Setting the Pace

Learning to pace a class is akin to finding your own voice as a teacher—it takes experience and hard work, but it's well worth the effort. Here's why.

By Jason Crandell


Pacing is not a concrete science and there is no gospel that says one pace is better than another. Embrace this—you have the freedom to be playful and curious. Listen to your intentions as a teacher, the experience of your students, and the subtle factors of the classroom. As you listen you will continue to refine your understanding of pacing and, as when writing a song or a poem, you will be better able to express yourself and connect with your students.

Jason Crandell teaches hatha yoga at Piedmont Yoga Studio in Oakland, California, and at other San Francisco Bay Area studios. He is also featured in Yoga Journal’s Yoga Step by Step video series.
