These other responses have given some good tips! I believe that every instructor will find a style unique to him or her as they go along. It just takes time to “settle” into yourself as a teacher, but some of the best advice I’ve ever gotten is to “share what you know, not teach what you’ve learned.” A great phrase to ponder in meditation for sure. ;-D
Sequencing definitely is not something to be done at random; when you enter class, always have some sort of goal in mind you wish to achieve with your students. This goal, be it to open the chest, explore hip mobility, or focus on a certain chakra, is really the driving force behind the asana you’ll select, and depending which you select, you will arrange and build them as a sequence progressively, staying true to your goal and staying in tune with how your students receive it.
Sequencing may seem daunting at first, but with time and a thoughtful approach it really becomes a natural thing. Best of luck along your journey, and let us know how things are going!
