10 RULES OF HANDS-ON AD­JUST­MENTS

Yoga Journal - - Home Practice -

If you’re a yoga teacher, hands-on ad­just­ments can still be an im­por­tant tool to help stu­dents cor­rect poor align­ment and ease into their fullest ex­pres­sion of a pose. “Some­times, no mat­ter how many times or how many dif­fer­ent ways you ver­bally ex­plain a pos­ture or ac­tion, it’s just not as ef­fec­tive as a good phys­i­cal ad­just­ment,” says vet­eran teacher Maty Ezraty. Here, yoga teach­ers around the coun­try share their rules for hands-on ad­just­ments. And if you’re not a teacher, th­ese guide­lines will help you un­der­stand what’s ap­pro­pri­ate—and what’s not—in pub­lic yoga classes.
