The Science of Sequencing
Welcome to our online Science of Sequencing Course.
A sequence of yoga poses should be a journey that unfolds with purpose, intelligence, and harmony. Many 200hour trainings will have students memorize a specific sequence or format, without providing the tools required to then build a sequence on their own.
Yoga asana was never intended to be about finding a particular alignment for each pose, but rather it is about finding the best alignment for the individual, in order to offer the greatest energetic benefits. There is so much more to sequencing than just throwing poses together that might seemingly “fit”, it is basically a choreography where certain movements go together, and others do not.
This course is 100% online and self paced!
As yoga instructors, it is our responsibility to deliver sequences that not only feel incredible in the body, but enable union between the body, mind and spirit of each individual student. This course is designed for current, or future yoga teachers, who want to learn how to create intelligent and unique sequences that offer space for transformation.
This Yoga Alliance accredited course is led by one of our senior teachers, Lisa Nelson (E-RYT 500 & YACEP). Once you have completed the course, and if you are a registered yoga teacher, you may apply these 20 hours towards the Yoga Alliance’s continuing education requirements.

Welcome to this online Training! My name is Lisa.
I was never very athletic as a child or teen, and when I first began my yogic journey I couldn’t even touch my toes. I fell in love with the physical challenge provided by Vinyasa Yoga, and after practicing for several years, I eventually set-off to India to complete my first 200hr TTC in Traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa. I left that training feeling completely unprepared to sequence even just for my own personal practice, let alone something I could guide others through.
With the feeling that there was so much more to learn, I continued studying as much and as often as I could. Completing several other trainings in different categories both in person and online. I love the idea of online trainings; their adaptability, availability and convenience mean that I can have more than one on the go at any given time, and I often do.
I have many teachers to whom I am infinitely grateful, for the sharing of their knowledge and consistent support and guidance along my journey. This course is a culmination of their insights, practiced and cultivated into what I truly believe will serve the multitude of students who finish a YTT and feel similarly unprepared to begin creating sequences that are intelligent, creative and transformational.
