Private Yoga and Personal Training Sessions

Although yoga classes have grown in popularity over the years, some individuals may find that private lessons are more appealing. Beginners can feel overwhelmed in typical class settings, particularly during the first few classes. It can seem difficult to keep up and personal flexibility might require a little work before it becomes easier to get into different poses, they can ease into yoga by taking private lessons to get started.

Private classes can also work well for advanced students that want to take it to the next level. Whether new to the yoga game, needing rehabilitation from an injury, or just wanting to take your practice deeper, one on one instruction could help you reach your goals.

About Faranak


Thank you for your interest in enhancing your Yoga practice and improving your wellness. My name is Faranak Parsi RYT, CPT, AFFA, Reiki II, BS/CS.

Have you ever looked in the mirror as you’re getting ready for work and said to yourself “There must be more to life than this”? You’re not alone, I remember wondering the same thing when I was working at my ideal corporate job and raising two small children. Even though I had everything I wanted, I still felt a void inside. I was always looking for a refuge, I was longing for a spiritual fulfillment.

With all the things I heard about Yoga, I found my way to a yoga studio, that is when I experienced the magic of Yoga, you know that Jell-O like feeling you feel after a good practice, during Sivasana? I was hooked!!!! Some people talk about runner’s high, well, I was experiencing yoga high. I kept going back thinking it was a fluke and every Sivasana I felt the same familiar warm, calm feeling come over me, it felt like embracing an old friend that I haven’t seen for a long time. Eventually, my sense of curiosity led me to complete a stellar Yoga teacher training, the more I learned, the more I realized how deep Yoga is. My 2 year training was like dipping my toes in the ocean. As BKS Iyengar says, “Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.”

I believe Yoga heals people at so many levels. I have personally witnessed many different transformations through Yoga. I want to help people who are working in stressful jobs to find balance in their lives… I’m committed to helping people finding work-life balance. Your wellness will not only impact you, it will also your families and how you view life.

Yoga is my hidden treasure; I’ve been granted this gift from my teachers and their teachers. In the face of yoga’s growing commercialism, my mission is to preserve the purity of the discipline, and to teach the true essence of yoga to my students. In every class, I teach awareness, form, fun, alignment and mindfulness. My style of teaching is very personable, and I like to customize the practice around each student’s individual needs. You’re here with me now, you know my values and you know what I stand for…My invitation to you is to take classes with me for 30 days and see your own transformation.

I have 18 years of experience teaching private, and group classes at yoga studios, fitness clubs, spas, companies, non-profits, virtual, and at yoga retreats. My goal for each of my students are to have functional strength, full joint mobility, deeper flexibility, and contentment. I would love to be your coach and mentor in this awesome journey.

Testimonials


I am very grateful to have known Faranak, she is an amazing yoga teacher who gets it. Faranak is a very knowledgeable instructor, and she’s able to explain the effect of each Yoga pose on the related body parts. I was suffering from a chronic hip pain, and since taking private and semi-private classes with Faranak, she has been able to help me overcome this weakness. Her guided meditation is very effective and powerful. Being attuned, her calm voice and clear directions, carry your soul to the other realm. It is an amazing experience every time. I am blessed and thankful for the opportunity to practice Yoga with Faranak.

Armita D.

I have been going to Faranak's yoga classes for several years. I really enjoy her classes because they are both challenging and relaxing. While demonstrating how to properly do the poses, Faranak explains how each pose helps the mind and body. She is also very accommodating to our requests for focusing on certain areas of the body that we want to work on. Faranak is also kind, caring and funny! I definitely feel more energized after attending her classes.

Junko F.

I have been going to Faranak’s classes for the past 8 years. I started taking some private lessons from her after having surgery for kidney stones. Inversions and other poses helped to address this medical problem without needing to take medications for the rest of my life. I like how Faranak regularly shares her knowledge of anatomy as she explains the physiological benefits of each pose and as she adapts the class to requests from her students. I also appreciate how Faranak is creative with her sequences while at the same time follows the practices of traditional Hatha Yoga, creating classes that are both energetic and calming at the same time. An added bonus is her good sense of humor, she always brings a sense of lightness to the practice. I always leave the class feeling great both mentally and physically refreshed.

Kathy F.

Faranak’s classes are perfectly paced, challenging in all the right ways and intuitive. Her experience and love for Yoga shines through in her practice, and she makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable. I look forward to every class.
