Sequencing is one of the most influential ways in which you will shape your students prana in class. An intelligent sequence will leave you feeling balanced, re-energized, and full, a poorly sequenced class can leave you feeling agitated, anxious, tired, exhausted, and dull. In this training we will look at various Principles of Sequencing including focal points, adjustments, energetics, long-term health, ease, stability and much more.

Some of the questions we will address in this training are:

How can we best sequence a class to who is in front of us?

Various class blueprints.

How to sequence based on theme, or bhavana.

How to create maximum stability and ease in our class.

How to work and structure a class around the 5 prana vayus.

What are ways to both open and close a practice for lasting effects.

What are the energetics of the families of asanas including backbends, forward bends, twist, laterals, inversions, and arm balances.

How we can create smooth and creative transitions that make sense and are not merely choreographic.

What ways can we start to integrate intelligent use of pranayama and meditation.

Intelligent use of props.

How to apply mantra in class for desired energetic effects and focal points.

How can the gunas be shaped through intelligent sequencing.
