How to make a yoga studio schedule

If you are taking a new class for the first time you need to create a yoga schedule as a beginner for students who are new to yoga. You can aim for a class thrice a week or daily if you want with a set duration of time to let your students take easy in learning yoga. The schedule should not make the student take yoga as a difficult subject but learn along taking rest in between and understanding the concept. It is always advised to go slow when teaching yoga.

Then slowly after two months’ time, your yoga studio schedule should move ahead to taking more classes weekly, taking at least one day of rest each week so that your client’s body feels more energized with a day off.

 In the online booking system, you can make a yoga studio schedule either in a grid or list form. 

A typical layout or format will have the following information.

Day | Time Class Starts | Time Class End | Name of Class | Name of Yoga Teacher | Sign Up Button

 This makes the students look for a schedule or classes on the studio website or app and book their classes.

The schedule might also have the mention if there is a substitute instructor and the specific location if a yoga studio has more than one. Also, your client can click on the name of the teacher to get a bio or the class to get a class description.

You can list this and number them to make things easier in the schedule for your students, for example, Vinyasa Yoga Level 1 Hatha Yoga 1 or Yoga Flow

Also can name specific like Yoga for beginners, Yoga for Newbies, Foundation classes, Basics in meditation so on and so forth.

Many yoga studios go out of their way to welcome new students and even have special rates and sections on their schedule or website for beginners.

Your yoga studio schedule should make your classes clear about everything that a student or client wishes to know before he or she books your class.

Yoga class levels schedules

Yoga Classes levels state the experience of the class and are often described as Levels 1, 2 and 3. It’s always best to mention the class levels so that your students are not confused and join the right class.

 Level 1 schedule:   Means beginner, or yoga for newbies or the foundation classes for yoga practice which should go slow but progress effectively. You’ll also find students of all skill levels and experience in Level 1 classes because they may prefer that particular time, pace or temperature.

 If you cater to all Levels in your schedule then your students should be familiar with some basic form of yoga

If you make a schedule for Vinyasa yoga, then students must know Surya Namaskara or, Sun Salutations.

 If you are preparing a schedule for beginner, it’s best to have at least fifty classes of that style to cover.  Some yoga studios do not distinguish between the levels because they believe you should be able to join any class. It’s more helpful, though, to offer a well-conceived Level 1 class to beginners.

Level 2-3 schedule:  Obviously this yoga schedule is not for beginners but for students who have at least practiced yoga for a year or so before jing your class. Here your class schedule should have asanas or yoga poses that are more understandable to students

Therefore as a yoga teacher, you have to be able to serve and take care of everyone in your yoga schedule.  For the new students, you have to teach what yoga is in an accessible way. Your words need to be simple, clear and easy to follow. Also, you have to be able to offer a challenge and keep it interesting.

  • Sukhasana
  • Adho Mukha Svanasana
  • Surya Namaskar

Remember as a well trained yoga teacher you can make adjustments to your yoga schedule and sequence according to your yoga student needs.

Once your student finds a class description and time that seem reasonable, he or she will click on the class and read more about it. Then before they click to sign for your class they can also click on the teacher bio, know more about him or her based on experience level and book your scheduled class.

Your calendar at the booking system should provide a visual reminder to yoga practices, be it for Bikram yoga to Vinyasa yoga so that your student finds the best class for him or her that suits his level of yoga knowledge.

Finally, always update your yoga schedule as you need to put your time and get the progress report to manage your schedule and grow your yoga business.
