The more you plan a sequence, the less you rely on pictograms.

I've put together only eight asana sequences to date and with each one the timing of the flow has gotten easier and more intuitive.

I took a long time to plan my first sequence, nervous about timing I created a spreadsheet that would help me calculate how long the flow would be as I planned it out pose by pose. I wrote all about it on my other blog in case you're curious.

Now it seems that re-working a previous asana sequence is simpler. By changing a few poses of the flow and how the class begins and ends, I can ensure that any returning students aren't going to get the exact same sequence.

It will be interesting to go back to my beginnings in several months or years and see how I agonized over the timing of songs in a playlist or even the need to write out the full sequence plan and have it with me when teaching.
