For those looking for one-on-one sessions, Rob of Red Door Yoga is a good option. If you choose the Ashtanga primary series, he uses his body against yours to deepen and correct the postures. Other times, he might just lift you completely. It's like pair-gymnastics completely dedicated to make the most out of your 90 minutes of practice. Private classes are 600rmb a session, but alternatively, you can also sign up for one of the morning classes and cross your fingers that no one else turns up. Drop-in classes for those group sessions will cost you 150rmb each time. Note that since this one follows the traditional Ashtanga practice, the place is closed on full moon and new moon days.
