I spent the day in a bakyard-yoga-studio with a group of amazing women. Liz walked us through the first part of our class. I love her style and I love her way of teaching.
The workshop was a sequencing workshop. It's a topic that I am certain needs to be covered in detail and frequently.
One of my favorite things about yoga is the steady, well structured way some teachers step people through a practice. Balance, timing, planning - all of these things make for a fantastic series of postures and a feeling of graceful movement.
When a teacher just shows up and wings it, that's when the practice can become frustrating.
I've been studying sequences for a few years now, with an eye and mind towards achieving balance and fluidity. When a yoga teacher approaches each practice with that in mind, the practice can be amazing.
