We all know the power of a good sequence of āsana; a sense of clarity, calm, ease in the body and mind, a sense of being prepared for what comes next in life. We begin each journey with the knowledge of where we want to go in an āsana class. When it comes to creating a sequence we may ask ourselves: Is there a peak pose, mood or further practice we preparing for or is this sequence the goal. The answer to these questions will determine when we strengthen or mobilise, pick up the pace or let it settle. This sequencing workshop is for teachers or dedicated students who wish to learn more about the art of sequencing āsana for themselves and others.
With backward bending as our theme will focus on:
– 3 regions in the body that need attention and care when backbending
– 3 categories of backward bending
– Key muscles within each region including direction of muscle fibres, connections to other muscles/ligaments or tendons.
– By the end of the workshop you have key ideas and concepts to create fun and informed sequences for backward bending.
