privacy enhances the journey, and encourages the mental and spiritual benefits of yoga to fully come to light. Couples and close friends considering taking private lessons will greatly benefit from direct and personal attention, as a sincere and supportive yogi will show proper coaching techniques, and then couples or friends can properly coach each other at home or in outdoor settings. Private instruction sessions provide a great way to experiment with the variety of yoga techniques: hot yoga, power yoga, Yin or restorative yoga to name a few.
