Sequencing with Purpose Yoga Teacher Training

Online Training

Join any time & complete at your own pace


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.

Who is This Training For?

For teachers dedicated to a higher standard of learning looking to deepen their knowledge.

The Sequencing with Purpose Yoga Teacher Training is a 20-hour advanced online training for yoga teachers as well as physicians, healthcare providers, coaches & fitness instructors with yoga experience who are interested in learning more about this invaluable curriculum. To fully benefit from this training, we recommend that anyone considering enrollment is actively working with students and clients within a yoga or therapeutic setting.

Yoga Medicine® believes that an experienced yoga teacher can be a valuable asset within our healthcare systems. Our credentials train teachers to understand the body on a deeper level in order to create a personalized therapeutic plan that supports the individual.

Program Structure

This training has six sections – each section is composed of pre-recorded lectures, asana practices, review and homework to integrate the information. We also have scheduled two Q&A calls to keep you on track. If you’re unable to join the Q&A calls, you can post your questions online and watch the recording within the online portal whenever you like.

Live Q&A Schedule (subject to change):

  • – Q&A #1: Monday, April 12th at 5pm PST
  • – Q&A #2: Monday, April 26th at 5pm PST

With the new academic system we’ve implemented this year, this yoga teacher training will run live from April 1-30, 2021 during the Winter Quarter – and we would love for you to complete this live training with us during this timeframe if it works with your schedule. It is our hope that having a Winter Quarter in place will give our yoga teacher training program a more academic feel and provide a more realistic timeline to complete your trainings with continuous support from Yoga Medicine along the way.

However, you are still welcome to join this training at any time – we created this online training to be flexible with your schedule so you can complete it at your own pace. The full training will be available on April 1st and we will have two live Q&A calls throughout the month – so you can weave the work of the training into your life and not work your life around the training. There is no deadline by which you need to complete the training as all sessions will be recorded, and you’ll have unlimited access to the training materials even after completion. Most of all we are committed to bringing you the highest quality of education by our incredible teachers to your door.

This yoga teacher training will count as 20 ‘in-person/contact’ hours towards your 500-hour/1000-hour Yoga Medicine certification. Directly following the yoga teacher training you will be invited to take an online exam to receive your certificate of completion and training hours. These hours will still be recognized by Yoga Alliance as well, click here to read more about their 2021 Online Teaching Exemption.
