The Art of Sequencing (for dedicated students and teachers of yoga)
Every pose is in its optimal state when it can be embodied with equal parts of stability and ease (sthira / sukha), but all to often weget bogged down with contradictory alignment cues and actions that leave us overwhelmed and confused, both physically and mentally. In this compelling immersion, through lecture, analysis, applied anatomy, prop work, and experiential learning, Noah will offer a powerful and logical, step-by-step process for understanding, practicing and teaching optimal asana alignment. This session is geared toward dedicated students and yoga teachers eager to understand more fully the applications of anatomy, kinesiology and biomechanics behind asana alignment, sequencing strategies and pose improvement. Bring a copy of Light on Yoga, a notebook and any anatomy or other asana resources you may like to reference.

“I would definitely recommend this program, and I already have. It was top notch in quality and quantity of material, as well as in support and openness and communication. Noah’s unique experience has produced an unparalleled leader, facilitator, and guide. Lessons learned in our training modules have extended far beyond the scope of yoga into life and relating to others in a more effective manner. I received SO MUCH, this training goes above and beyond for any student wanting to deepen their skills, gain confidence, and reach a new level of mastery in yoga.”
“Noah is inspiring and exhibits an unparalleled mastery of teaching. For some time now, I have been contemplating the notion, “be impeccable with your word.” I tried to think of people who embody this and would often come up empty until I met Noah. Noah is careful with his words, exhibits accuracy, accountability, and thoughtful articulation. These are important qualities in an effective leader. When Noah speaks, people listen – and they take it to heart. Along with that, he also embodies creativity, playfulness, humor, sensitivity, and ardor. All of these qualities make for a very well-rounded, inspiring leader and I feel honored to have received guidance and to have learned such a great deal, not just about yoga, but about life.”
