How to Design & Teach an Intro to Yoga Series

WORKSHOP with Beth Award

An intro series is a great way to break down the basics of yoga and help cultivate a person’s confidence to attend public classes or to simply create a home practice. As teachers, we have the opportunity to impart the basics of yoga in a careful, sequential way so that a person’s ongoing yoga practice—of any style—is informed and enhanced.

So how would one break down the basics of this vast body of practice in 6 weeks and inspire and inform someone who may have never stepped foot inside a yoga studio??

This interactive workshop aims to spark your creativity for teaching an intro series. Using my own teaching outline as a starting point, we will crowdsource and build a sample six-week class. Through lecture and discussion we’ll cover:

  • What elements to consider in designing and teaching an intro to yoga series
  • How to inspire students without overwhelming them
  • How to add value to the student’s experience by including informative pre- and post-class communication
  • How to draw on your own values and strengths as a teacher in order to offer a multifaceted, practical, and empowering series
  • How to break down vinyasa into accessible movements
  • Easy-to-teach alignment concepts that apply to all categories of poses

You’ll come away with your own rough draft of a 6-week intro series.
