DISCOVER THE ART AND SCIENCE OF YOGA CLASS SEQUENCING
Being a modern yoga teacher requires many skills and talents ranging from the practical to the intangible. Empowered teaching comes from the skilful integration of your own embodied wisdom with that of timeless yoga knowledge. This course translates this knowledge into a practical toolkit of yoga class sequencing and teaching skills that will inspire you to embody confidence as you take your teaching to the next level.
Sequencing is both an art and a science, and through this course you’ll learn a variety of sequencing techniques that prepare your students' bodies safely and intelligently as they progress from simple to complex asana. Putting together class sequences can be a fun way to express your creativity as a yoga teacher, and this training will help you become more intentional and purposeful with your sequencing, so that your students will thrive in your classes!
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
- Learn sequencing techniques to take your students on an empowered journey through their asana practice.
- Create your very own sequences, using the application of 'Vinyasa Krama' (intelligent sequencing), that are safe, inspiring and empowering for all types of students.
- Discover the skills to teach a 'multi-level' yoga class, taking into consideration where your students are at, and what their needs and aspirations are.
- Arm yourself with 'sequencing strategies' to respond in the moment to the varying needs of your students, whether beginner, injured, pregnant or other.
- Acquire the skills to modify and adapt your sequences 'on the fly', so that all of your students feel cared for in your classes.
- Learn how to sequence classes and courses for beginning yoga students, and help them to start their yoga journey safely and with a clear pathway to progress in their practice

- Learn how to easily remember your sequences so you don't get lost mid-flow!
- Discover how to repurpose class sequences so that you don't have to keep 'reinventing the wheel'. Know how much of your sequences you can repeat, and how much new material you need to introduce to keep it fresh and inspiring for your students (and for yourself!)
- Cultivate a teaching 'program' or curriculum for your students, so that there's consistency, purpose and clarity across all of your classes, allowing you to map out your students' journey of discovery across a broad range of asanas, and over a designated period of time.
- Learn how to sequence across a week, a month or longer so that you can spend less time working on the actual sequences, and devote more time to cultivating your teaching skills.
- Receive 20 tried and tested sequences that you can use for your own personal practice, or adapt and vary according to your students’ individual and collective needs, and different levels of ability.
- Follow our unique blue-print and class creation process, that will help you put together inspiring classes that are safe, effective and transformational.
- Discover practical and relevant ways to marry yogic wisdom with your asana sequences, creating theming ideas that integrate seamlessly with your class sequences
- Take your teaching to new levels of empowerment and confidence through this practical exploration!

"I've just completed the 50 hour sequencing module with Nicole and I feel so inspired to create meaningful, effective sequences! Nicole's 20 years of teaching experience have created a highly skilful and unique methodology that she so generously shared with us in the course and the sequences she gave us in the manual. I am so grateful for these teachings and have been able to use them in my classes straight away. Thank you Nicole for sharing your bountiful wisdom with us, we are so lucky to have you teach us!!!" ~ Cara, Yoga Teacher & Studio Owner
"The sequencing training with Nicole was fantastic. I used to find planning sequences really tedious work and never really knew where to begin. Nicole's instruction and helpful tips have made the process so much more enjoyable. I now feel more confident in my ability to provide an enjoyable and safe experience for my students through creative transitions and purposeful sequencing." ~ Nabila, Yoga Teacher
