There are several elements to teaching Hatha Yoga. Each is an important piece of the class, and helps you to achieve the best class. Postures are only a part of the whole. Though important, the students will not be satisfied nor will they return to your class if the stage is not set.
Teaching Yoga in schools is a great way to motivate students to be physically active and more health conscious. The different elements of a balanced practice include physical postures, pranayama exercises, contemplation, meditation and resting in stillness or Shavasana.
