6 Use ad­just­ments to help a stu­dent back off.

Yoga Journal - - Home Practice -

Rather than view­ing hands-on ad­just­ments as a means to help a stu­dent go deeper into a pose, think about it as an ef­fec­tive way to help a stu­dent find in­te­gra­tion and sta­bi­liza­tion, or to back out of a pose if they have a lot of mo­bil­ity, says Carter. “If I see stu­dents go­ing too far into a Wide-Legged Stand­ing For­ward Bend, for ex­am­ple, I will use my hands to help them back out of the bend,” she says. “This can re­ally help them pro­tect their ham­strings and find more sta­bil­ity in the pelvis.”
