SCHEDULING: Use the Book Now link above to schedule a private yoga session at Ariele’s Woodley Park clinic. At home or other location scheduling is arranged by email. Before you propose dates, times, locations, click here to see Ariele’s teaching and treatment schedule (if it doesn’t show up as a weekly view, please use the tabs in the top right of the screen) so you know when she is already booked. Then email to arrange a time and place. 

LENGTH OF TIME: We find that 1 hour is a nice length of time for one-on-one yoga session. 1.5 hour sessions are great for those who will be traveling far or unable to attend frequently, or have a lot of specific questions they want answers.

CONDITIONS and CUSTOMIZATION: Private lessons are tailored specifically to you: your needs, conditions (pre- and post-natal, arthritis, etc, including any medical condition), level of experience, special requests for adjustments or advanced asana how-to’s (including learning headstand, arm or forearm balances and handstand) and the degree to which you want to focus on meditation, philosophy and spirituality. They are not a replacement for physical therapy. 

BEGINNERS: Private lessons are an amazing platform for beginning yoga students to avoid injury and quickly develop increased comfort in a variety of yoga styles.

RATES: Private lessons with Ariele start at $115 (video chat), $125 in person-in clinic, $175 for home visits. We accept payment in cash, credit card, Venmo, via Paypal (please add 3.5% for fees), or via check. Please note: there is a 24 hour cancellation policy. Please send an email at least 24 hours in advance to cancel your lesson without a cancellation fee. Thank you for understanding.

GIFT CERTIFICATES: Private yoga lessons make welcome gifts for birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings, and baby showers. Group sessions are a healthy indulgence and much-needed stress-reduction addition for weddings, bridal showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties and more. Click here to purchase a gift certificate.

LOCATION: our Woodley Park clinic, in-home or — per space availability — in a local yoga studio. One on one Aerial Yoga lessons are also available at your home (if you have a rig) or at the YMCA Anthony Bowen in Washington, DC.
