For a course on self-regulated learning, I’ve been assigned a project to complete a distal (long-term) goal over throughout the length of the term. I’ve chosen to lead my colleagues (I’m a high school teacher) in a 45-minute beginner yoga flow as my big goal. Some of the proximal goals (short-term) I’ve set to help me reach my distal goal include research and review on the foundations and fundamentals of yoga, establishing a weekly yoga practice, and teaching what I learn to my students.
Part of the assignment requires us to connect with professional learning communities to stimulate knowledge building and I thought that connecting with this forum would be beneficial for doing so.
So, as the title mentions, if you could give me your best single piece of advice for teaching a yoga class for beginners, what would that be?
