Intelligent group class sequencing requires clarity of purpose. The Sequencing with Purpose Yoga Teacher Training is a 20-hour online training that helps yoga teachers learn how to sequence group classes systematically to make your purpose crystal clear, and the take-away message for your students powerful and compelling. Presented by Rachel Land, Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist and Yoga Medicine® Online Teacher, this immersion allows yoga teachers the opportunity to become confident in the art of interweaving anatomical and philosophical depth into their classes.
You’ll uncover different sequencing methodologies, identify how and when to use each, and how to progress your sequence to meet the needs of different class levels. The ideal blend of theory and practice, this yoga teacher training is broken down into six content sections, each combining the support of interactive online discussion and review sessions with downloadable content that you can repeat as desired, plus assignments to prompt you to apply the knowledge you’ve learned. You’ll finish the immersion with a library of unique, original and purposeful class sequences.
In-line with the current educational industry standards under COVID-19, this training is being offered in an online format.
