June Intensives Week 4: Art of Sequencing - Fundamentals

  • Shiva Shack 1942 North Leavitt Street Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Join us for our last session of the June Intensives. How yoga asana is sequenced for a group class or a single individual has a huge impact on students physically, energetically, mentally, and emotionally. This course will present time-tested principles of safe and artful sequencing, starting with an asana practice. You'll learn:

  • the function of the five directions of movement of the spine along with inversions and leg balances in an asana practice.

  • how to create biomechanically safe breath and movement sequences based on a specific intention.

  • how to prepare and compensate for every movement in an asana practice so that the spine starts and ends in neutral.

  • how to avoid creating cumulative stress in body, breath, and mind.

  • the differences in sequencing a static sequence verses a dynamic, flowing asana sequence.

With a firm grasp of these principles, you'll be able to confidently create a wide range of fun and interesting sequences for groups and individuals – including and especially yourself! You’ll also know how to modify sequences you write to respond to different configurations of students who show up for class.
