Episode 236: Why sequencing is your most important skill as a modern yoga teacher

Ninety minutes is a really long time to stand in front of a group and talk, no matter how much you know about the topic!

That’s why having a clear plan is key for yoga teachers. (Because, as Jason points out, if you don’t have some sort of plan you’ll either go off on random tangents or run out of things to say.)
