Wow! Talk about crunch time. Practice pranayama on the way to your first yoga class.
I guess you don't need a lecture about planning.
Here's an idea to group your class into segments.
1. Centering: This gives everyone time to catch their breathe. Seated or standing is fine. Ask them to set an intention and leve baggage at the door. Try to appear calm.
2. Warm ups or Sun Salutations
3. Standing poses (Warrior 1, Warrior 2, Triangle etc.).
4. Kneeling (Camel, Gate, Cat, Cow, Cat series).
5. Seated Asanas
6. Seated Pranayama
7. Prone Poses (on the stomach)
8. Lying Poses (supine)
9. Relaxation in Supine Posture (Shavasana), seated meditation, or both.
10. Closing / Namaste
Hope this gets to you in time. Next time, give yourself a little time to plan your yoga classes.
