i began doing yoga in 2003, and i was taking a class that was pretty simplified, and introductory, which i really liked, becuase i didnt feel pressured.

however, i also watched a yoga show in the O! Oxygen network, that did very advanced moves, i tried my best to keep up, but while they did things that were more advanced, he always gave other options of ways to feel the stretch if you can't go into the full pose. I liked this, because while i could immitate them, and do it in a modified way, i could see what my ultimate goal was, and what it should look like.

this helped me view yoga as somthing that i could expand upon, in my practice physicall, and medidatively as well - getting into the mindset of being able to do these poses and not forcing them.

i therefore, feel it is a good thing ot present challenging poses that you may know only a few students can do - but to tell them only to do the modified form if they can't reach the full pose- and also to warn them about the consequences of not listening to their bodies. this will help them become more in tune with their inner voices, and restrictions, while also giving them a guide (the example of others), to see where they are headed and what their pose should try to look like, in the future.
