Private Yoga Lessons
In our intimate setting and warm, supportive community you'll receive individualized instruction and hands-on guidance. Private yoga lessons deepen your practice or address your individual specific issues or goals.
Are Private Yoga Lessons For You?
Yoga With Spirit private sessions can be a great beginning for students new to the practice who are intent on developing a personal practice. They're also a good way for seasoned yogis to take their practice to the next level with individualized, hands-on instruction.
As always, guidance and suggestions will be tailored to meet you exactly where you are in your journey. These one-on-one sessions with Amy will focus as much on yoga off the mat – meditation or yoga’s spiritual and self-awareness practices – as they do on asana.
Students can share private sessions with a friend or small group.
Lessons can be held at our studio in Wayne, PA or via Zoom.

With a junior teacher
Amy’s patient and inspiring teaching...
“Through my private sessions with Amy I was able to learn many ways to create or modify a practice that ultimately suited my own physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Amy incorporated meditation techniques, physical modifications, breath work, balance, and spiritual counseling. Through her, I was able to understand the individual benefits of every posture so that I could ultimately create an individual practice unique to me. I also learned that yoga is not only a physical practice but also offers many other components that are of equal value. Happily I can now take this knowledge and use it in any yoga practice setting and feel confident. Amy’s patient and inspiring teaching will help any student take ownership of their practice safely and individually.” — Laura
Truly one of the most talented and loving yoga teachers...
“Under Amy’s expert and confidence-instilling guidance, I found myself looking forward to each session, rather than dreading my usual pain-filled practice. Amy’s ability to focus on her students and their individual needs, regardless of any real or perceived limitations, is unparalleled in today’s world of mass production yoga. She is truly one of the most talented and loving yoga teachers with whom I have had the privilege to study. I cannot recommend her highly enough to any yoga student, whether they are seeking long term private lessons or just a few fine-tuning sessions in preparation for moving into a classroom setting alongside others traveling the eight-fold path.” — Patti

Yoga Class FAQs
Why do you call it Yoga With Spirit?
Because I want to emphasize that yoga is not simply a physical practice even though that is the most visible aspect of it here in the US. Yoga is first and foremost a tool designed to draw people to live more spiritual lives. As it turns out, living with awareness of our spiritual natures leads to more contented, peaceful lives – nice side effects for any of us!
Am I too stiff/young/old/fat (you choose the adjective) to do yoga?
Absolutely not! At the very core of my beliefs as a yoga teachers is the belief that yoga is for everybody and every body. I teach modifications for every single posture. No matter your “issue,” I guarantee that I’ve taught someone (again, you choose here) stiffer, younger, older, fatter, or more whatever than you!
Do I have to know what I'm doing to come to a Yoga With Spirit class?
While I’m more than happy to provide a private session for your first yoga class, that really isn’t necessary. We have new students in class all the time. I will say that it takes a few classes to start to feel comfortable with the practice, so set your expectations accordingly. Just come follow along! Our warm, supportive community will make you feel welcome and safe. Soon enough you’ll be one of the people our next new student is following!
Why should I come to Yoga With Spirit classes rather than the classes at my gym?
Well, that depends on who is teaching at your gym. There are a lot of great teachers out there in a lot of gyms. That being said, most of the yoga taught in gyms is focused primarily on the postures. I firmly believe that yoga is much more than physical exercise and try to touch on some of the mental and spiritual aspects of the practice in every class. Additionally, because I keep my classes on the small side, I am able to offer a level of individualized attention and direction that you can’t find in many classes.
Do I have to attend Yoga With Spirit classes regularly to benefit from them?
How you define “regularly” tends to vary wildly from person to person. I encourage students to get on their mats at least once a week. This allows the body to continue opening and stretching without contracting too much between classes. Many of our students do commit to coming to class once a week. Some of our students practice more than this. Some of our students come less often — coming to class when they can fit it into their schedules. I think all my students would agree that they always benefit from attending a class — no matter how long it has been since their last one!
Do I have to be religious to benefit from Yoga With Spirit classes?
No. Through yoga we explore our higher selves and how we fit into the world around us. For many of us, this leads to a deepened connection to “something greater” than ourselves. Some people view this “something greater” as God. Some view it as “Spirit.” Some see it as simply the interconnectedness of this world. Your views and beliefs are yours alone. Yoga With Spirit is here to inspire you to explore these beliefs more deeply.
