What Do YOU Want from a Gentle Yoga Class?

I am heading back into the yoga studio for a regular class again. This time, it’s a gentle yoga class (7:30 on Tuesday nights at Yogawood). I have taught gentle yoga quite a few times, but I have not had a chance to teach a regular weekly gentle class.

So, I have been thinking quite a bit about what I like and need when I take a gentle class and what others might want and need. Of course, the second part of that is harder to answer. I know that I want to do yoga that has a flow to it, doesn’t involve long held intense poses, and has limited inversions and no arm balances. But, I’m sure not everyone needs and wants what I do (as much as I would sometimes like to hope for that they will).

What do you want from a gentle yoga class? Or, if you don’t take gentle yoga, what do you think you want from a gentle yoga class?

  1. Interesting question, but yes, hard to answer when you’re the one teaching. I used to teach yoga asana in a community in India every winter and one year I was assigned the gentle class. Essentially I ended up teaching EXACTLY the same asanas as a “regular” class, but with gentle variations or shorter holds. I found that was the best way since it would encourage people to work up to the non-gentle classes. Good luck & love your blog ^_^
