Yoga Sequencing Intensive
With Amy Reed
Saturday, November 18th, 11:30-5:00pm
At our Midtown location, 474 Broadway Ave., Kingston, NY
Looking for a fresh way to enhance your vision and voice as a yoga instructor? Delve into the world of effective sequencing with experienced yoga teacher Amy Reed, E-RYT 500. This workshop is perfect for all yoga instructors—from the very new to the very seasoned. Practice creating conscientious, sequential yoga classes designed around a guiding principle: a mythological tale, a dharma theme, or a biomechanical crescendo, for instance. Broaden your go-to ways of organizing a class, share your creativity with other yogis, and come away with new tools, knowledge and inspiration.
In this intensive workshop we will explore:
- alternative avenues for building more dynamic and safe classes.
- thinking outside the sequencing box (it isn’t all about a peak pose!).
- flexing your mythological muscle by using stories to build a better class framework
- infusing more thematic dharma into your sequencing stack
- using anatomy and body mechanics to create crescendo
- finding your signature sequencing style.
- Myths of the Asanas by Alanna Kaivalya & Arjuna van der Kooij
- Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews
- Your favorite Bhagavad Gita and Sutras translations
- Notebook and writing tool
- Anything that inspires you! (a poem, story, song, picture, etc.)

B.K.S. Iyengar wrote that health “is a state of complete equilibrium of body, mind and spirit.” With this intention, Amy bases her free-spirited classes on an Ashtanga-based, Vinyasa-style of yoga that is inspired by the teachings of Patthabhi Jois and alignment principles of B.K.S Iyengar. Understanding the importance of integrating all aspects of oneself to achieve true wellness, Amy’s classes are dynamic and comprehensive: Harmonium playing, chanting, meditation, and pranayama are all seamlessly incorporated, and woven with thoughtful passages from the Sutras and Bhagavad Gita, poems and affirmations. The result: A rich and invigorating class designed to endure long after the student leaves the studio.
But what is most compelling about Amy is her warmth and sincerity. With a near-tangible appetite for self-study and a gentle sense of humor, Amy immediately makes those around her feel welcomed, valued, and inspired to action. She is as accessible to her students as are her classes. This fosters a safe and encouraging environment where students are moved to approach their individual practices with a light-hearted and self-accepting point of view.
