Practice Design

The principles of how to design practices for different contexts and different people

This course unit gives students a base in designing intelligent, well-structured practices – using the qualities of Sthira and Sukkha – that prepare the body, breath and attention for integrated yogic practice.

This unit covers:

  • Introduce key concepts related to designing and planning a yoga practice
  • Understand the main component of a yoga practice
  • The skill development of designing a yoga practice
  • The skill development of evaluating a yoga practice

You will learn how to assess the intention behind each class (such as group versus individual practice) to work towards the desired effect of each practice.

You will use tools such as the vinyasa krama of an individual posture and a group of postures, sequencing and timing to produce tailored and effective practices.

You will learn about goal postures, dynamic and static practice, counterposing, the importance of warm-up and rest poses and much more.

Training includes classroom learning, webinars, self-study, and assignments.
