Private Yoga or Pilates Instructor
Bring the zen to your home. Save yourself the commute to the yoga studio – book a personal and private yoga or pilates experience at home.
Private home yoga instructors are deemed to have a better understanding of your unique needs – as not all of us are blessed with flexibility. The main goal is to improve your overall physical condition and also boost your mental health, too. A private yoga teacher will help you do that, in the comfort of your home.
Private pilates instructors will work more on toning your body, and helping you gradually work towards strengthening your core and major muscles. This is more about stability, balance and endurance.
