Exercise 8. Teaching and adjustment Copy

Identify the asana you will teach and three points with two adjustments (A&B) that will work to clarify the points you are teaching.

  • Side 1:  Teach the points without physical adjustments;
  • Side 2:  Move off your mat, teach the points and apply adjustment A;
  • Side 3:  Teach the points from your mat and observe;
  • Side 4:  Get off your mat, teach the points and make adjustment B.
Exercise for trainee/apprentice group session

Then the second person takes the volunteers through the asana with the points and adjustment B is given.
