I’ve been meaning to write a blog about this website for over a year now. Like me, Olga Kabel is a yoga therapist who has been certified through the American Viniyoga Institute. She is making huge contributions in the yoga world. Not only has she developed one of the best yoga sequence drawing tools I’ve seen, she also offers free videos and virtual yoga privates via Skype.
What I really love about her Sequence Whiz site, though, are the articles. Most of them are not only Viniyoga friendly—they are Viniyoga accurate and commonsensical, meaning that her articles promote safe and sane yoga practices that are likely to help, not injure, practitioners. I often share her blog articles with my teacher training students. Maybe someday she’ll write a textbook I can use in my teacher training!
In the meantime, here are four great examples of the articles you can find there:
- Rolling up from a standing forward bend can damage your spine.
- Too many asymmetrical poses can create sacroiliac joint issues
- Twists vs forward bends as compensation postures – who wins?
- 3 steps to making any yoga pose more effective: why do we repeat the pose before we hold it
Whether you’re a yoga teacher, a yoga student, or simply someone interested in body mechanics, I highly recommend that you check out Olga’s website and sign up for her bimonthly newsletter. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the professionalism, depth, and accuracy of the information she provides. And the graphics are simply out of this world!
Check it out and let me know what you think.
