One-on-one sessions allow us to craft the yoga flows and asanas to your unique goals and improve your weaknesses. Build range of motion, balances, and dramatically improve recovery with our private yoga sessions. We offer customized sessions based on Ashtanga, Bikram, Hatha, Rocket, Iyengar, Yin, and Animal Flow.

Yoga Vinyasa Flow Classes
Our Yoga classes utilize vinyasa-style yoga (flow-based). In our Alexandria VA studio, we have classes featuring specific skill work: e.g. Standing Balance, Backbend, Forward Fold, Arm Balance, Hip Opener, Core Strength, Twists, or Inversions. Other classes utilize the Bikram style sequencing, Asthanga sequencing, Iyengar sequencing, or Rocket style sequencing. Modifications are provided for newer yogis.
