The Art of Teaching: Skillful Sequencing

October 14 - 16th, 2022, Yoga at Lobe, Berlin

As yoga teachers, we want to create not only coherent classes for our students, but also special and profound experiences that have a positive impact on their physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

Some yoga classes remain in our memories. The wonderful feeling of clarity, centering and energy that they evoked in us reverberates long after the practice. This feeling is the result of a coherent, well-planned and energetically balanced sequence.

In this 20 hour training you will learn to create meditative, engaging and inspiring flow experiences for your students and support them in becoming fully immersed in the moment. You will learn to teach safely constructed, varied and thematically rounded sequences and to offer them with clear language and appropriate options and modifications for all levels.

We explore our own practice and intentions as a source of inspiration that we can always draw upon. This will give you the confidence to plan and authentically lead inspiring yoga classes with your own themes and intentions. In addition, you will learn techniques to improve your teaching language and how to facilitate not only your students' practice through precise verbal guidance, but also how to incorporate higher-level themes in a simple yet profound way.

We practice intensively together each day and then deconstruct and analyze the practice in detail. We discuss why which elements are used and why they are used at certain points in the practice. Self-experienced practice and understanding of the structure of sequences are the key to anatomically and energetically effective sequences.

Contents Of The Training

  • Roots and key principles of sequencing (Vinyasa Krama)

The Training
From Friday afternoon to Sunday evening we will meet at the beautiful Yoga im Lobe Block in Berlin Wedding. In this wonderful space we will practice, create and discuss together how to create and teach coherent yoga sequences. The time together is 17 hours. Before the workshop you will receive preparatory and reflective questions to become aware of your own values and goals for this training.

The session will be recorded and accessible even if you can't attend live. The accumulated hours account for at least 20 hours continuing education.
