I typically talk with the student to find out what their goals are, any past experience, and any physical issues they might have. Then I will begin with simple yoga poses and observe their range of motion, strength and stability. From there we move on to basic poses and alignment to make the student comfortable.

I started through my practice without intent to teach. My teachers began to ask me to substitute in their classes when they had to be out. After getting my certification, I taught for several years as a volunteer before starting my studio.
I have worked with from all walks of life. My typical student is older (over 45), and has some physical limitation such as being overweight, bad knees, bad back, etc. I have a lot of students come to me for help with pain and to get generally healthier as they age.
I would advise students to take the time to talk to the instructor first. They should ask about their qualifications and ask them to describe their style of practice. There are several schools of yoga and every teacher will be different. It's important to find the right fit.
Students need to be realistic about their own physical abilities. There is a practice for everyone and they need to match to the right one or they will not be successful. Start slow and build. Don't jump into a more advanced class than you are ready for.
Students should consider the environment where they will practice with the teacher. Do they want to have private sessions at home? Or in a studio? Will they be more comfortable in group classes? What is the space like? Are they comfortable there? Is it clean?
Consider your schedule. Set a realistic expectation for how much and how often you can practice to establish a consistent routine.
