When you need focused attention to learn, move safely, be challenged appropriately, and try something new, a private session is the perfect choice. In your session, we focus on exactly what you need instead of what a group can handle.

We can do all one kind of activity (e.g. yoga), or a mix (1/3 fascial movement and 2/3 Pilates). Every session can be different depending on the day and your needs. Come once, make a 3 month commitment in order to accomplish a goal, or anything in between!


Do you need some friend time while you move and breathe? Do you want to take care of our body alongside a partner, parent, child, or sibling? A duet session for the two of you might do the trick!

You will usually do the same things as your new or current friend, but sometimes you each need something different while having together time. This options garners you personalized attention and the ability to choose a schedule that is optimal but saves you a bit of cash too!

Personal Vitality Plan

Your Personal Vitality Plan is a 3 month venture where we work together to create the positive change you need to feel more alive and capable in your body. Each week, we meet for a mini private session to check in and assess your progress. You will receive feedback so you know you are continuing in the right direction and are focusing on what you need to in order to meet your goal. Also each week you will have access to either a video or audio lesson so you can be working daily at home. The more often your new habits are reinforced, the faster you progress!

Make a Private a Special Event!

Private and duet sessions can be an occasional treat (Birthday gift, celebratory me-time session, or an “I Love You” or “Thank You” offering). They can also be a regular part of your self care routine. The sky is the limit!



Gentle strengthening and flexibility training are so helpful to me with my joint issues. I struggle with late stage lyme disease.  Zoa provides such personal attention to body mechanics and movement.  Mental clarity and physical strength are the benefits I feel after each class.  I enjoy Group Reformer classes, as well as Barre for Vitality and Zen Flow Yoga for increased flexibility.
