When content of instruction has been defined, it is possible to select the timing of delivery. The following three forms of delivery are used to affect the experience of the asana.

Before going to the asana. Deliver the points you wish to teach before the students enter the asana. Beginners are often given the points before because they cannot hold asanas for long and need to know what they are to apply.

On the movement into the asana. Deliver the points you wish to teach as the students go to the asana. Teaches the student to coordinate their actions, their body and their attention.

In the asana. Put the students into the asana and then deliver the points. This skill is used for experienced students and requires that they know the asana, stay longer, are stronger and can adjust the asana.
