Yoga Teacher Training - Making Yoga Classes FLow

Increasing Class Quality with Cutting Edge Flows - by Mark Giubarelli

Studies have shown participants greatly prefer yoga classes that flow well. This means that the transitions from one yoga posture to the other are smooth and feel good.

Teaching highly effective yoga classes involves well blended yoga exercises that challenge the muscle strength, endurance and flexibility safely.

Flow yoga generally applies to classes that move through many yoga postures in blended sequences.

When choosing classes that flow well one must take into consideration Yoga posture that blend well and complement each other.

Blending backbends and lying spinal twists can sometimes be a nice combination.

It is important to progress gradually from a simple movement or pose to a more complex. This is so that practitioners will be able to follow new flows. Wait until practitioners show signs of mastering a yoga flow before adding and progressing further.

Here are some examples of yoga sequences that flow well together. Use them in your yoga classes and modify them if you need to.
