You can still join the fun! All the materials are still available.
Are you an experienced teacher who wants to move beyond strict rules of sequencing but wants some help knowing how to "break the rules" intelligently?
Are you looking for a behind-the-scenes explanation of how to create effective, dynamic sequences that help you and your students progress in their practice?
Are you interested in learning Teaching Skills but can not afford high-priced teacher trainings, travel expenses and the costs associated with being away from home?
Are you looking for intelligent, conscientious and realistic discussions about the challenges and joys of teaching yoga?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, please consider joining Christina Sell for the Sequencing Strategies Webinar.
This Teacher Training webinar will work with a full-spectrum template of Level 1 Postures and focus on full-spectrum and peak pose sequencing strategies. We will take the basic potpourri template and expand it into several different classes for different levels. We will discuss how one sequence can give birth to an endless variety of presentations by looking deeper at the lineage of postures through the repetition of shape, key actions and bio-mechanical alignment. We will look at how these aspects of pose knowledge and interdependent relationships are essential to building safe, effective and well-balanced pinnacle posture sequences.
PLEASE NOTE-- This schedule has been modified from the original posting to allow students more time to complete the coursework between sessions.

2 Video Classes with Christina each week. Each week participants will have access to two unique classes to work with in practice and to apply to their teaching. The first sequence will be a full-spectrum approach with a particular postural emphasis such as standing poses or backbends. The second sequence will utilize a peak pose sequencing strategy within that week’s postural category and work toward a specific pose such as trikonasana during standing poses or urdhva dhanurasana during back bends or mayurasana during arm balancing week. This dual approach help us explore-- through experience and contrast-- the pros and cons of different sequencing styles and will give teachers abundant examples of progressive teaching methods to enhance their teaching and to help their students progress.
Access to closed Facebook Forum for community discussion, networking and Q&A.
Prerequisites: Because in-depth knowledge of the postures is required for optimal sequencing, participation in the Winter 2015 Asana Junkies Webinar OR in the Cracking the Code Webinar is a pre-requisite for the Sequencing Strategies Webinar. The Asana Junkies Webinar will help all teachers ground themselves in the theory and practice of the Full -Spectrum Sequences we will be working with and Cracking the Code provides fundamental pose knowledge needed for effective sequencing. With these foundational courses established for the group, we can focus more on the teaching methodology of sequencing and linking as opposed to spending time on more pose knowledge, understanding and postural execution.
It is not a requirement, however, please consider joining Christina Sell’s Subscription-based Yoga Channel for additional classes to augment your understanding and to deepen your practice. www.christinasellyogaclass.com
