WORKSHOP with Alia Swersky
How do we balance the internal pressure we feel to create an intelligent and progressive yoga class with being authentic to what we want to share with our students? This workshop explores the idea of going inside ourselves and trusting the wisdom of the body to guide our sequencing.
As we consider how to plan a class, we will be invited to connect with ourselves first, as a way to touch into the authenticity of our own practice. We will investigate what feels real and interesting to us in our teaching as a way to manifest the kind of class we want to offer.
We will examine:
Working from the inside out to see what organically comes out of us when we go into class planning
Connecting a theme and a sequence
Developing a sequence based on simple movement patterns
Mandala sequencing – moving around the mat
General sequencing principles, such as the arc of a class
You will come away with your own intuitive sequence design as well as two distinct sequences that you can have available to you for creative and authentic class planning.
