Mastering the Art Of Vinyasa Yoga Sequencing 3 Day Teacher Development + Inspiration Program with Jason Crandell

WHY I CREATED THIS TRAINING

Having trained hundreds of teachers over the course of nearly two decades, the most common challenges that forI see teachers struggle with involve sequencing—and, each of these problems eventually leads to burnout. The first challenge is that many teachers haven’t learned to properly sequence in their foundational program. They’ve learned to memorize and teach a sequence, but they haven’t learned how to construct their own sequences in a logical, progressive way. The second challenge is when that teachers can burn themselves out by constantly creating new sequences from week-to-week, or day-to-day. In this scenario, teachers often stress themselves out by putting pressure on themselves to constantly create new and different combinations, —ooften at the expense of being consistent with their students. The last sequencing struggle that leads to burnout is when teachers don’t completely understand the anatomical foundations for safe, successful, productive sequencing.

I created this program from years of experience to solve address all of these challenges—and, to help you create authentic, effective, logical sequences that make a positive impact in the lives of your students.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS TRAINING

This program will provide you with the tools to develop meaningful, authentic and effective sequences for your classes and personal practice. It will provide you with the knowledge, inspiration and technique to generate fresh, safe sequences that represent your voice and vision as a teacher. You will learn the anatomical rationale that underscores safe, effective sequencing for every postural category. You’ll minimize burnout and ensure that you have a larger, more consistent student population by avoiding the most common sequencing challenges that teachers face.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT EACH DAY OF THE TRAINING

You will get plenty of practice during this training. Each day starts with seated meditation followed by an accessible, hands-on anatomy discussion that illuminates the sequencing topic of the day. Then, you’ll launch into a strong, 2-hr hour vinyasa practice that explores the anatomy and sequencing concepts of the day. In the afternoon, you’ll break down the anatomical details further while discussing the sequencing principles for each of the pose categories. Each afternoon will conclude with another, shorter practice that illustrates the sequencing topic of the day.

THE TOPICS COVERED IN THIS PROGRAM

This program covers every aspect of sequencing, including the anatomical rationale that underscores safe and compelling sequences. This program covers the following topics:

DAY 1: Sequencing with Authenticity and Purpose

DAY 2: Turning Inward: Sequencing for Safe, Effective Forward Bends

Creating Space and Freedom: Sequencing for Efficient Backbends

DAY 3: Releasing Tension: Sequencing for Cleansing Twists

Taking Flight: Sequencing for Strong, Stable Arm Balances

  • You want to teach vinyasa yoga with a more structured, consistent method that helps your students refine and advance their practice.

  • You want to become a more successful, in-demand teacher by refining your skills and creating more consistent, compelling classes for your students.

Two Part Master Session: Balancing Strength and Flexibility in Vinyasa Yoga

Over 20 years ago I stopped playing sports, said good riddance to the gym, and rolled out my yoga mat for what would become a long romance with Vinyasa yoga. Since I couldn’t touch my toes, let alone do a backbend, my singular physical focus was to create more flexibility. I was strong, but I had no range of motion. Since the grass is always greener—and I didn’t truly understand that strength and flexibility are not mutually exclusive—I focused too heavily on flexibility. Then, like so many yoga practitioners, the over-stretch issues started showing up: sacro-iliac instability, sacro-lumbar strain, hamstring insertion pain, shoulder pain within deep flexion, and more. Oh yeah… then I turned 40 and I realized I couldn’t take strength and conditioning for granted any longer.

For the last few years, my practice has circled back to creating functional strength and stability within my body—without compromising my flexibility. I’ve learned that strengthening my body doesn’t decrease my range of motion when it’s done right. I’ve revised nearly every element of my Vinyasa yoga sequencing to create muscular balance throughout my body—especially the regions that are excessively vulnerable in Vinyasa yoga including the hamstrings, external rotators, sacro-iliac region, and shoulders. I’ve learned from my mistakes.

It might seem obvious that we need to balance strength and flexibility in Vinyasa yoga. But the reality is that we don’t. Not even close. This 2-part Master Session is the culmination of many years spent revising elements of Vinyasa yoga in order to create a more balanced and sustainable practice.

Morning Session: Strength + Stability for Your Core & Spine

Your core is much more than your abdominals. And, your abdominals are much more than those muscles that you dare to look at in the mirror. This dynamic vinyasa practice will create balanced, sustainable strength in all of the muscles that comprise your core and spine. In addition to enjoying a satisfying, strong flow practice, you’ll learn the following takeaways:

  • How to strengthen all of your abdominal muscles—not just the ones that fail to look back at you in the mirror.

  • How to strengthen your spinal muscles to create lasting comfort in your back and greater safety in your yoga practice.

  • Why the rotational muscles of your core are integral to functional strength and how to use them in your practice.

  • How to connect the strength of your core to the power of your hips and legs.

  • How core strength supports all your postures, including backbends, twists and arm balances.

Afternoon Session: Shoulders, Neck and Upper Back Flow

This dynamic flow will create balanced strength and flexibility in your shoulders, neck and upper-back. You’ll learn how subtle changes to your vinyasa practice can produce lasting, positive changes in your shoulders. In addition to enjoying a satisfyingly strong flow practice, you’ll learn the following takeaways:

  • How to strengthen your scapular muscles to improve your posture—and your chaturanga.

  • How to create balanced strength and flexibility in your entire shoulder girdle—minimizing the chance of pain and discomfort in your shoulders.

  • How to use your shoulders correctly in all postures where the arms reach overhead, such as Handstand, Forearm Balance and Upward-Facing Bow.

  • How to save your wrists from the long-term stress of vinyasa yoga.

  • How to relieve chronic discomfort in the shoulders, neck and upper back.
