If you want a stu­dent to be more en­gaged in an ac­tion, try sim­ply touch­ing the area that needs at­ten­tion. For ex­am­ple, in Adho Mukha Svanasana (Down­ward-Fac­ing Dog Pose), tap the outer up­per arms to help a stu­dent re­al­ize her up­per arm bones could be more ex­ter­nally ro­tated, in­stead of ro­tat­ing them your­self, says Sarah Ezrin, a teacher at Yo­gaWorks. Un­like a more in­volved ad­just­ment where the teacher makes the ac­tion hap­pen for the stu­dent, tap­ping or point­ing in this way brings aware­ness to a mus­cle that may be sleepy.
