Much of my work in the last year has been taxonomical—categorizing and collating the sequences of poses I teach in class. There are various approaches to building a yoga pose sequence for class or home practice; mine is based on a chunking model. Each sequence constitutes a chunk, and these chunks can be strung together to create a short or a long practice.
My forthcoming book will expound on this model in a clear, accessible fashion (fans of The Athlete’s Pocket Guide to Yoga will be pleased). I wrote about the model in this post on the prAna blog, as well. And it’s the subject of a course I teach both online (Sequencing Yoga Classes from Welcome to Namaste) and in person. The next in-person offering is at the beautiful Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health next month, and there’s still time and space for you to join me! Full details are here.
