Oh Rosemary. Such profoundly helpful and sensitive sharing of information here. I have for a long time been very reticent to do more than offer verbal cues, or very light indications of adjustments to my students. I have had an experience where someone adjusting me caused a slight injury. And I've had an experience where my proffered adjustment triggered a student. It has lead me to keep a certain distance...
Kate, I am so happy to hear this is helpful for you. Adjusting is such a phenomenal tool and supremely beneficial for students- if we can learn to offer them wisely and safely, it's amazing! I'm sorry to hear of your slight injury, this happens far too often. And I understand about triggering a student, it happens too. I hope these tools will help you feel more confident adjusting others. Enjoy.
I'm happy those spoke to you, Marlo. They're some of my favorites too. ; )

So beautiful to see your emotions come up when expressing the gratitude you feel at being a yoga teacher. You’re right, it is a privilege and an honor. Thank you for the genuine nature of all you shared. It was wonderful to receive.
Apologies for my delayed reply, Lily . I'm heartened that this spoke to you. And honored by your reply.
