Paul On “Why I Teach Private Yoga”

When I teach people how to do yoga I empower them.  Teaching yoga and seeing my clients improve is a tremendously rewarding experience.  I love getting down into the trenches with them and getting the burn that only yoga really can provide.  Teaching one-on-one allows me to customize each flow to the student creating a much better experience.  I can lead, cue, and modify each pose.  Move Better… Build Strength … and Just Feel Better with Yoga

My Yoga Practice

Animal Flow in Alexandria

Animal Flow takes all of the challenges of Vinyasa yoga (flowing yoga) and builds new transitions to help you flow from one pose to another.  Animal Flow is a constantly moving practice that incorporates Animal Walks, Balance Postures, and Bodyweight Movements.   It’s fun, burns tons of calories, and you can do it anywhere.

Animal Flow by Paul

New Yoga Students Always Start with a Yoga Assessment. We need to determine what Yoga Style (Ashtanga, Yin, Bikram, etc.) is best, and which positions we need focus on (heart openers, folds, etc.) The Yoga Assessment is it’s own workout, and it will be dynamically scaled to you.

Standing Head to Knee Bikram

We use this list of poses to assess what kind of yoga style and programming is best for you.  Our list of poses has easy poses to very challenging poses.  We select poses of appropriate difficulty for each of the eight main pose types.

These are the questions I ask all new students before their first session

  1. Can you tell me in your words how you would like the session to be?
  2. What would like to “get out of it?”
  3. Are there any part of your body that you want to work (heart openers, folds, hip openers, twists, etc.)?
  4. Do you want it more “stretchy” or more “flow-based?”
  5. Is there a style of yoga that you want to try or that you want to avoid?
  6. Are you “interested” in learning about inversions and arm balances as long as they are scaled to you?

Answering those questions will help me better customize the flow.  Either way, I am going to start with the fundamentals unless you have a lot of experience. 

All sessions have an expiration date:

  • Starter Pack: 1 month from date of purchase
  • Personal Training / Yoga Singles and 5 Pack: 2 months
  • Personal Training / Yoga 12 Pack: 4 months
  • Personal Training / Yoga 25 Pack: 6 months
  • Get Steel Strong Sessions: 6 months
  • Nutrition and Mobility: 2 months.
  • Military Pack: 3 Months from Date of Purchase

Lapsed Sessions do to nonuse:

Should you allow your sessions to lapse because you didn’t come to the gym as frequently as you planned, the following provisions apply:

  1. If your sessions are more than two months expired, they are permanently expired.
  2. If they are less than two months expired, you can get them credited to your account if you buy at least that many sessions on your next pack. Example: if you buy 10 sessions and you let 4 expire by accident. Since it’s a small pack, your sessions would expire 60 days from date of purchase. You realize that you can’t book your session on day 80 and you email us. You’ll need to buy at least 4 more sessions to get the 4 back. So let’s say you buy another 10 sessions, you will get a total of 14 sessions added to your account (10 + 4.)
  3. Section 2 does not apply to Get Steel Strong. There are no extensions to Get Steel Strong for lapsed sessions.

    I cannot say enough great things about Sand & Steel Fitness! I came into the gym as a stressed out couch potato – between work stress and recovery from surgery, I was about as sedentary as they come. With the help of Paul and Dawn, I feel better every day!

    Paul was a rock star from day one, scaling every exercise to challenge me, and build my confidence and strength from workout to workout. And Dawn keeps me laughing as i steadily make progress.

    What I love is the constant support and encouragement. I love working with all of the coaches – they each have a slightly different style that keep workouts interesting, challenging and new.

    What I love more is the positive energy, encouragement and sense of purpose that all of the coaches have. I am a Sand & Steel super fan after 3 months. 20 lbs lost, self confidence found, and building strength and confidence every day! I turn 55 in 4 months, and it will be my best year ever with my Sand & Steel coaches at my side!!

    In addition to personal training sessions, I have also had nutritional counseling, yoga, and mobility sessions with Paul and have found them all to be integral to my weight-loss progress. I have been training at Sand & Steel Fitness for about three months and am quite pleased with the progress I have made. I have had training sessions with almost all of the trainers and have found them all to be fantastic-teaching proper form and holding you to it and adapting workouts to fit your capabilities and needs. Doing everything through Sand & Steel Fitness has been really beneficial-during my personal training sessions, we discovered that I had some flexibility and balance issues, and it was addressed through dedicated mobility sessions. This sort of synergy has been characteristic of my experience at Sand & Steel Fitness.

    Move Better and Get Stronger


    I first started at Sand & Steel in January after committing myself to getting healthier, and I am so happy I went with them. From the start, it was clear that Paul and Dawn cared about each individual client’s needs, ensuring they felt their goals were identified and structuring the training plan to meet those goals. As a person with certain health limitations, they were very understanding and encouraging, demonstrating I could still meet my goals.

    After training for a few months, I also decided to give the nutrition counseling a try, and that has made all the difference. Being able to approach my goals from multiple angles in a single place where I trust the expertise of everyone I’m working with has been the key to my success, and I’ve started to see results here I’ve never gotten with other gyms or programs.

    All of the trainers are fantastic, the space and location is perfect for me, and the schedule flexibility really supports so many schedules.
