This course assumes a good understanding of yoga asana and/or completion of NYTT’s Accessible and Progressive Asana modules. It is intended to take individuals deeper into an exploration of the inner and outer form of the poses. How to instruct clearly, including a knowledge of variations and adjustments in poses, will also be covered more in-depth. We will begin exploring the principles of sequencing poses, as well as how to move through a vinyasa-type practice in a safe manner.
