Less Is More: Swallowing An Imaginary Chill Pill When Creating Yoga Lesson Plans Is A Life Saver

Many yoga teachers feel a compelling urge to cram their yoga lesson plans with too much stuff. Before you choose to go down the “cramming route”, I highly recommend you give your yoga lesson plans a chill pill.

You’ve probably heard the saying: “Less is more.”

Less is more is true when creating your yoga lesson plans.

Think about that for a moment…

Less is More.

Repeat that a few times.

Less is More.

Less is More.

Less is More.

Less is More.

Mmmmm, feels good doesn’t it.

You probably feel a wee bit lighter, right?

So, here’s how to apply the less is more philosophy to your yoga lesson planning…

Repeat The Same Asana 2, 3 or 4 Times During The Class

5 reasons to repeat asanas in your classes…

  • Helps students become more confident (repetition is the mother of all skill)
  • Helps students go much deeper into the pose
  • Gives you a chance to to walk around making adjustments
  • Slows the class so it almost becomes a meditation
  • Most students prefer slower classes (if you have mixed level classes)
