I hear from many teachers that the one thing they really would like help with is sequencing! The art of sequencing is one of my favorite aspects of teaching, and one it is one of my favorite topics to help teachers with. Learning the art of sequencing is essential to keep classes fresh, smart, safe, purposeful and exciting for both you and your students. We’ll look at how to add variety to your teaching repertoire through smart sequencing based on themes, categories and peak poses. We’ll not only focus on putting sequences together but we’ll look at effective verbal cues. During our time together you'll have the opportunity to teach fellow teachers in small groups as well as the entire class and get helpful/constructive/supportive feedback on what really shines about your teaching style and areas where you can expand/grow into an even more effective teacher. You’ll also have the time to practice advanced adjustments. You'll come away with a collection of new sequences, support from fellow trainees, and refinement of your personal teaching style. In addition to refining your teaching, we’ll spend 20 + -hours diving deep into advanced yoga philosophy.

Laura sought out yoga to help combat serious health problems her body was experiencing as a result of a decade of major stress and insomnia.

Her extensive studies under Jason Crandell and Shiva Rea taught her smart sequencing and the benefit of fluidity, both of which forged her intuitive, spontaneous and eclectic instruction style.
