Sequencing for Routine and Variety

I had a great question this week from a recent yoga teacher training graduate about sequencing for her new classes, and it got me to thinking about how we sequence our own home practice each day, week, month, and year.  What informs our decisions about what to practice, when to practice, and how often we should do the same practice or how often we should change it up?  Whethe..read more
