Yoga Sequences vary sometimes from class to class.

Different shapes and sizes Yoga Sequences “A Precise Series of Yoga Poses Done in Sequential Order”

The World’s Most Popular yoga classes by far and so, therefore, the World’s-Most-Popular yoga classes consist of a precise series of yoga poses done in sequential order. The world-most-popular yoga series are :

?Bikram beginners yoga

?Ashtanga Yoga primary series

Other yoga classes such as Iyengar, Yin, and Vinyasa to name a few, have their own ideas about how to sequence a yoga practice.

For Example, Holding Postures for Up To 5 minutes.

In Vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Of course, all yoga series follow this movement.

This precise series of poses are done in sequential order

In Iyengar yoga classes, poses are held for long periods and often modified with props. Iyengar is a bit different from other series.

All Of The Above Are Hatha Yoga Sequences. 

The most popular yoga sequences are linear.

This simply put means, that one posture follows another in a logical step-by-step direction.

Moving through the series one by one, from less challenging to more challenging and back to less challenging.

In general, a sequence like this opens with pranayama (breathing), intensifies to more challenging postures Trikonasana (Triangle Pose), slows to cooling postures, and ends with relaxation (Corpse Pose).

Besides knowing how to connect the poses, equally as important is knowing how and when to counter the poses.

2. Building your class around a posture

Picking a more difficult posture to build up such as Camel or Triangle, is a fun and creative way to sequence your class. Most of your yoga students will have a favorite posture, and a not so favorite posture, just like you do.

Once you’ve picked your pose, consider how you can guide your class to it. Of course, remember to incorporate counterposes in the cool down before final relaxation.

3. Anatomical Focus

Focusing on a particular area of the body for example whether the hips, backward bends, forward bending, shoulders, hamstrings, is a pleasant and effective way to plan a class that students will love.

Change the anatomical focus each week to build a complete Yoga class series
