Discuss the teaching opportunity gained by planning ahead of time. Explain a benefit for students, and a specific opportunity for marketing and promotion. Describe how the focus you set in a plan can guide your practice and study. Discuss how strategic planning can make your overall class planning time more efficient and effective. Explain how considering your signature style can assist you in your planning. Describe various possible formats for your plan. Note how you can use seasonal considerations, philosophy and yoga tools in your planning, and specify resources you can you use to support you. Give an example of a monthly plan.
