When we learn sequencing, it usually is a product of where we want to go in the body. That is one skillful way to sequence, but we can also sequence based on where we want to go thematically or “what” experience we would like to foster or help create within the room. A conceptual theme structure explores a particular topic in different ways (ie: the chakras, or elements, or fascia, etc), through different asanas (without a particular apex). Concept classes are great for niche experiences or even a workshop series.

Take your classes into an anthropological exploration of a yoga concept in a deeper and integrated way.

A spanda theme structure pulses between two complementary forces in the body, the heart and or the mind.. (hopefully all 3!). How do we teach a Spanda themed class skillfully and in an inspired way that allows the practitioner to feel and experience two sides of the spectrum, that ultimately brings them into greater freedom. We will explore more than just advanced asana (all asana levels welcome). More interesting than just difficult asanas, we will see how we can breathe life into every asana, the most simple to the most complex.

Feel the clarity AND the freedom that awaits!
