Private sessions are the ultimate way to tailor yoga to the individual. They can be rewarding on many levels for both teacher and student, and are a great way to sustain a living as a yoga teacher. But there are many factors to juggle with private clients: how to attract your first few clients, the business element of your privates practice, or keeping your students consistent. And while many teachers starting out assume a private session is simply a class for one, when approached in this way, you are missing out on the opportunity to inspire meaningful change by creating sessions that meet the deepest needs of your students on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level.
Come for a deep dive into all the elements of working one-on-one, and leave with a new mindset and a plethora of helpful tools to inspire your private practice and keep your students coming back for more.
The first half of this workshop will explore the fundamentals of how to teach and maintain private students. We will spend time discussing the following aspects of teaching privates:
- How to grow your private practice
- Maintaining a clientele
- The business side of yoga privates
- The importance of boundaries as a healthy container for the practice
- Common archetypes of private yoga students
- Teaching to the individual from a physical and energetic perspective
- And more!
The second half of the workshop will be devoted to the specifics of sequencing for a private student, including working with students with various limitations and injuries. We will look at example case studies, coming away with a variety of sequences and techniques to help take your one-on-one sessions to a whole new level!
