When giving physical cues and adjustments in a yoga class, it is important to keep the following general principles in mind:

  1. Always ask for permission: Before giving any physical adjustment, it is important to ask the student’s permission. This shows respect for the student’s personal boundaries and allows them to feel comfortable and safe in the class.
  • Be mindful of the student’s body: When giving an adjustment, it is important to be mindful of the student’s body and any injuries or limitations they may have. Adjustments should never cause pain or discomfort and should be done with sensitivity and care.
  • Use clear and concise language: When giving verbal cues, it is important to use clear and concise language that the student can easily understand. Avoid using jargon or complex instructions that may confuse the student.
  • Demonstrate the adjustment: When giving a physical adjustment, it can be helpful to first demonstrate the adjustment on yourself or on another student to give the student a clear understanding of the movement.
  • Provide feedback and encouragement: When giving an adjustment, it is important to provide feedback and encouragement to the student. Let them know when they are doing something well and provide suggestions for improvement in a positive and constructive way.
  • Respect the student’s boundaries: It is important to always respect the student’s boundaries and only provide adjustments that are appropriate and necessary. Avoid giving adjustments that are too forceful or that make the student feel uncomfortable.

By following these general principles, yoga teachers can provide safe and effective physical cues and adjustments that help their students deepen their practice and achieve their goals in a supportive and respectful environment.
