Q

(6) Does Back For Yoga Offer Private Yoga Instruction?

Yes. Back For Yoga recognizes that learning yoga in a classroom environment may not be appropriate for everyone and therefore, some  students may prefer the benefits of one-on-one private instruction. This will allow the student an additional opportunity to work in a safe and individualized environment, where the class instruction is tailored towards their specific needs.  

Or perhaps you would like to introduce a family member or a  friend to the benefits of yoga by purchasing a Back For Yoga private session gift certificate.
