Private Session

At our Clinton Hill yoga studio, we offer private yoga lessons.

We also offer group private lessons for birthday parties, bachelor / bachelorette parties, team building events, etc.

Please contact us for more information and rates.


But why should you consider a private yoga practice at Dou?

New to yoga?

A private yoga lesson is a great way for beginners to learn the foundations of yoga: the postures, proper alignment and breathing techniques.

Got a pain in the....?

For those of us with injuries, a private lesson can address those issues directly. Through a one-on-one session, you can build a customized routine to help heal and also to prevent any further damage or future injury.

What is a root lock and why should I care about it?

A private lesson allows the time and space to ask questions and to learn the how and why of yoga. There are so many layers to the practice that we often don't get to learn all of them in a group class.

When you work one-on-one, you have the teacher's full, undivided attention
