About This Event

Whether you’re struggling to plan inspiring yoga classes, or worried about how to teach multi-level classes to progress your students safely, this 75-minute continuing education event brings forward a science-based solution to help yoga teachers avoid making common mistakes in sequencing classes.

In this session, Hayley Winter reveals 'The 3 Biggest Mistakes Yoga Teachers Make in Sequencing and How to Avoid Them’. With 20 years in development and 7 years of research, Hayley, founder of the Institute of Yoga Sports Science®, shares her evidence-based game plan on the science of sequencing movement.

Hayley covers:

Your Missing Intention
As teachers, we encourage our students to set intentions for their practice, but how often do you, as their guide, set your clear intention for their movement journey? Your sequence intention is your science-based foundation. No intention means no plan, no evaluation, less confidence, and limited growth.

Overlooking the Peak Pose
A peak pose is a key part of a yoga sequence, but how often do you look to the peak pose as your movement focus? Not knowing how to unlock the power of the peak pose can leave you wondering how to safely progress your students.

Making Mixed-Level Assumptions
You may find yourself categorizing students as beginners, intermediates, or advanced. However, this can lead to misplaced assumptions about their capabilities, making it challenging to create accessible sequences for mixed-level classes.

Whether you're a brand new or seasoned yoga teacher, and regardless of the style you teach, you’ll leave this session with invaluable insights, plus a workbook designed to help you advance your yoga sequencing skills.
