Prerequisite: Anatomy 500

THE ART OF SEQUENCING

Create a sustainable, exciting, sought after classes, workshops and retreats for your students so they can’t wait to come back and share the love with others! Start with a basic theme for your class --- create a dharma, use pranayam, asana sequences, and chants to bring it home! Learn how to weave your teaching into something that is more than sharing the love of yoga to more of a way of living your yoga OFF your mat!

Design classes that leave people waiting and longing for more. Not only that but, use these themes for social media and blog posts, creating a deeper connection with your students and a more compassionate observation of yourself. Learn how to theme classes based on the Yamas and Niyamas, Chakras, Astral Energy or any thought or idea that you are inspired to explore with your students. Create a single class or even a week long workshop! Leave with sequences and programs that can be designed to be duplicated and utilized over and over again.

One weekend: 16 hours. Start each day by taking Dana's signature class, Moon Mystic Flow. Then reconvene for lecture and further discussion.

HANDS-ON ASSISTING

Learn how to assist your students in a safe, powerful, non-invasive way. Understand just the right way to support them in expanding to where they feel comfortable and safe. During this workshop we will revisit basic principles of alignment that will help you refine your student's postures for more connection and sustainability. Not only will you be able to prevent injury and find deeper variations of the postures for your students, but you will also experience a deeper connection within your own practice.
