When I first started teaching yoga, I searched for a yoga sequence builder that would help me prepare for my classes. I wanted a way I could easily print out the sequences that I made without having to draw the poses myself. While drawing them would be neat, my yoga stick drawings aren’t recognizable and it would take me hours.

It took me awhile to find a program that had all of the functions I was looking for. Yoga Class Plan was by far the best option. It has all of the features that I wanted, plus some extras. This site was a life saver!
Here is a quick tutorial on how to get started with Yoga Class Plan.
This is how to search classes from other teachers.
These are the different printing options available.
Benefits of Using a Yoga Sequence Builder
Using a yoga sequence builder is helpful for many situations.
- Sometimes as yoga teachers, we get in a rut. Yoga Class Plan gives you access to thousands of plan created by others. You can also make a copy of their plan and edit it to make it exactly what you want.
- If you aren’t a yoga teacher and want to build up a home practice, this site would be ideal. You can use the already made classes or you can start to create your own practice.
- I often forget about some poses that my students really enjoy. When you scroll through the poses (there are hundreds of them!) you are reminded of poses that you haven’t put into your classes for a while.
- Of course, the biggest benefit I see is being able to print out pictures of the poses so that you can easily follow your plan while teaching.
The nice thing is that you can try Yoga Class Plan for free for two weeks. If you decide that you like it, I would recommend getting a year subscription because you save over 50% of the cost.
If you are looking to take your yoga classes to the next level, I would recommend doing a Savasana reading. My students love it! Yoga Readings for Savasana will give you a lot of ideas to get started.
