Doing it In Public or In Private?

I was catching up on my weekly stories (AKA Celebrity Gossip) and I saw a post about Anne Hathaway leaving a private yoga session and it made me think; would I enjoy private sessions more or less then my normal classes.

Typically there are about 50-60 yogis in my class and I’ve always loved the energy jive that happens there. Your mat is two inches from your neighbor; you can hear their prana-a-flowing… Just helps keep your mojo going throughout class. Then I realized that I’ve never taken a private session before. It’s never just been me (or even me and few friends) with a teacher. I assume there are a lot of positives to this: lots of personal adjustments, alignment checks, personalized session… Nothing sounding too awful to me!
So I guess instead of taking one side to the other I’d like to throw the question out to you.

Maybe I just say this because I can’t afford private sessions though. 😉

I’m stocked since I’m 1) obsessed with Lulu (clothes and overall brand); 2) Lots of twitter/blog friends will be there that I’m jonesing to meet in person; 3) Huge yoga class for FREE (and you know my take on big classes)!
