4 Be gra­cious if a stu­dent says no to an ad­just­ment.

Yoga Journal - - Home Practice -

If you place your hands on a stu­dent and they say “stop” or “no,” don’t get of­fended. “I am com­pletely happy when a stu­dent tells me to back off,” says Mary Tay­lor, a long­time Ash­tanga Yoga teacher. “I make it clear to my stu­dents, in a very pos­i­tive way, that it is per­fectly fine to say no. Then, af­ter class, I might talk to them to try to get a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of why.”
