Some yoga teachers show a variety of warm ups. For example: Paulji often shows circular movements or kundalini based movements for warm ups. This is a good option. But I want to mention that Sun Salutations performed at a very slow pace and with complete control are also a good warm up. You could still make props available for students depending on their age, size, and level of flexibility. The blocks or two chairs make nice props for the lunge.

Realizing that there are exceptions to every rule it is best to demonstrate how to use a prop rather than pushing one on an older or obese student is wise. I have a fairly large framed woman (over 250 and about 5' 6") who can easily perform splits in every direction. I also have a student over 80 who has better flexibility in her hips and spine than I do. Never judge a book by its cover.
