Private yoga instruction in the Bay Area typically runs from $100 to $200 per hour. Much more affordable group classes at gyms and yoga studios are typically just $20 or $25 an hour, but these classes usually have many students, no personal attention, and often provide a disappointing quality of instruction. Because I want to make high-quality instruction available to a wide range of people, and because I use Zoom to eliminate the overhead of a studio, I charge a steeply discounted $75 per hour for private, custom-for-you instruction, and just $20 an hour for group classes that I keep small enough to allow for personal attention.
I send new clients a brief questionnaire that helps me shape even the first session to the individual person's current state and objectives. As we work together, I continually reshape the specifics of instruction to line up with your evolving needs.
