Creative Sequencing for Teachers and Elevating Your Home Practice

  • Nature Sanctuary 2021 West Division Street Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

With Wade Gotwals

This workshop will give you the tools to develop your own personally designed home practice and will give teachers new sequencing techniques to lead a mindful vinyasa flow class with clarity and creativity!


Together we will journey through and break down various Vinyasa Flow segments. We will be exploring sequencing that will examine opening the body as interconnected muscle groups. Through this process we can target specific muscles and learn to open them safely and create our own effective sequencing. We will also focus on creating smooth and efficient transitions between poses elevating the quality of our flow. Lastly, as we move deeper into asana we will focus on the relationship to breath, mind awareness and subtle adjustment techniques to really dive into the specified area. Teachers and students will also have an opportunity to practice their own sequence with a partner and get feedback. We all find ourselves repeating patterns in our life as well as in our personal yoga practice and in the classes we teach, lets break up those patterns! Come enjoy this opportunity to elevate your practice or teachings! (You may want to bring a notepad and pen)

This workshop is in conjunction with teacher training, so space is limited. Sign up today to reserve your spot!

Wade Gotwals found Yoga in the late 90s during his travels and since then has made it his passion to discover alternative techniques for furthering growth of mind and spirit and for healing the body. He is teaching internationally in Asia, Europe, South America and the U.S. and is always excited about sharing his new discoveries through yoga. Wade teaches a unique Vinyasa flow fusion of styles derived from his travels and from the inspirations of teachers like Dharma Mittra and Rusty Wells. His certifications in Ashtanga/Vinyasa, Thai and Intuitive Massage, and Touch for Health added with his meditation and Advaita studies in India with Ramesh Balsekar have given him many gifts to be thankful for and share with others. His teaching style is structured by at the same time very playful and always gives options of openness, depth and strength so that everyone will be challenged and can share their energy. The Advaitic principles of oneness and non separation are the dharmic principles to his teachings. In his classes, workshops and retreats you can expect a creative vinyasa flow based practice, with individual attention to challenging poses deconstructed so everyone is able to approach at their level. Each workshop also showcases some of the other limbs of yoga whether it be meditation, dharma, bhakti or even Thai yoga. Wade strives to find interesting ways to keep others inspired and connected and receiving inspiration from others is what keeps his love for yoga alive.
