About six sessions are generally helpful when working with a Yoga therapist. This duration allows time for you to get a handle on your personalized program, and for your Yoga therapist to observe and adjust your movements and breath so that you have a program that works for you.
The goal is to develop a personal practice that you can continue on your own for continued improvement in mobility, strength, and well-being so that you can eventually participate in group classes if you want to. Periodic tune-ups are a good idea, especially if you aren't participating in a group class where a skilled Yoga teacher can help you modify postures as necessary.
