The pros outweigh the cons for those of us looking for something a little more intimate, a little more personally involved
Small Class Size
Personal attention from the yoga instructor can be great. You can benefit from an often more relaxed environment in which you feel able to ask questions. Occasionally you’ll be the only one who shows up for a certain class, thus treating yourself to personal instruction. That’s the best! Specially for beginners.
You Can See the Teacher
You’re not in the sixth row… And you can see all of your teacher: foot positioning, leg angle, stacked shoulders… Seeing and hearing your instructor can help you land your poses correctly the first time. The Teacher Can See You. Your yoga instructor can easily see when your triangle pose isn’t opened quite right. She may need to come make a personal adjustment, though she can and often does in a small class.
