PRAISE FOR The Yoga Sequencing Deck
"A comprehensive, timely and much-needed work on the important art of sequencing. Mark's well-researched and systematically laid-out book is certain to become an instant classic and a reliable resource for all teachers of yoga asana, both beginning and experienced. It is essential reading for any teacher training program that wishes to be considered state-of-the art."
– Leslie Kaminoff, yoga teacher, co-author, Yoga Anatomy
Yoga Sequencing is a great service to the yoga community as it covers the power of sequencing that all teachers can benefit from as intelligent sequencing is the embodiment of the elegant design and unfolding of nature which Mark understands and loves.
– Shiva Rea, Founder, Prana Vinyasa Yoga
Yoga Sequencing addresses fundamental questions that yoga teachers face in designing classes. While making clear that the ultimate source of guidance comes from one’s own yoga experience, Stephens untangles the inter-relations of yoga postures and provides insightful mapping principles for linking them into effective classes. This unique, practical book empowers yoga teachers to be their best in working with a diverse array of students.
– Joel Kramer, co–author with Diana Alstad, The Guru Papers
Jai Ho Mark Stephens! Mark has made another enormous contribution to the field of yoga teaching. This book is a deep well that will nourish aspiring as well as seasoned yoga teachers and students. It provides a wealth of practical techniques and invaluable insights, filling a vast gap in the yoga literature. I highly recommend using it as a resource.
