About Sequencing Shakti: Yoga and Ayurveda Training
In the Sequencing Shakti training, you will gain the knowledge of the HOW and WHY in sequencing your yoga classes and practices. We will deconstruct the tools and help you understand how they fit together to help you design complete practices – asana, pranayama, meditation – that express and embody a theme using principles from the sacred rivers of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra. Sequencing in this way not only gives you more control over the desired outcome for your students, but also allows the flow of the class or practice to embody holistic, therapeutic, and inspiring effects for body, mind, and spirit.
Explore the fundamentals and methods to increase effectiveness and efficiency in your teaching. Learn how to address specific needs of your students holistically, maximizing the biomechanics and energetics of your classes and personal practice.
This is great training for yoga teachers who learned to memorize a particular sequence and lacked the training on sequencing yoga classes, and/or dedicated yoga students who want to know how to create their own yoga practices.
Led by Tanya Boigenzahn, an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist, Reiki Master, Certified Healing Touch Practitioner, and Thai Yoga Bodywork Teacher/Therapist, brings not only her feminine and intuitive energy to this training, but also infuses the work with tips, tools, and holistic recommendations for you and your students.
