One of the most important aspects of being a yoga teacher is caring for the safety and wellbeing of your students.
It’s a good idea to ask your students before class gets underway if anyone is dealing with any injuries, or to have a quiet conversation with you once class is underway.
Any great yoga teacher will provide a range of options and modifications for any asana, especially if it’s a more advanced posture.
Keep a Watchful Eye
If you notice that a student is on the brink of an injury or is in a dangerous position, gently approach them to give them a modification or to help ease them back into safety.
Keep it Light!
