Private Lessons

Yoga Classes Seattle

Private lessons and consultations are a great way to become familiar with yoga and are especially helpful if you have a back, shoulder, hip, knee, wrist injury or common, non-serious medical condition. Private lessons are for 1 or 2 persons. Privates with Richard can be either at The Center For Yoga of Seattle OR using your laptop on Skype.

Richard Schachtel, Director of The Center For Yoga of Seattle has over 30 years of experience in teaching students with injuries and common medical conditions. He has trained 20 times over a 30 year period in India with world renowned therapeutic yoga teachers BKS Iyengar and Geeta S. Iyengar. Richard is one of the most experienced yoga teachers in the Northwestern United States.

Richard has completed a 3 year training on the Therapeutic Uses of Asana and Pranayama in San Francisco with Stephanie Quirk, a close student of the Iyengars. Please note that private lessons with Richard are not available in March, June, July or Sept. Lessons can be arranged with other The Center For Yoga of Seattle staff throughout the year.
