Benefits of Personal Yoga Training

Although our YMCA offers 50+ yoga classes free to members, some individuals may find personal yoga training more appealing. Private lessons are a one on one experience that can improve one’s mental and physical health and achieve personal yoga goals. Other benefits of Personal Yoga Training include:

  • Gaining initial experience – Beginning yoga students can sometimes feel overwhelmed in typical class settings. Personal training  can help learning poses, timing and breathing, and jumpstart flexibility.
  • Focusing on personal goals – A private lesson allows an individual to set specific goals and plans, such as personal goals for flexibility, strength or meditation.
  • Creating a personalized schedule – Making the time to practice is a vital element of yoga. If it’s not possible to get to one of our many classes, then a private lesson can accommodate even the most hectic of schedules.
  • Overcoming health concerns – Health conditions like pregnancy, diabetes or heart disease may require special alterations to one’s yoga practice. Personal yoga training addresses health conditions to avoid further complications.
  • Working on advanced practice – Private instruction can allow individuals to take their yoga practice to the next level. Specific yoga classes might not always offer the level of challenge and planning for advanced practitioners.
