Private Yoga Trapeze
The Yoga Trapeze is a natural form of inversion therapy that includes a full body workout that can reduce chronic low back pain, help you build strength, lengthen your spine, and all the while increase your range of motion. Through a series of yoga postures and breathwork, my students will not only find connection with their body and mind, but with their soul as well.
* Each private yoga student is required to purchase their own Trapeze rig.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Is yoga difficult?
All forms of yoga have their inherent difficulties. However, as a private yoga student you will be able to cultivate and design a class with me that works well for your body in all aspects. So, while I cannot promise that your practice will be easy, I can promise that we can make adjustments all along the way that fit your needs and goals!
Is yoga safe?
While any new activity has some form of risk, I can assure you that yoga, especially private yoga, which is specifically designed for you, is very safe. However, if you’ve recently had any kind of major surgery or injury, you should definitely consult with your doctor before coming to your first private yoga class.
Can my friends join my private yoga class?
I am always excited to have you bring a friend with you to class, but want to limit it to one other person so that you’re still getting an individualized practice. However, I am happy to host a group class with you and your friends anytime. You can check out those group classes here!
I have a health condition, can I join a yoga class?
You should always consult a doctor before you start a new fitness plan. As I am a yoga instructor and not a physician I cannot tell you whether or not a private yoga practice is safe for your specific condition. However, I will happily work in conjunction with your physician to design a class that works well for you and your doctor.
I am pregnant, can I join a yoga class?
It is always best to consult your medical care provider before engaging in any activity you have not done before. However, as a certified Prenatal Yoga teacher I can guide you through a number of postures and breathing techniques that are safe for both you and your growing baby during your private yoga classes.
