Private Classes

Private Classes


If you've never had a private yoga class, it is an amazingly effective way to gain clarity about your body and your practice. Individual yoga classes are great for folks with injuries, people beginning or re-starting a yoga practice, and those looking to deepen their insight into the practice quickly.  Sessions are 60 minutes and can happen at your home or office.

PACKAGES

You'll see the best results practicing consistently over time, preferably with at least three sessions together. This gives me the ability to truly understand your body and your needs, and gives you time to integrate the work we've done.  We'll make a standing weekly appointment that works with your schedule. 

Starter Yogi

3 sessions // $250

  • 3 classes tailored to your body and your needs

 

Sincere Yogi

6 sessions // $450

  • 6 classes tailored to your body and your needs,
  • plus a written sequence for you to work with on your own

 

Serious Yogi

12 sessions // $800

  • 12 classes tailored to your body and your needs,
  • a written sequence for you to work with on your own,
  • plus an audio recording of the written sequence

The Fine Print

Don't have a space at home to practice in?  We can meet at Yoga Bywater for an additional charge--please inquire for studio availability. 

Prices listed are for individual private yoga sessions. I also teach small group classes for up to six people. Contact me to dream up the perfect offering for your group! Great for couples, offices, wedding parties and more. 

Not sure about how many sessions to book? You can book a single session for $90! If you decide to book a package, you can apply that payment to your package (ie, if you decide to book a six session package, you'll owe $360 and have five sessions left).

As always, payment plans are available and no one is turned away for lack of funds. If you are sincerely interested, I am committed to not letting money be the barrier to your practice. Email me for details. 

I welcome all shapes and shades in my classes and coaching. I strive to create spaces of belonging for people who fall outside the "skinny bendy white lady" yoga norm, including folks in larger bodies, people of color, queer and trans folks, and differently abled people. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Have questions or concerns not addressed here? Contact me at hello@bearteachesyoga.org for more information.

PRAISE


PRAISE


I’ve had shoulder issues from an old injury for years, so I was looking for help addressing those problems. I’ve seen significant improvement in my shoulder pain since starting to regularly do the exercises you’ve shown me!

I’d highly recommend other folks work with you... You’re thoughtful, attentive, knowledgeable, and personable— and working with you really did help my shoulder.
— Tina Antolini
You are warm, welcoming, inclusive, wise, knowledgeable, patient and kind. You gave me space to “check in” before we began each session, which felt important to me.

I remember one time when you designed the whole hour, in the moment after seeing “where” I was mentally and emotionally, for me to be on the ground so I could feel held by the earth.

You are so in tune to who is in front of you and it is palpable and rare and beautiful. I’m grateful to have gotten that 1:1 attention.
— Glynis Rumsey
My experience [working with Bear for private yoga sessions] went above and beyond my expectations. I am a person who is generally not exactly pysched to talk about my body with strangers, but I felt very comfortable. Whether asking about my preferred gender pronouns or to look at my MRI I felt Bear was genuinely concerned with my well-being.

Now I am adjusting the way I stand throughout the day every day and feel more empowered to prevent future pain by strengthening my body. I feel like this was one of the most positive encounters I’ve ever had seeking healthcare/physical help.
— Mara Lazer
Bear is an amazing yoga teacher and general life guide. Her private yoga lessons integrate elements of mental, spiritual, physical and emotional health into the practice and have always left me feeling stronger and more at peace afterward.

I had never done private yoga lessons before, but I’m glad I did! I didn’t realize how much benefit I would get from it.
— Claire Bangser
Bear is a wonderfully attentive and intentional yoga instructor. Working with them privately is a great opportunity to address your body’s needs and adapt your poses to better serve your aspirations.
