How To Find & Choose A Private Yoga Teacher

Take A Moment To Reflect

Whether or not you’ve started seeking your instructor yet, ask yourself these questions:

  • (if you already practice yoga) what types of instructors have I liked taking class with ? What specifically do I like about their teaching, style, personality, etc.
  • What type of yoga do I want to practice? To name a few examples, vinyasa? (a flow-based yoga class, linking breath with movements, designed to warm, strengthen, and stretch), yin ? (a type of yoga where poses are held for several minutes, designed to stretch the deep connective tissues), restorative? (a type of yoga where the practitioner holds passive poses for several minutes that are very supported with props).
