Private Yoga

What are the benefits of a private yoga session? 

Your Own Schedule

Having trouble finding a yoga studio that you like that fits your busy schedule? Whether you are looking to start the day with an early morning practice, a lunchtime yoga express, or some down time to unwind after a long day, the good thing about private session is that we can plan on a time and location that best suits you. I normally give classes at the client’s home, however if you have a preferred place other than your home do let me know!

Custom Program

Fine-tune your practice through a customized program based on your lifestyle/health goals and needs. The pace of your movement and the use of props such as blocks, belts, blanket and chair etc will be considered, as these are very useful to help facilitate your practice. You will gain greater confidence as you progress.

Personal Attention

Meaning you’ll get lots of hand on adjustments, whether its to gear you towards a deeper practice or to bring you safely into and out of a pose with ease, having a hands on private adjustor does the trick. Additionally, I’ll help you work around constraints (if any) and we’ll work closely together to build a safer more accessible yoga practice that best suits your unique body.

No Intimidation

A huge misconception that many people have is that one must be flexible and strong to begin their yoga practice. Unfortunately, the yoga we see today on social media perpetuates this. Yoga is open to all, not just for the fit and slender. And although practicing in a group setting has its own set of benefits, it can be an unnerving experience for a total beginner. My aim is to help you build courage and confidence, and present a pocket full of useful tools for you to use when challenges arise on and off your yoga mat. This will up your yoga ante to become an independent and self-motivated yoga practitioner!


Our sessions draw influence from various yoga styles such as Classical Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Restorative Yoga. Furthermore, with a background in Swedish Thai massage, I love to integrate touch in adjustments that supports your practice, finding places where you can soften and release and build strength and stability. I offer every session the tone of gratitude and of finding balance between Yin and Yang to bring forward a sense of equanimity in body, mind and heart.

Sessions are 60, 75 or 90 minutes long. In addition to One on One Private Yoga Session, I also offer Small Group Private Yoga Session.

First, let’s get in touch for a 15 minute consultation to ensure we are the right fit. To arrange for a phone call, send me a message through my contact page stating your name, contact details and possible call hours. I will get back to you real soon!

Morning yoga with Ariel is very effective to begin the day full of energy. It is most helpful as it helps me bring peace to my mind and connect it with my body if a full stretch session. Ariel is the sweetest instructor, fully prepared and careful to get everyone individual attention according to their needs.

Camila Martinez Castelli, Architect and Interior Designer

I would like to say a great big thank you to Ariel for the private 1-2-1 yoga session for my husband and I, and the massages for me. We not only felt good after the yoga session, we also felt connected not only with ourselves but also to each other as a couple. The busy lives we lead have caused us to neglect ourselves and also each other. The breathing exercise was the most helpful and it calmed me right down, especially when I’m so highly strung and stressed. I wished that I had more time to do the 1-2-1 sessions with you

Ching Walker-Arnott, Assistant Company Secretary

Ariel’s practice is one which anyone can jump into because she works with you, where you are at! She makes helpful adjustments based on your body and abilities, reading your strengths and your challenges very well. By the end of her class it’s impossible not to absorb some of her tranquil strength and calming energy.

Aissa, Consultant

Ariel is amazing! I wasn't a big yoga fan before, because I never could keep up with that inhale-exhale thing, but thanks to Ariel it is not a problem anymore. After our sessions I feel so calm and relaxed and I cannot wait for the next one. I like how delicate Ariel is about each student and that she notices all mistakes we make and gently corrects us. If you are a newbie like I am, I definitely recommend you to start your yoga experience with Ariel.
