Sequencing with Purpose Yoga Teacher Training | Online


Training Description

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.

“Rachel is a wealth of knowledge and is very inspiring. It was great to look at approaches to sequencing – how many options there are and how creative you can be. I love practicing with Rachel and she is such an effective educator and communicator. I am definitely a better teacher after doing this training.”

“What I absolutely loved over the past month of taking this training is for every homework class I wrote, I also taught it to my students. The feedback has been truly amazing. I’ve always loved and enjoyed sequencing, I find it to be a creative outlet for me, but I feel like this training has taken my skills to the “next level” and I fully attribute that to this traininng.”
