Our experienced trainers are here to guide you on your own personal path of discovery, enriching your practice & knowledge with individualised care & attention.

At Private Yoga we stand by our name, limiting our courses to small groups so we can meet the specific needs of each participant. You will leave confident in yourself and ability to share your yoga experience with others and the world around you.
