Yoganotes – Sketching Yoga Stick Figures – PDF version (English)
How to sketch yoga postures and sequences
Learn how to sketch simple yoga 'stick figures' to capture and plan your yoga sequences. This guide is for anybody who is studying, practicing or teaching yoga and who wants to be able to take simple visual notes for their practice, classes or teacher training course.
This guide presents a simple, easy-to-understand system for sketching yoga postures that can be quickly learned, even without any drawing or sketching skills.
The first part explains the basic principles of sketching the human body as a simple stick figure and shows all common variations for each body part (legs and feet, arms and hands, torso, etc).
The second part presents step-by-step explanations for sketching more than 80 asanas (and their variations) with space and sketch along and practice each pose.
I used sketching and visual notes extensively during my own yoga teacher training with my teacher Surinder Singh in Rishikesh (India). I also regularly sketch out sequences for my own practice and to share with friends.
Ideal for viewing on your tablet, phone or desktop computer. Optimised for self-printing.
