Say Hello To The World’s Easiest Way To Create Yoga Lesson Plans: The Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit
Loads Of Nifty Features
Yoga Genie Lesson Planner Features…
1) Planner: Here you can select what planner you want. When you get your yogic hands on the “Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit” you get access to the Default Yoga Planner (500+ poses within 12 categories) and the Pregnancy Yoga Planner (150+ pregnancy yoga poses). Simply click the up/down arrow to access which ever planner you want.
2) Categories: There are currently 12 categories (may add more later) including: Bandhas, Bolster Yoga, Chair Yoga, Laugher Yoga, Mantra, Meditation, Mudra, Partner Yoga, Pranayama, Relaxation, Seated & Floor, Standing. This variety means you can create interesting, memorable lesson plans for your students.
3) Drag & Drop: You drag the poses from the left and drop them to the right. Drag the pose anywhere on the right and it will end up as the last pose. You can then drag and drop it anywhere within the sequence.
4) Create A Lesson Plan: To create a new lesson plan click the blue “Create A Lesson Plan” button. This section has the following elements: lesson plan name, description, duration, level, keywords, date of class, time of class, location, no of students, public lesson plan, handouts and handouts.
5) Add Poses: You can add your own poses with this feature. This is an advanced feature for users who are keen to add poses that aren’t already available within the categories. However, as a member I will add any pose you want for free! So, it’s far easier to send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask me to add the pose (even if it’s a weird modification). All I ask is that you provide a YouTube video or image showing the pose. I usually add poses within 3 days of the request.
6) Getting Started Video: If you want to look at some tutorials, click the green “Getting Started Video” button. I’ll be adding new tutorials on a regular basis, so it’s a good idea to click this button every so often.
7) Ask Genie: Click the golden “Ask Genie” button anytime you want Genie to create a yoga sequence for you. You don’t even have to click “Create A Lesson Plan” first. If you don’t create a lesson plan first, it will simply name it “Yoga Genie 1”, “Yoga Genie 2”, “Yoga Genie 3”, etc. You can then click the “Edit” button if you want to rename the lesson plan. Once you click the “Ask Genie” button, you’ll be given the choice of “Default Lesson Plan Formula” (can choose Pregnancy Yoga Planner from the dropdown) and “My Lesson Plan Formula” (can enter a maximum of 5 poses per category. Leave categories empty if you don’t want any poses from that category). If adding poses to the “My Lesson Plan Formula” make sure you click the SAVE button at the bottom. The scroll bar will be all the way on the right side of your computer.
8) Search Pose: If you don’t want to drag and drop the pose, you can use the yellow “Search Pose” button. When clicked, start typing the name of the pose (e.g. “boat) and select it. Then click the green “Add to Current Lesson Plan” button. And voila! It will appear as the last pose in your sequence.
9) Print Settings: Click the red button with the printer icon and you’ll be given a bunch of printing options. The default print settings are “The Whole Enchilada” in A4 size. Within “The Whole Enchilada” you can change “Print Columns” and “Front Page Options”. Print Columns Features: Images, Time, Video Link, Modifications, Alternatives, Precautions and Benefits. You can tick any of the boxes to deselect. An empty box means it won’t show up when you download the lesson plan as a PDF. For example if you uptick the “Images” box, the image of the pose will be removed. You obviously won’t want to do that, but if you want a shorter lesson plan, you may want to deselect the “Time, Video Link, Modifications, Alternatives, Precautions and Benefits” boxes. You can also remove any of the “Front Page” settings which include: Logo, Lesson Plan Date, Difficulty Level, Duration, Description and Sanskrit. If you want to give a simplified version of the lesson plan to your students as a handout, I recommend choosing either “5 Poses Per Row” or “6 Poses Per Row”. Choosing either of these options will only print the pose image and name.
Personally, I usually print “The Whole Enchilada” with all the default settings so I can use it as a practice plan (rehearse on my mat or in my imagination by visualising myself teaching it). I usually give my students a lesson plan with the “The Whole Enchilada” and “6 Poses Per Row”. They can then use them for their Home Practice. They are all encouraged and indeed expected to do a Home Practice (otherwise I tell them there’s very little point them coming to my classes because they won’t get much out of it). This tends to attract “serious students” who tend to stay in my classes for years and years. From my experience, students are very good at rising to a challenge. Don’t set their bar too low by not expecting them to do a Home Practice. All my students understand from the very first class that “yoga is a discipline” and part of that discipline is a Home Practice.
10) Android Login: Click the blue Android Man if you have an android device (e.g. samsung smartphone or tablet) and want an easy way to login. It will create a login icon for you.
11) Copy: Click the “Copy” button to copy the lesson plan. This is a great option if you’re planning a 6 week course and want to tweak each lesson plan a little. So, you could create the first lesson plan (e.g. Dolphin Theme Lesson Plan) and name it: “Dolphin: Week 1”. Then, simply click the “copy” button and it will instantly copy the lesson plan. You can then remove or add new poses. When you’re done rename it by clicking on “Edit” (e.g. Dolphin: Week 2). And repeat the process until all 6 plans are completed.
12) Download: Click the “Download” link when you’re ready to download the lesson plan as a PDF. Downloads will probably end up in your “downloads folder”.
13) Edit: Click the “Edit” link when you want to edit the following section of your lesson plan: Lesson Name, Description, Duration, Level, Keywords, Date of class, Location, No of Students, and Public Lesson Plan. You can also upload handouts from here. For example if you created a how to practice Dolphin Pose within MS Word, you could upload it. Or if your partner took a photo of you in Dolphin Pose, you could upload that.
14) Search Lesson Plans: Click the “Search Lesson Plans” link to search for any lesson plan that you have created (or any that other members have created and shared).
15) Handouts: Click the “Handouts” link to see what handouts you have added to: your current lesson plan and previous lesson plans. You’ll also be able to download handouts shared by other members and by admin (moi).
16) Current Lesson Plan: This shows the name of the lesson plan that you’re currently on.
New Copy Pose Feature: We’ve just added a “copy pose” feature to make your life a wee bit easier. Please feel free to send copious amounts of love to our team. We love the love. Here’s how it works. When you drag an asana onto the dashboard, you can click the “red copy icon” on the top right of the pose to…yep, you guessed it…copy the pose. Please feel free to jump with joy.
Log Out: To logout on your PC or laptop, click “logout” on the top right.

OK, yes, I was tried and in need of a cheap laugh when I added this FAQ. You see, I needed one more question to make all the FAQs look nice n’ pretty circling around the women in the blue shirt, but I developed severe FAQ writer’s block. Thus, I went with the first question I could think of. I humbly apologise for wasting your precious time. But, hang on a minute. Why did you click to find out? You curious little devil, you. Just in case you harbour (harbor for Americans for whom the letter “u” is an abomination) a secret fascination with my tea drinking habits. I like green tea with a hint of lemon.
