eight KNOW EXACTLY WHAT NEEDS ADJUSTING.
Don’t know what you need to address? Then stay away, says Carter. “Only approach a student and put your hands on her if you know exactly where your hands are going to go and what they’re going to do.” Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine, agrees, adding that if you feel uncertain or nervous, your students will pick up on that vibe. “Go into a hands-on assist with confidence,” she says. “Your touch should be firm. Light, floaty hands can give a student mixed messages.”
