Yoga Pose Directory 


Good news!

Our new and improved Yoga Lesson Planner has a top secret, sexy, time-saving feature that’ll rock your yogic socks straight off your rubber smelling feet (from the hours spent honing your craft on a yoga mat).

Drum rolls please.

Our top secret, sexy, time-saving new feature is the “Default Pose Filter”.

I know. It doesn’t sound sexy. I should have named it something like: “Sexy As Hell Pose Filter”. But this is a yogic audience. And I thought sexy and hell might not be appropriate wording. But it is. It’s a sexy as hell time-saver.

You’ll be able to find the perfect poses for your lesson plan at lightning quick speed.

Hmmm, time for an example…

You log into your Yoga Lesson Planner. You begin creating a lesson plan with “core strength” as your class theme (here are a few core themed lesson plans I created for my own classes).

But you are suddenly struck with a mysterious case of “yoga teacher lesson planning writing block” – an affliction known well to most yoga teachers.

But what do you do?

Give up? Clasp your hands over your weary head in despair? Wonder just what the heck you’re doing teaching yoga?

No. No. And no.

There’s a better option…

You can use the sexy new “default pose filter” to find your ideal man (a yoga stick figure man). Let’s say you want to find some poses that work the core muscles. Easy peasy. All you do is toddle over to the aforementioned sexy “default pose filter”. And do a search.

You could do a search for: Advanced > Prone > Core.

And hey presto. Voila. Bob’s your uncle (a weird British expression). You are instantly presented with a multitude of poses that match your search.

I know. I shouldn’t have made it so easy for you to create the perfect yoga lesson plan. Because it gives you another problem. What to do with all your free time, now that your lesson planning is a breeze?

OK. Without further ado.

I present to you the “default pose filter” feature…
