Creative sequencing for Vinyasa Flow Yoga (50 H Module)

THE ART and buildings blocks of SEQUENCING ( INTENSIVE COURSE)

This Module is for teachers who want to deepen their knowledge about creative sequencing. Learn what you did not learn in your Teacher Training before and become well equipped with this new approach to Vinyasa Sequencing.

Take part in this five day Module.

Created by Marlene Henny, this module is for 200 H Yoga Teacher graduates or experienced teachers who are looking to deepen their understanding of how to sequence and create a vinyasa based class and to incorporate vinyasa flow sequencing into their teaching. The training will both benefit your own practice as well as enrich your understanding of sequencing and teaching skills.

A great yoga class requires excellent sequencing. The course will explore the role of sequencing in creating ease and balance for the body and mind, as well as how to work with asana, pranayama to create balance of the subtle body. These five days will give you time to experience and understand what it means to create intelligent and creative sequences for your classes. After the course you will be able to confidently create seamless yoga classes to meet a myriad of different needs and conditions and to leave room for personal style.

The course combines practice and theory. You will be taught a vinyasa flow class each day complete with sequencing theory, and discussion time to explore how and why the class was structured. I believe that good understanding is key to a seamless and effective sequence so this course helps you to understand how and when to amend a sequence.

You will have the opportunity to be taught and to teach. Within the group setting you will brainstorm specific themes to create your own class plans. The study of vinyasa krama ( step by step progression) will inform you on how to incorporate poses to progressively strengthen and release the body to work towards peak poses and how to embody Flow.

This is what you will get from it:

You will walk out well equipped with all the tools and understanding of sequencing

and with improved class planning, insights into intelligent, invigorating, dynamic, fun, and well organized sequences you have learned to create yourself, ready to teach vinyasa flow and how to teach with understanding, confidence and essence and at the same time leave room for personal style and further development.

You will learn to teach something different and feel inspired to rock your classes again.

These 5 days are ideal for teachers who are looking to get inspired with new aspects of teaching in a structured and creative atmosphere.
