Free Downloadable Yoga Class Handouts: Yin Yoga Floor Sequence & Kaya Kriya

Today I created a yoga lesson plan with the theme of Surrender To Slowness, and created a class handout to go with it.

It’s 1 of 250+ yoga class handouts available within the Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit.  Being creative each week with your yoga lesson planning is the toughest part of being a yoga teacher. So, I’d like to share the floor sequence handout and the kaya kriya handout with you.
