Chelsea Private Yoga’s focus is creating a yoga session just right for each student. Your one on one yoga session will be completely tailored to your needs. These are some of the different types of yoga that your class will draw influence from.


While Hatha is an umbrella term for all types of yoga, this type of class is typically more slow and gentle. Great for beginners, and restorative for more advanced students. Hatha yoga balances the mind and body by including physical postures and breathwork. This combination calms the mind and helps relax you for meditation. I finish hatha yoga with a feeling of bliss.


Ashtanga is a structured and intense vinyasa class that involves synchronizing the breath with a series of postures. It creates an intense internal heat, purifying sweat, and will detoxify your muscles and organs. I finish ashtanga feeling cleansed with a new sense of strength.


Vinyasa is a continuous flow of postures, while connecting each movement with breath. These flows will increase strength and flexibility while increasing your overall health and harmony.  I finish vinyasa yoga feeling balanced and calm.


Marinate in seated postures to open tight connective tissues throughout your body. Poses are typically held for 3-5 minutes, really allowing you to open and relax. This is a great way to unwind the mind as well as muscles. Soft, gentle, and restorative. I finish yin yoga feeling centered and rejuvenated.

Vin Yin (yin yang yoga)

This session starts with a vinyasa flow and ends with yin yoga. Combining these two types of yoga into one class creates a truly balanced experience. Creating heat and cultivating strength and then allowing yourself to have some tlc. I finish Vin Yin feeling mindful and balanced.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle yoga is exactly that. Softer and nurturing this practice will create balance of body and mind through modified and supported poses. These gentle poses are adaptable to any body or current flexibility.


Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga where you sit or stand by a chair for support. This makes yoga more accessible to anyone with injures, disabilities, and beginners. Chair yoga is also great for seniors. Clients can increase strength and balance with yoga and the aid of a chair.
