About the Intensive

The Art and Science of Sequencing: Designing Transformative Yoga Classes

Most yoga classes today are either uniformly prescribed sequences (as in Ananda, Ashtanga Vinyasa, and Bikram), which often leads to repeated stress injuries or unnecessarily complicate asanas, or they seem to be a random creation in which the lessons are arranged in a bizarre manner. In contrast, the art and science of sequencing invites us to make the lesson creative, yet rational and inspiring, applying the insights of functional anatomy and biomechanics in ways that makes the asana practice safer, more accessible, and more sustainable.

This workshop/immersion/intensive focuses on designing the classes in a way that is shaped by the basic principles of sequencing, beginning with Vinyasa Krama and Pratikriyasana. We will design classes for different levels of ability, different areas of practice (for example, heart opening, hip opening, balancing, deeply relaxing, etc.), and other varied conditions and intentions.

Bearing in mind the ebb and flow of an intensive, we're looking roughly at this timetable. Things might shift based on the practice. Please come with an open mind and easy heart.
