FIVE MAKE YOUR PRES­ENCE KNOWN BE­FORE YOU AP­PROACH A STU­DENT.

Yoga Journal - - Home Practice -

No one likes to be star­tled—es­pe­cially a yoga prac­ti­tioner who is deep in con­cen­tra­tion. If you are go­ing to per­form a hands-on ad­just­ment, let the stu­dent know where you are in re­la­tion to them, and never ap­proach from be­hind. “I al­ways stay in the stu­dent’s line of sight,” says Sil­vas. “If their gaze is down, I put a foot near them or give the class a ver­bal cue so they know where I am in re­la­tion to them, and that my in­ten­tion is to give an ad­just­ment.”
