Practitioners fall into simple categories of beginner, intermediate and advanced. Many times they can all be in your class at the same time.Occasionally beginners walk into a more progressed class. Their ability to follow instructor guidance is limited and their knowledge of yoga postures is non-existent. They need physical guidance and psychological motivation. It really takes a master teacher to guide everyone through the flow while giving beginners advice and tips on how to manage and keep up. If this is not done correctly the beginner will have a negative experience where they feel insecure and may feel like they are not fitting in.

If yoga beginners are not helped when they walk into a fast flowing class they may very well be put off ever attending a yoga class again due to a feeling of inadequacy or inability to follow. While doing this a master of teaching yoga also presents a perfectly challenging class for the other 2 levels of practitioner all during the same class. (Intermediate and Advanced)It takes a true master of teaching to teach to all 3 levels of practitioners at the same time while pleasing all of them and giving them a very informative learning experience.
