THE ANATOMY OF INTELLIGENT SEQUENCING | 100-HOUR MODULE
Intelligent sequencing is arguably one of the most important parts of being a vinyasa yoga teacher. This two-part module will dive deep into yogic anatomy in order to understand how the body functions within the context of a yoga class. We will use this knowledge to learn how to optimally sequence classes that are safe, creative and intelligent.
Part one of this module will focus on the low back, hips, legs, and supporting healthy knee and foot function.
Part two of this module will focus on the mid to upper spine, the shoulder girdle, arms, and supporting healthy wrist and hand function.
In each module we will focus first on learning more about the functional anatomy and biomechanics of this specific area of the body and then use that knowledge to learn to sequence in a way that supports and strengthens this area of the body. We will also focus on both sequencing in a group class and working one-on-one.
