The Vinyasa, Sequencing & Subtle Body online course covers the essentials of how to safely sequence a vinyasa class, and takes this knowledge further by giving you the insights necessary to sequence in accord with the more esoteric and energetic principles that fuel yoga’s transformational power. Through learning the subtle anatomy (including in-depth work with the chakras and koshas) you gain an experiential understanding of the deeper layers of the body that will fundamentally shift how you harness the power of asana practice.
In this module, you learn:
- How to creatively sequence a class that is safe, engaging, and leaves your students wanting more
- How to unlock the secrets of the energetic body and how to sequence your classes to optimize the flow of internal energy and turn your asana practice into a transformative experience
- The ancient tools of: Prana (breath), Pranayama (the movement of breath) and Bandhas (sacred energetic locks) and how to teach them effectively
- The sacred philosophy of Maya (great illusion) and the Koshas (layers of the body) and how to use them to uncover the wisdom of the body
- How to work with, access and balance each one of the Chakras: The Seven Sacred Energy Centers
- Revolutionary sequences that give you a leg up as you learn to integrate all these tools and create your own exciting classes
