This fun and informative weekend workshop is an exploration of the art of organic sequencing (krama) with an emphasis on finding ways to hold the pieces of sequence together with the thread of theme (sutra). As a beautiful compliment to the mental baskets of creating a sequence, Shala will give an introduction to marma points (marmani) and instruction for giving hands-on adjustments (sparshna) that are marma specific. You will come away from this weekend with the tools and inspiration to take your teaching to the next level!
