Study the essential teachings of Smart Sequencing. Learn to build safe and intelligently designed classes for your self practice and for your teaching.
The essential tools
During this Level 1 Sequencing Training Simon offers the essential tools to give you a solid foundation in sequencing. Learn to sequence logically according to the Krama system. (logical and intelligent ordering of poses leading toward a peak pose.)
Energy and Flow
Simon shares his own unique teachings on energetic activation, dynamic breath-work and offers techniques for mastering the practice of synchronising breath and movement. Learn how to create and sustain a state of Flow and to build sequences that invoke a deeper state of inner connection. Teachings offered during this course are inspired by ancient and traditional practices from the Krishnamacarya Vi-nyasa tradition as well as by more modern and innovative approaches to sequencing. Simon focusses on the physical as well as subtle energetic aspects of practice to give you a deeper insight into the amazing science of Yoga Sequencing.
Also included in this course are teachings on modifying the Surya Namaskar, counterposing, unpacking peak poses, pose modifications, rhythm and flow. Simon weaves philosophical teachings into his explanations offering insight into subjects such as karma, samkalpa ( intention), parinamavada (impermanence) and sacred practice. Take your practice and teaching to the next level, support yourself and your students by learning to create Smart Sequences 🙂
At the end of the course you will have the option to choose for the certification process as an add-on. This includes a homework project, evaluation and a personal meeting for feedback. Completing the homework project successfully gives eligibility for your 15 hr Smart Sequencing certification. ( Once completed, this training can be counted toward Yoga Alliance – Yacep and/or Yogasimon Teacher Training Programs)

The solid foundation begins from here
Thanks Simon for this wonderful course. I have been coming back to watch the teaching & practice every now and then within this few months. It is a basic yet real smart sequencing course which helps to continuously refine my sequencing skill in daily practice. I like Simon’s method of creating safe, creative and anatomically informed sequences which really build up a solid foundation for vinyasa practice. Look forward to the next online course which integrates Yin flow.
