BEFORE YOGA

n/a



Kat Fowler instructs the following:
  • Vinyasa (2/3)
  • Vinyasa is characterized by flowing poses and sequences that are linked to the breath. This class is diverse and sequencing will vary with instructor philosophy and in general is a vigorous, more athletic approach to yoga.

  • 100 Hour | The Art of Sequencing Teacher Training
  • Learn to create intelligent, authentic and effective yoga sequences

    The Art of Sequencing is an advanced 100 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training program created by Kat Fowler for yoga teachers who want to hone in on their teaching skills and grow professionally into the seat of a teacher. Great sequencing cultivates balance in your body, teaches you to break down unfamiliar postures with greater ease, helps insure that your class is safe and effective and gives your students an experience that truly conveys your personal message as a teacher. This program will provide you with a formulaic approach to creating meaningful, authentic, effective sequences of your own through a foundation understanding the body anatomically and energetically. You will be given the tools to sequence for every posture category in a simple clear and logical way, deepen your understanding of the postures, techniques, preparations, and conclusions, and will hone your ability to understand how to use sequencing to express your voice as a teacher.
