What are the pros and cons of private yoga classes versus yoga group classes? I love the theatrics of a group class, an expressive teacher leading us as one through a beautifully choreographed sequence, the music, lighting. It can be very entertaining, very social, fun and balancing.
However, group situations aren’t for everyone and in this case private yoga tuition is a great way to tip toe yourself into yoga if you have never tried it before. Or perhaps you simply prefer to practice one to one.
Private yoga is also great for anyone wanting to increase their knowledge of yoga and improve their own practice. One to one tuition brings about a whole new awareness of the alignment of your body, it can also give you the confidence to try out new poses.
My personal preference is a mixture of the two. Group classes for sharing and private tuition for honing.
