When scheduling a private yoga lesson, be prepared to talk about your intention for the lesson. The practice can be very different depending on the approach. Private yoga may be therapeutic, strength building, restorative, or simply a way to gain flexibility in mind and body. You may ask to receive a postural practice or meditation instruction, custom designed for you. Private instruction can provide a foundation for a home yoga practice. Or you might simply enjoy the experience of having individualized attention on your yoga practice. It is the best way to check alignment with immediate feedback from a certified yoga teacher.
