Sequencing for Yoga Teachers with Rebecca Middleton & Kristen Brunello is a 2-day workshop that will teach current yoga teachers how to create a class using Vinyasa Krama. In Sanskrit, Krama means a step, progression, or a process in time. A Vinyasa Krama-based class includes several similar sequences that build upon each other, leading to a peak pose or focusing on a specific body part. This course will include tools and a formula to help participants understand patterns between postures and transitions. It will also teach instructors how to pick apart different aspects of a peak pose in order to sequence completely and intelligently. Participants will walk away with an understanding of the importance of the progression of a class, and the tools to create a safe and accessible sequence.
