Session IV: The Art of Sequencing and Hands on Adjustments
|Instructor(s):||Tias and Surya Little|
|Location:||Prajna Yoga (Santa Fe, NM)|
The Art of Sequencing and Hands-On Adjustments
training features the combination of therapeutic yoga postures and manual
therapy. Our overview investigates how to build sensitivity and a quality of
"listening" in one's hands. We will then review the key points and
principles behind making adjustments in order to help position students further
into a pose. Using restorative poses such as supta baddha konasana,
viparita karani and balasana we will look at ways to increase range of motion
and release stress via hands on contact. We also utilize release techniques on
acupressure points from Chinese Medicine and marma points from Ayurveda.
Included is a guided practice of learning to use tuning forks to conduct
therapeutic resonance into bone. The art of teaching is in offering smart
sequencing. We investigate pacing, length of holds, how to sequence using
props, and combinations of postures in sequence. We cover "faux-pas"
in sequencing and how to structure a class from a theme using continuity,
preparatory sequencing and posture combinations. We review the importance of
the opening and closing of a class. In our Principles of Sequencing we cover
vinyasa, sequencing on and off the mid-line, combining symmetrical and
asymmetrical postures, combining compressive and de-compressive movements and
more. Morning classes review active sequencing and afternoon classes review how
to sequence restorative postures, sequences for beginners and somatic awareness
