Structuring Your Beginning Class: Yoga Sequences for Beginners with Judith Hanson Lasater
Yoga Teacher CEUs:0.8
With the growing popularity of yoga, more and more people with little yoga experience are flocking to studios. Many are middle-aged boomers with varying levels of physical fitness and greater degree of limitations, further adding to the challenge.
Beginning students often share common challenges. These include a lack of body awareness, and the typical physical limitations of the American body, such as tight hamstrings, tight hips, a weak back, and lack of core strength. The older the student, the more pronounced these limitations. Unless yoga teachers know how to help students at all skill levels, beginning yoga students often get discouraged and may never return to class.
In this 2-part recorded online course, Judith Hanson Lasater introduces yoga sequences to use with beginning yoga students to give them the best experience when beginning a yoga practice.
