How This Teaching Works: Private Instruction
From the inception of the relationship, my goal is to impart the practice so that the student can practice correctly without me.
Introduction With Demonstration – Two Hours – Satisfaction Guaranteed
Anyone who has any curiosity about this yoga should schedule the Introduction, as in order to intelligently evaluate the practice one must feel and experience it. After general conversation to become acquainted, we have specific conversation regarding yoga and Ashtanga Yoga in particular. I do a 20-minute demonstration from the 90-minute practice, and then I teach the first ten minutes of the practice until you have it memorized, so that you can do it on your own the next day.
Fee and Guarantee
This session takes two hours and the fee is $100. I’m passionate about sharing this yoga practice because it has helped me immensely. If the yoga resonates in a special way in this first lesson, it may well end up being transformational.
However, if at the end of the introductory session you decide not to pursue further instruction with me, the fee is excused. This is my guarantee; I do not believe that I should be paid if you do not find the session valuable.

Subsequent Lessons – One Hour
Subsequent lessons are open-ended and scheduled one at a time. We review what you have learned, and continue sequentially through the practice at a pace comfortable for you.
Some people (typically those under 45) can learn the full 90-minute practice in 3- 6 months. Other people may never be able to do the full practice. But even 30 minutes a day transforms one’s life by imparting strength, flexibility, agility, and patience.
The fee is $100 in the Fan area, whether for one person or a group. As I come to you, the fee will vary according to location. Fees can be discussed over the phone, or in your home during the Introduction.
