This 3.5 hour workshop covers the basic fundamentals for sequencing a strong, safe power yoga class. Pick a theme, a peak pose, or a specific section of the body and know how to challenge every yogi in the room while at the same time minimizing the risk of injury. This is a great workshop for yoga teachers, or for a student that is looking to develop a home practice. It includes a basic template which allows you to find both structure and creativity in your sequencing. The class emphasizes techniques learned at Santa Monica Power Yoga (Bryan Kest’s original studio) and YogaWorks, two of the most respected yoga studios in the United States.
