Yoga Skills Test • Purpose: • The purpose of this skills test is to assess the student’s ability to perform a basic yoga skill using the correct body positions and alignments. • Equipment Needed: • The equipment needed is loose fitting clothes, yoga mat, and yoga blocks (if not flexible) for each student.

    3. Instructions • The student is to get into the starting position. Upon the teachers command, the student is to perform the skill. The student is to hold the pose as long as he/she can or until the teacher says to stop. The student will have 2 chances to perform this pose, if needed. The best attempt will be the one that is graded.

    4. Scoring Procedure • Put a check mark in the correct boxes under attempt 1 if the student is successful in accomplishing the individual criteria. If the student is unsuccessful, place an “X” in the box. If the student wishes to perform the pose again, do the same under attempt 2. The best attempt will be the one that is graded. This pose is worth 20 or 25 points if performed perfectly.* • *Downward-Facing Dog=25 points and Triangle Pose= 20 points
