I think it is vital to point out to your students that yoga is not competitive, and different bodies, indeed different bone structures, may make certain postures difficult or impossible for some people, and that they might prefer variants that perform the same function. Also as often mentioned by Paulji it is essential to know if anyone suffers from musculo-skeletal injuries, problem areas, eye, heart, blood pressure conditions. Discomfort, pain and exhaustion should not be part of the practice.
Progress from warm up, to standing to sitting to prone, finishing with corpse, and ensure that the spine is exercised in all four directions and twisted. Students can be taught abdominal retraction and the sun salutation to do at home on awakening.
The aura yoga teacher training program is a great foundational basis within whose structure extra, advanced or differing poses can be added. So, relaxation, warm ups, all-body stretches, forward and backward bends and twists, sitting, kneeling, inversions and core strengtheners followed by relaxation would be an ideal plan.
