As a yoga teacher, I’m sure you’ve figured out that there are many ways to develop the sequences for your yoga classes. But here’s the thing: all of the ways require effort.


And let’s be real, sometimes you just don’t have the time/energy/creative gumption to develop your class for Tuesday night. So how do you do it? How do you create a sequence when you just don’t feel like you can? To help you out, I’m sharing a 'cheat' to help you whip out a lesson plan with MINIMAL EFFORT.


Here are my three tips for finding inspiration to create great yoga sequences:

1) Take a Class: 

Buy in to an online yoga stage like Gaia, or Oneoeight and take a class. Keep a diary close-by while you practice to record the grouping and things you loved. You can generally delay the class to do this. At that point utilize the class to rouse your lessons for the afternoon or week. Duplicate a couple of the arrangements in your group, evaluate a couple of the signals the teacher utilized, and get their thought for a subject. You can credit the teacher in the classes you're instructing in case you're taking the ENTIRE grouping yet remember that yoga has been around for a long time so not many thoughts/arrangements are really unique and should be credited. 

2) Teach a Ladder Flow:

A stepping stool stream is a style of class where you include one stance for every arrangement. For instance, in case you're instructing a vinyasa stream class, the primary stream could have Warrior One, at that point the following stream you could have Warrior One pursued by Extended Side Angle, at that point the following stream may have Warrior One, Side Angle, at that point Goddess Pose, and so on. You can train a stepping stool stream for a whole hour and just need to fuse 10 presents. The redundancy can enable understudies to get further into their stances and is anything but difficult to recall as a teacher! 

3) Be Spontaneous:

Toward the start of your group, ask your understudies what they need. Truly, this implies appearing at your group without an arrangement so this probably won't suit those of you who can't fly by the seat of your stretchy jeans. In any case, enabling your understudies to give solicitations demonstrates to them that you care about what they need. I'll frequently request understudies to make demands toward the start of my group and close the solicitation line after I get three. I essentially can't recall more than three! Furthermore, if when I request demands no one says a word, I'll offer up recommendations like hip extending, shoulder opening, or a comfortable internal focussed fall practice. In case you're utilizing this technique for getting thoughts for your group, make sure not to do this time after time as your understudies will get on and believe you're never arranged, or apathetic, or disorderly. Be that as it may, on occasion, utilizing your understudies to move your classes is brilliant. 

Cheerful sequencing everybody and don't be reluctant to hit the 'simple' catch sometimes. There is no disgrace in discovering help for yoga class motivation. You are a yoga-showing god/goddess and once in a while removing the work from class arranging will give you the time you have to fill your very own cup.
