I have also been in this situation as I teach multi-level classes at a health club. When I have had students like this I have used modifications to the poses to make them more accessible to the beginner. Most poses can be modified with the use of yoga props (blocks, belts, blankets, chairs) so that even out of shape people can at least get some benefit from them. I would agree that this student should perhaps practice at home to become more familar with the poses and perhaps their modifications. The Sun Salutation could also be practiced to gain the ability to work at a faster pace. If this student needs to rest during yoga practice at class, it would be better if he/she did a modified version of Child's Pose (with arms extended forward and forehead to the matt) rather than savasana which should be saved for final relaxation. Good luck!
