Are there poses you used to love and teach, but have recently stopped teaching for some reason?? It turns out we all have a long list of poses that we find ourselves leaving out of our classes for a multitude of reasons. We recently had a super interesting conversation inside The Mentor Sessions Sangha all about this! And on the podcast today I’m sharing an edited sneak peak of that discussion to get your creative juices flowing!
In this episode, we discussed:
- our priorities and choices in teaching
- the importance of getting clear on the intended benefits of poses
- varying perspectives on poses like headstand, arm balances, and lotus pose
- why personal preference is a great reason to avoid certain poses AND why it’s so important to understand the reason behind those preferences
