GEORGE WATTS

Hi, I’m George. I’m a BWY yoga teacher and creator of the Yoga Genie Lesson Planner….one of the many resources within the Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit.

My grandmother practised yoga for over 50 years. My Mum and Aunty are yoga teachers. Yoga is in my blood. Since 2010 I’ve dedicated my life to creating yoga lesson planning resources for my fellow yoga teachers.

George Watts

BWY Yoga Teacher

Way back in 2010 when it was taking me a several hours to write a yoga lesson plan, I created a yoga lesson planning system for myself. I called it the Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit It’s been updated constantly since 2010 (now includes the drag & drop yoga genie lesson planner). It’s used by 1000+ yoga teachers worldwide.

Reasons to love the Yoga Genie Lesson Planner

Save Time
With our drag & drop technology creating a yoga lesson plan has never been so quick and easy.

Less Pressure

With a yoga lesson plan you’ll feel less pressure during the class. 

Big Picture 
With a yoga lesson plan you understand the aims and objectives of the lesson. Without seeing the big picture your class runs into the danger of becoming just another run-of-the-mill, average exercise class.

Never Get Stuck In A Rut
With 1000+ poses to choose from your creativity is limitless. Most yoga teachers end up teaching the same thing week in week out. With the Yoga Genie Lesson Planner you won’t get stuck in that dreaded rut.

Impress Your Students
Something quite magical happens when you give a student a professional looking yoga lesson plan. They instantly know that you’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty for them. And that means they’re more likely to keep coming to your classes.

Time Keeping 
With a yoga lesson plan you’ll never misjudge time. You’ll finish the class on time every time.

Practice On The Mat & In Your Brain
Once you’ve completed the lesson plan, you can practice it on your mat.  This preparation will give you lots of confidence going into a class. You can also practice the lesson plan within your mind using your imagination. I usually fold my plan and place it in my back pocket (or look at it on my smartphone or iPad). Then throughout the day I’ll take the lesson plan out of my pocket and as I’m looking through it, I’ll imagine myself teaching the class. I copied this visualisation technique from Olympic athletes. Every single successful Olympic athlete mentally rehearse their event. I used to play professional golf and would mentally play the golf course in my mind before actually playing it for real. It worked. And I promise the “visualisation technique” will work wonders for you too.

Track Student Progress 
With yoga lesson plans you can track what you have taught throughout the months and years. If you use our Yoga Genie Lesson Planner you’ll have access to all your lesson plans in one convenient place.

Winging It Doesn’t Work
Winging it (on-the-fly teaching without creating a plan) sounds good but rarely produces good results. The myth is that if you’re a really experienced yoga teacher, you shouldn’t need a lesson plan. That’s OK if you’re teaching the same thing each week, but if you mix things up a bit on a weekly basis, creating a lesson plan is a good practice to get into. The Yoga Genie Lesson Planner lets you copy lesson plans with a click of a button which makes creating a 6 week course effortless.

Personalised Instruction
The Yoga Genie Lesson Planner has a column giving recommended alternative poses and modifications for each pose. For example, if your student Bob has sciatica, you’d know by glancing at your lesson plan to demonstrate Reverse Triangle Pose for him and Extended Triangle Pose to everyone else in the class.

With Your Free 7 Day Trial You'll Receive All These Bonuses...
3000+ Shared Yoga Lesson Plans

You’ll receive access to a community of 100’s of yoga teachers worldwide who love nothing better than to share their yoga lesson plans. You’ll be able to edit any of the 3000+ shared yoga lesson plans (or you don’t have to change anything).

Unlimited Pose Requests

Even though there are now 1000+ poses in the Planner, there is an infinite amount of modifications. So, if you want a new pose added to the Lesson Planner just click the “Request A Pose” button on the Lesson Planner dashboard. And I’ll add it for you within 48 hours!

500+ Yoga Class Handouts

I discovered very early on as a yoga teacher that my students loved it when I rocked up to class with handouts. Every week since 2010 I’ve been creating handouts for my students.

Each handout took me an average of one hour. That means you save yourself 500 hours of work because there are 500+ of them!  And you get full, unrestricted access to all of them.

Click here to download several of the yoga class handouts for FREE.

You can use the 500+ handouts as: 

  • Teaching aids for your classes
  • Handouts for your classes
  • Templates for your own handouts

Pregnancy Yoga Lesson Plan Bundle

The Pregnancy Yoga Lesson Plan Kit™ has everything you need to create yoga lesson plans for pregnancy.

For years I had been teaching yoga to pregnant students on a one to one basis. I don’t know about you, but I used to spend hours and hours and hours researching pregnancy yoga before each client arrived. It was exhausting. The reason for my diligence is because I didn’t want to risk the health of the baby by giving the mother-to-be inappropriate yoga postures and breathing exercises. So, I spent several months creating The Drag & Drop Pregnancy Yoga Planner™.

Features  

  • Drag & Drop Pregnancy Yoga Lesson Planner
  • Yoga lesson plan template for Trimester 1
  • Yoga lesson plan template for Trimester 2
  • Yoga lesson plan template for Trimester 3
  • Pregnancy yoga lesson plan aims & objectives forms
  • Pregnancy yoga handout collection
  • Pregnancy yoga student attendance form
  • Pregnancy yoga booking form templates
  • Pregnancy yoga feedback form template
  • Pregnancy yoga folder cover template
  • Pregnancy yoga class questionnaire
  • Pregnancy yoga class waiver form

Sun Salutations Lesson Plan Bundle

With the SUN SALUTATIONS BUNDLE BONUS, you’ll receive 3 versions of Sun Salutations (A, B, C). Surya Namaskar A is a good option for starting your students off slowly because it’s a slightly watered down version of Sun Salutations. Once your students get good at Surya Namaskar A, you could teach them a few harder versions such as Surya Namaskar B and C.

The Sun Salutations Bundle Includes:

* Sun salutations A lesson plan
* Sun salutations A lesson plan (short version)
* Sun salutations B lesson plan
* Sun salutations B lesson plan (short version)
* Sun salutations C lesson plan
* Sun salutations C lesson plan (short version)
* Sun Salutations Tips eBook
* Sun Salutations With Mantras Chart (MS Word)
* Sun Salutations Infographic (PNG & JPG)
* 6 Week Course Plan Template (MS Word)
* Chair Pose (handout)
* Downward Facing Dog (handout)
* Mountain Pose (handout)

Plus, there are dozens of “Sun Salutations Lesson Plans” on the Drag & Drop Yoga Lesson Planner. That means you’ll be able to copy a sun salutations lesson plan with a click of a button, edit it (e.g. add new poses, delete poses), and change the title of it. For example, instead of “Sun Salutations”, you could call it something like: “Let Your Inner Sun Shine“. You can instantly turn an average yoga class into an inspiring yoga class by giving your class the gift of a “theme”. The good news is there are loads of Sun Salutations themes you can use.

4 Sun Salutation Theme Examples

Theme #1
Feel The Ground Beneath You

Most of us in this crazy, fast Word don’t feel very secure and stable physically or mentally. Practicing Sun Salutations is a great way to become grounded by being aware of the ground beneath us. Ask your students to feel roots growing under their feet when they’re in Mountain, Forward Bend and Downward Dog poses. The longer they stay in the pose, the deeper the roots grow and the more grounded they become.

Theme #2
Let Your Inner Sun Shine

Ask your students to allow themselves to enjoy the sequence. A nice trick to help this is to ask them to smile while practicing Sun Salutations.

Theme #3
Invent Your Own Sun Salutations

Ask your students to use their intuition to come up with their own variations of Sun Salutation. It’s one of the easiest sequences to spice up. For example, the advanced students may want to make it a wee bit tougher by adding Chair Pose or Side Stretch Pose. And a student with arthritis may get a chair and do some Chair Sun Salutations. Let your students know there are no rules, and no right or wrong. Just let your hair down and unleash the child within.

Theme #4
Mantra Chanting

Adding mantras to Sun Salutations is a whole lot of fun for the class.

It also adds a spiritual and meditative aspect to the practice. The Sun Salutations B Lesson Plan (see above) has a Sun Salutations With Mantras Handout. Or you can come up with your own mantra for each pose? Or maybe you could even ask the class to come up with a mantra for each pose? You could split the class up into groups of two, and each pair has to come up with a mantra to share with the group. The class then learns the mantras while performing the poses. This is a great way to unleash creativity in the group and will turn into more of a “laughter yoga class” which is a lot of fun.

I love the tips, the meditation bits and all the posture bits. Well, all of it. It pulls together so many ideas that float around in my brain, my computer, my office, my classroom and elsewhere!”

“I really did benefit from your Lesson Plan kit. Firstly I used the “personal folders” idea. Obviously I used my own picture, but used your design. My students really loved it. Secondly I used the themes you suggested on your Lesson Plan Kit, and did a 9 Week Lesson Plan (up to Xmas), and included this in the Folder as well. Thirdly I am going to use your Halloween idea as having fun this coming lesson. I love your creativity and it inspires me to be more creative myself.

“I find the yoga lesson plan kit inspiring and so easy to follow.  I love that there are so many ‘goodies’ – more and more relevant and useful surprises keep coming.  It’s no-nonsense, practical and relevant stuff.  I am loving these resources but wish I had discovered them when I first started teaching.”

“The Yoga teacher lesson plan kit has been very useful in helping me to structure my yoga classes. It is a very useful resource for any yoga teacher.”

“The Lesson plan kit has been a great investment to me. Not only is it jam packed full of tips, useful handouts, and  ideas it is user friendly (even if your not a whizz on the computer – like me!) and  it saves a great deal of time in the planning dept! When I first started teaching I really struggled with lesson planning. It took me ages and gave me a headache! But this kit saved me time, gave me new ideas and really helped boost my confidence to walk into a class with a professional looking plan. You can continually add new plans  and it saves you having bits of plans/ideas written all over the place. I use it every week to create my plans whether I am teaching regular hatha, pregnancy, seniors or private clients. Money well spent!”

“Given all the apps we have available these days, I was skeptical about the seemingly steep price of another gimmicky ‘kit,’ but I have to say, this package is far beyond any Teacher resource I have ever come across, truly. Where to begin? Well, George provides over two thousand yoga stick figures for creating your own class sequences, and just as many yoga templates and handouts for students. This component of the kit alone comprises over 65 PAGES of information on how to modify postures for all levels of experience, in addition to contraindications and precautions.  Lesson Plans for Power Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Beginner’s Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Kid’s Yoga, Templates, and Handouts are all included in this phenomenal deal.”

“I really am impressed with the amount of great information – details – templates – pictures! Even notes that have helped with my training! I will be using this kit for a very long time! Thank you so much!  Well worth every penny!”

“The lesson planning kit has revolutionised my teaching. As a part-time yoga teacher this has been especially helpful. I am able to spend more time teaching and less planning and feeling more professional. I use it for regular weekly class planning and also for planning yoga courses. It’s also a fantastic tool of inspiration and is jam-packed with ideas my students have loved. Thanks so much George for this wonderful resource.”

“As a new teacher I have found the Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit so helpful. I started out covering classes at a busy yoga centre and the kit made it so easy to put together a variety of different types of classes. Now I am teaching more one to one classes I find it really helpful to give a client a really clear short lesson plan to take home. I have also used the music for some restorative classes too! Thanks so much.”

“The Yoga Teacher Lesson plan Kit & The Yoga Studio Kit are wonderful resources for the experienced Yoga Teachers as well as new Yoga students working on their Teacher’s Certification. There is so much vital information! It really blew my mind how much there was!  I have started my Yoga business plan a few different times and never finished it because it is too time consuming! Thanks to George and his marvelous Yoga kits we can get things organized in a much better and faster way.   It’s like having a universal “cheat sheet” for your Yoga Studio that nobody else knows about but you. I loved the first kit so much I bought another kit! I would highly recommend them all!”

“I am a new yoga teacher and felt overwhelmed by the amount of work I needed to do just to get students to my class. It wasn’t until my own practice started to suffer that I realised I needed help. I found everything I needed with George Watt’s collection of kits from help with lesson planning to marketing and support with specialist classes. Now instead of feeling overwhelmed I feel excited and I am back to a much more balanced approach to my life and work. Whatever you spend in buying these kits, you will get back ten-fold in the time you can devote to creating a thriving yoga business.”

“‘For me, lesson planning was a total nightmare, often taking a couple of days labour, I hated it and had exhausted all options of making it easier. I stumbled across George’s Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit on YouTube and saw this as the answer to everything for me to re lesson planning…and I wasn’t wrong. The Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit has saved my sanity – it’s an excellent resource that every yoga teacher/student teacher should have in their toolbox and worth every penny.”

“‘The Yoga Teacher Lesson Plan Kit is great!!!  Great’ couldn’t describe how good it is. It has lots of information to help any yoga teacher.  The Ask Genie Yoga Lesson Planner makes creating yoga lessons a snap.  What could be easier than drag and drop and make changes in a few clicks?  It is really a time saver.  Thank you very much for creating these great tools, George.”

“I wish I had this teacher’s tool kit 15yrs ago! As a teaching aid for me & my students this system has been invaluable. It’s brought so much fun to planning, organising & inspiring both me & my clients. I love that I can create professional class plans within minutes for my large groups & unique, individual plans for private clients. It’s added so much value to my work, I can’t thank you enough.”

“The Yoga Lesson Planner has been a life saver, er…time saver, for sure! I’m so thankful to have found it! The drag and drop format, with cute pics, speaks to my visual learning style, and enables me to see the layout of my entire lesson at one time. I really appreciate the provided sanskrit names for each pose, as well as the detailed descriptions, video demonstrations, contraindications, and list of benefits. Also, the handouts for students have saved me countless hours of research, typing, and headaches. This program has everything you could ever need as a yoga teacher, and I’m only disappointed it took me until now to find it. Now, get off your asana and get this program!”

“As a teacher I love my classes to be inspired by what naturally occurs from my own practice on the mat. This kit allows me to pass this on to students in a really simple and easy to follow format. It also offers me the opportunity to transcribe my own class plans as they flow, so I can be reflective in an instant and it saves me huge amounts of valuable practice time! So much content and so incredibly easy to use! If there was a star rating system on your site I would give it 10 out of 5! Brilliant.”

“I am using the lesson planner for 2 years now and I really love this tool! I build easy and comfortable my yoga lessons. My clients love the diversity of my lessons due to the many poses available in the planner. It saves time and brings great creativity.”

Jules Mackenzie

BWY Student Yoga Teacher from London, UK

“Prior to using the Drag & Drop Yoga Genie, my lesson plans could take up to three hours. Simply because I like to research into the details and provide my students with links to the pose. Now my lesson plans take 30-minutes. I simply select the pose, drop it into my plan and then assess whether it will work, or if I need to move the poses for a better flow. I get all the information I need within the pose content, then download two versions; a) detailed description to review prior to the lesson, and b) stick men style pictures with pose names for an at-a-glance reminder in class. A good lesson plan is essential and your time is precious; the Genie is a great yoga teacher aid.”

“I’ve found the Yoga Teacher Lesson planner to be a really easy to use and helpful tool while completing my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training! It’s much easier to be able to drag and drop and rearrange poses when writing lesson plans (no more complicated lists with arrows and brackets!), and it’s really useful to “see” the poses with the little stickmen. Highly recommend!”

“My first teaching of yoga was almost fifty years ago and I used to draw my own stick figures for my students. I really love your program. The students were so happy to get a simple sheet of stick men to take home to remind themselves of what we did. I thank you so much!”

“I have been very impressed with George Watt’s lesson planning kit. I was looking for a tool which allowed me to drag an accurate yoga pose and be able to sequence it accordingly. George’s tool enables you to do just that and gives you much more including handouts for clients. It has been an extremely useful timesaver especially if you prefer to use drawings in your plans as I do. It also allows you to access other lesson plans and share this useful information with others. It is simple to use and whenever I have had a query George has been kind enough to return an email promptly. Thank you so much and I look forward to continue to use this invaluable service.

“I teach yoga to a variety of populations. Whenever I need a new idea, the first place I go is to George Watts Yoga site. Not only do I find an immeasurable number of resources, but every time I have a question, I email George and he respond with a solution within hours. Well worth the price I paid!”

“I am a yoga teacher as well as a yoga therapist. I teach seven, sometimes eight classes of Hatha yoga week at two different studios. It is challenging to meet the constant demands of creating classes which are interesting, varied, and meet the needs of people of varying ages and abilities.  George Watts’s website provides me with time-saving, innovative, well-illustrated plans which I often print and take with me on-the-go. George responds to emailed questions in a timely manner. Every yoga teacher can benefit from this wonderful tool.”
