The art of Sequencing

Domenica 13 marzo, dalle 9 alle 12, Lugano Sud. Prezzo: 55.-

Workshop per gli insegnanti, i neodiplomati al Teacher Training e gli studenti avanzati.

This holistic 3-hour workshop will enable yoga teachers, teacher trainees, as well as serious students who wish to enhance their own practice, to create purposeful and highly effective yoga sequences. Participants will explore five topics to learn how to create practices with specific outcomes in mind.

Areas of focus:

  • Reverse Engineering: building a class based on an apex pose
  • Thematic design: using class inspiration and peak poses to create and guide a class
  • Anatomical consideration: building a safe, effective, and transformative practice
  • Notation: creating your short hand
  • Clear Intention: Determining a “goal” and building towards it

Through lecture, discussion and practice we will explore the fundamentals as well as the creativity needed to design original, class-specific sequences.

Workshop participants will be lead through the process of creating a sequence and then experience it in their bodies.  Time will be given to experiment with creating short class plans within the group context to allow participants to receive feedback in a safe and supportive environment.

Materials required: Please bring a notebook and pen and be prepared to practice what we are learning!

DSC_0379 (1)Nura has been teaching yoga for over a decade on multiple continents.  She is an avid traveler, a yogi, a mother and therapeutic massage therapist. But aside from these labels, like many others, she is on a quest to connect to the core; to her truth. She believes that how we practice yoga, and what we come up against on the mat is our very own practice ground for real life.  Yoga keeps her humble, and hungry for more knowledge.  She teaches because she loves to share her own discoveries on her journey through this wonderful and messy life.

Nura has trained and mentored with Sanjeev Bhanot, Founder of Yogalife Foundation, and has completed the 200 hour yoga training at Kripalu Center in Massachusetts.  She is trained, certified and experienced in prenatal yoga and has done further studies in Core Strength Vinyasa, Anusara and Thai yoga massage.  She is also a Licensed and Board Certified Massage Therapist in New York and in the USA with over 1000 hours of training. Nura brings a unique set of skills to her yoga teaching from her background as a therapeutic massage therapist. She enjoys the interplay between yoga and massage work and draws from all her studies in her classes. Her yoga teaching is always infused with a strong foundation in anatomy and physiology.  She has been trained, over the past decade and a half, to see the movement and the freedom, as well as the tension and the blocks, in bodies.
Nura’s classes are playful and joyful, sometimes tough, sometimes sweet.  She draws from hatha and vinyasa styles and utilizes hands on assists and knowledge of alignment and the physical body to guide students through their practice.
