Hi Starlight,

I teach with the following lesson plan for the most part and it seems to work well. I begin with warm-ups and then sun-salutations. I then have my students do some hip and leg stretches in corpse pose to extend the warm-up a bit more and really stretch out their legs. Afterwards, I do some ab work. They all loooove that. :) Following ab work, I move into some inversions... shoulder stand, plow, bridge, and fish. Next, is my forward bend cycle, followed by my backbend cycle. I then move into standing asanas and end with spinal twists and final relaxation. The class I have attended for the past year flows like this and it is what I am comfortable with. I am not sure if going from standing to prone conserves energy - perhaps someone else could comment on that. I feel like standing asanas are more strenuous and that is why I save them for last. As for not being able to do a pose - have no fear. :) I cannot do plow as it hurts my neck. My students do it often and I even included it in my practical exam as an example of how teachers are human. Anyway - hope this has been helpful. Good luck and best wishes to you!
