A Balanced Practice
Sequencing refers to placing things in a particular order. When you are doing more than one thing, sequencing is inevitable.
Sequencing will be either conscious or unconscious, intentional or unintentional. A conscious or intentional practice is more powerful than an unconscious or unintentional one. Doing a regular sequenced practice provides a point of reference for the daily fluctuations in the body, breath, emotions and mind.
The purpose of sequencing is to develop a practice that works the most effectively. Correct sequencing supports and helps progress your practice systematically. Sequences are constructed from clearly defined and understood concepts.
This Workshop will look at the Principles of Sequencing and how they can benefit you in Asana, Pranayama and Meditation.
Nicky Knoff will use the Discovery and Foundation syllabus as the basis for exploration, discussion and understanding.
• Includes extensive notes: Principles of Sequencing, Asana & Pranayama syllabus (discovery and foundation).
• Includes a yoga practice.
