Class Themes

Class Theme: New Beginnings

The following theme can be used either for your own personal practice, or for your group classes or one ones that you are teaching. Everything below is just a guide based on my thoughts and experiences in the moment. Feel free to change anything to better suit your teaching/practice style or so that it feels more authentic to you and your own teaching voice. Namasté

Theme: New Beginnings

Sutra 1:1 Now the Exposition of Yoga Begins

Physical Focus: Mix things up with different variations of the regular poses you teach. Maybe eagle arms with Warrior 1 or Cow Faced Arms (Tricep Stretch) in Warrior 2. A great opportunity to try some new poses as well. This class doesn’t need to be challenging to make it’s mark, but you know your class best 🙂

Pranayama: Alternate Nostril breath

Yama/Niyama: Saucha – purity, space clearing

Chakra: 6th Chakra – third eye, intuition

Mudra: Contemplation, hands in lap palms up. Left hand under right


Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha

This is the Ganesha mantra. Ganesha is known as the remover of obstacles but he also represents new beginnings and the opportunity for a clean start. 

Additional Notes:

With the new school year, a perfect time to reset and start a fresh.
