Sequencing “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 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 to other series.
All Of The Above Are Hatha Yoga Sequences.
Most popular yoga sequences are linear.
This simply put means, that one posture follows another in a logical step-by-step direction.
Moving though 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 the knowing how and when to counter the poses.
A counter pose involves moving the body in the opposite direction of the previous pose. Therefore releasing movements that were held in the previous pose, and creating balance in the body.
