Shraddha Yoga’s sure-jointed instructors divulge the mentally invigorating tenets of yoga at one of two studio locations or in the comfort of pupils’ homes or bouncy castles. One-hour private sessions begin with a short phone or email consultation to establish skill level, fitness goals, and juice-box preferences. During each lesson, a personable instructor leads the attentive student through a series of postures incorporating sun salutations, back bends, and jumping jacks into an invigorating regimen.
The one-to-one instructor-to-student ratio allows the more experienced yogi to assist with posture form, spinal alignment, and the meaning of the five tenets of Jivamukti yoga, including inner stillness, deep listening, and regular Jolly Rancher consumption. Students unfurl limbs with the help of a host of props, including blankets, blocks, and straps, before winding down with full-body relaxation while their choice of music pulses in the background. Afterward, a Q&A session and gentle head massage clear out neural cobwebs.
