Yoga Designed for Beginners... No Matter How Old

​Beginners are welcome!​​ Learn yoga one-on-one, or in small private classes with your friends, family or co-workers. I am Richard Chandler, MA, LPC, a Licensed Professional Counselor who has continuously taught yoga for over 2 decades in Saint Cloud, Minnesota, and Tuscon, Arizona.  ​I most commonly teach new people and older adults, or those with physical limitations. My approach is to encourage and adapt yoga to you and your own unique body and goals for yoga.

Why Study Yoga Privately? ​

In a private yoga setting, I can tailor the yoga to your own unique needs, including physical health challenges or simply being out of shape. This allows us to use specific modifications to poses based solely on you.

It is easier to avoid injury with private lessons and small classes as full attention will be on you or you and your small group. ​

You can learn yoga based on your schedule, rather than you having to work around public yoga class times. ​​​

Progress is often faster since full attention is on you or your own small group of classmates with the instruction matching your level.​​

You may wish to plan a fun yoga activity. We have done classes for women who arranged a private class for their “women’s weekend getaway” and for pre-wedding shower activities.

The Cost of an Hour of Private Yoga Study​

1 person = $80
2 persons = $100

A Yoga Student Review:

“I’ve worked with Richard in private yoga lessons for nearly a year now, and—as a 60-something beginner, I’m pretty amazed by my increased strength, flexibility, and balance. I’ve trimmed down and have not only increased my confidence, but have begun to let go of the negativity that has tended to limit my physical abilities.

​​When I started, I wasn’t sure that yoga would be something I could actually do, but now I look forward to the weekly workouts with Richard as well as my steady progress as a yoga practitioner.”
