Sequencing Intensive Module with Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash, Apr. 5-7

Sequencing: Choreographing the Flow

April 5-7, 2019

Teachers: Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

sequencing yoga teacher training module, ytt, 200-hr, hudson valleyThe Vinyasa style’s signature quality is flowing movement and creative sequencing. In addition to being really good for the body, moving from one posture to another in a yoga class can be a beautiful art form that elevates the spirit. Learn the basics of choreographing logical and seamless sequences, then develop your skills by practicing how to design sequences around a unifying theme based on anatomy, yoga philosophy or mythological narrative, for instance.

Learn:

    • How to arrange a yoga sequence
    • How to link sequences together to create a whole class
    • How to design kramas (logically progressing steps) around a guiding theme, such as:
      • a pose
      • a particular body part
      • a mythological narrative
      • a yoga concept
Leigha Butler & Jacquelyn Nash

Having met in their 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, Leigha and Jacquelyn decided to plant their yoga roots in Kingston in 2011 when they opened The Yoga House in Uptown Kingston. While their styles of practice and teaching differ, their polarities bring a very balanced approach to sharing yoga with those training with them. Both have studied with various teachers, Leigha most recently with Shiva Rea and Jacquelyn with David Swenson, bringing combined knowledge from different approaches to the practice. While they joke about not reading anything but yoga books, they are continually filling their wells with new inspiration for their committed personal practices and the classes that they teach.

After the holiday season, there is a statement we commonly hear or say:”I have to get my routines and diet in check.” Sometimes it’s not so easy to do on your own.

Through this series, you will have 4 weekly meetings that are part discussion and part personal coaching to identify that which needs to change and gives you a plan on how to do so, you will receive 4 emails a week from Dee giving you daily action items and reminders, and you have the option of purchasing a special yoga class package to kickstart your weekly yoga routine to complement your positive plan of action. (Class package included 8 classes for an additional $96, to be used during the reset and hit a target of 2 yoga classes per week.)

Through this Reset you will:

  • Learn the power of group intention and accountability with guidance and leadership of a certified health coach.
  • Understand and reduce cravings.
  • Identify trigger foods and situations and how to work with them.
  • Create goals and actively work toward them.
  • Rest your digestive system after a long and challenging holiday season –which will include temporary restriction of certain food s because of their known tendency to cause inflammation and contribute to chronic disease. Food preferences and the freedom to work within your own food beliefs i.e. plant based/paleo etc.… will be respected).
  • Understand how, not only a healthy diet but other lifestyle decisions create a cycle of health.
