Mastering Asana Sequence Design

April 14, 2018 - April 15, 2018


In this weekend intensive for yoga teachers, you’ll review and apply principles of eloquent and organic sequence design, discuss how to use variations of poses within a set structure, and complete individually designed sequences based on anatomic, energetic, psychological, philosophical, and/or spiritual themes that will include variations for all levels of practice. The intensive will also include:

  • A review of fundamentals: principles, elements, and features of a well-designed sequence
  • Varieties of sequence design strategies
  • Designing for peak poses, transitions, and experiences
  • Asana and pratyahara: designing for inward movement
  • Moving to Intersection poses
  • Challenging transitions
  • Moving from peak poses to counter poses
  • Developing a clear and concise vocabulary

You’ll do a lot of work on the mat to see what works, help test one another’s sequences, and give one another feedback. You’ll gain revealing insights and develop valuable skills through the immediate application of the principles we’ll be discussing that will help you consistently design and teach yoga classes that are complete, authentic, and fantastic.
