All Yoga is an individual journey of self-discovery
Yet studio yoga focuses exclusively on creating a large group, all-level, instructor-led fitness experience in a single style that is touted as somehow right for everyone. Studio group fitness yoga certainly has legitimate uses, but developing a self-reliant, skillful yet exploratory attitude toward a home yoga practice is not among them. Personalized private yoga, on the other hand, makes these characteristics the centerpiece of practice. Starting with your unique life situation, we employ yogic techniques — asana, pranayama, mitahara, meditations, discourses, and so on — to co-create your yoga experience and to teach you to think independently about your practice. We focus on meaningful results and help you realize through experiential learning that you truly are your own best teacher.
But you don't have to take my word alone for it. For more information on the growing gap between teaching yoga and leading a fitness class, see this article by James Brown of the American Yoga School.
