What makes for a great yoga sequence? It can often feel mysterious as to why a seemingly random mix of poses and techniques allow us to come away balanced in body, mind, and spirit. Understanding the reasoning behind why we do what we do allows students to take their practice into their own hands. Whether you are a student looking to gain a deeper understanding of yoga, you want to elevate your home yoga practice, or you are a teacher wanting to feel more confident getting creative and breaking out of your go to sequences, this workshop is for you.


  • An overview of some of the more popular lineages and their approach to sequencing
  • A discussion of the principles of Ishta Sequencing
  • An exploration of the concepts that guide smart sequencing on a physical and energetic level
  • A few mini practices sprinkled throughout the lecture so we can feel and embody what we are learning
  • To come away with a variety of well-balanced sequences, whether you have 15 minutes, a classic hour, or a luxurious hour and a half
Summer lecture Series: Continuing Education at ISHTA

For so many of us, our yoga practice has played a profound and crucial role in helping us get through this pandemic year. As we move into a new, post pandemic world, we are offering students a chance to gain a deeper understanding of yoga philosophy, and its tools and techniques – to help embrace the opportunities and challenges we all face, and to help us find meaning in this collective experience.

Each lecture session will be offered individually and as part of this series. In this course, you will explore the role of karma and how it effects our lives and the choices we make.

We’ll discuss how yoga and meditation can help us move through the force of karma with grace and ease. We will learn different meditations and pranayama techniques for different purposes, look into the health benefits of meditation, explore tantric philosophy, the yoga sutras, and ISHTA grounding mantras. In addition, you will develop a deeper understanding of ISHTA sequencing, and how to modify your practice based on your own imbalances or injuries. All of the lectures are taught by ISHTA Yogiraj’s and Senior ISHTA Trainers from around the world. This course is designed for students interested in a deeper study of yoga and expanding their tool box with practical techniques to meet life at this unique moment in time.
