Yoga Sequences for yoga teachers


Whether you are a new yoga teacher struggling with creating asana sequences or an experienced teacher in need of some inspiration, I’ve created a series of sequences for different levels of theme-based asana classes. 

Each class will be well-rounded and work toward a peak pose or a group of poses.

Every asana has benefits, risks, something that usually goes wrong, and component parts. Component parts are those parts of the body you need to work with in the asana—what needs to strengthened and lengthened, and what actions need to be understood to keep the body safe and work in the asana.

A proper sequence protects the areas at risk, and a skilful teacher teaches the student how to work in each pose so they eventually understand how to work in the peak pose and find ease.

An “ineffective” sequence can be taught well, just as an “effective” sequence can be taught poorly. My aim is to help you develop your skills to teach “effective” sequences that provide maximum benefit safely. To do this well, it’s important for you to study the component parts and actions needed in these sequences as well as practicing and teaching them. 

When you purchase a sequence here, you will receive written guidelines for the sequence as well as a video explaining the peak pose (risks, tendencies, and component parts). You will be able to download the sequence with the asana names in Sanskrit as a pdf.
