Gernot is available to teach private classes, either one-on-ones or private group classes for your organization.
We can come to your location, you can practice on our beautiful (shaded) rooftop terrace, or we can arrange for a different teaching space, depending on your preferences. Gernot primarily teaches in English, but can also teach in German or Spanish. If you would like to be taught in German or Spanish, please let us know ahead of time.
1800THB per hour for one student, 200THB per hour for each additional student. Additional discounts available for more than five students, or for a series of classes booked at once. Please contact us for more information. For beginners I offer a special discount on a private 6 or 9 Hour Intro to Yoga Workshop.
Private classes can be cancelled up to 24 hours before the scheduled time for a full refund. Full payment is required for later cancellations.
Student feedback on private instruction
"Gernot's classes were a revelation for me. His understanding of the fundamentals of yoga and anatomy are outstanding and the quality of his instruction is superb."
"My girlfriend, Megan, and I just got back from a four month trip across China and Southeast Asia. During our travels, we checked out many yoga studios and classes, from Siem Reap to the Yoga Barn in Bali. Without a doubt, Gernot's style of teaching and knowledge of the body and how it pertains to yoga was hands down the best yoga class that we encountered. Trained in Iyengar and Anusara, Gernot teaches with a strong emphasis on alignment, as well as the health benefits that each different pose provides. In fact, I would go on to say that it was one of the best yoga classes and teachings that I have ever received. After a 90 minute private, Megan and I both felt like our practices grew by leaps and bounds. I highly recommend this yoga studio to anyone who is traveling through Chiang Mai, and is interested in one of the best yoga classes in all of Asia. Had we stayed in town longer, we would have attended more of his classes."
"Sadly I only had time for one private lesson with Gernot. I enjoyed so much receiving alignment instructions from you. Your explanations where so clear and you really took the time to see what I needed. Thank you for a wonderful 90 minutes."
-Henriette (Yoga teacher, Netherlands)
"I recently had the pleasure of taking two private sessions with Gernot. As a yoga teacher myself, I have high expectations of those who teach me. My expectations were exceeded with Gernot's high quality instruction and anatomical knowledge. Gernot did not just lead a class, he was able to pinpoint and diagnose exactly what I needed and create sequences of poses and instruction based on my individual needs. He even took pictures for me to see and learn from. My yoga practice was not only re-energized, but I was able to take my asanas to a new level, in a safer way. Practicing with Gernot was like practicing with a master. If you are looking for a highly knowledgeable yogi, who can help you safely take your practice to the next level — look no further than Gernot!"
-Kate (Yoga teacher, Thailand/US)
"Selbst nach mehrjähriger Yogapraxis mit unterschiedlichen Lehrern in verschiedenen Traditionen habe ich im Privatunterricht mit Gernot viel Neues gelernt. Gernot ist ein grossartiger Yogalehrer, ein äusserst aufmerksamer Beobachter, der neben seinen fundierten Yogakenntnissen sehr viel über Anatomie weiss. Ich konnte aufgrund seines Unterrichts eine Reihe von Fehlhaltungen, die sich in meiner Praxis eingeschlichen haben und auf die mich kein anderer Yogalehrer je hingewiesen hat, die aber einer effektiven Yoga Praxis hinderlich sind, erkennen. Gernot hat mich dann Übungen gelehrt, um an diesen Fehlhaltungen zu arbeiten."
Translation: "I have learned a lot from Gernot's private instruction, even after years of yoga with a number of teachers from several yoga traditions. Gernot is a great yoga teacher and an exceedingly keen observer who knows a lot about anatomy in addition to his sound knowledge of yoga. Because of his instruction I was able to become aware of several misalignments that had snuck into my practice. Despite hindering a truly effective yoga practice, these alignment issues had never been pointed out by my other yoga teachers. Gernot then taught me exercises that will help me improve my alignment."
