Why Less Is More When
Creating Your Yoga Lesson Plans

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 Your Yoga Class

I know that may sound like an outrageous statement, but here are are five reasons to repeat asanas in your classes…

  1. It helps students become more confident practicing the pose
  2. It helps students go much deeper into the pose
  3. It gives you a chance to to walk around making adjustments
  4. It slows the class so it almost becomes a meditation
  5. Most students prefer slower classes (if you have mixed level classes)
