Hello All,

Just wanted to say that what Paul said is really the bottom line. On occasion when I have a student who complains or says "they hate a specific asana", I try to use humor to diffuse the situation. When the time comes for class again and we are doing that particular posture, I will smile at them and say "Here's your favorite pose":) They always smile and laugh about it. For the most part, all of my students are gracious and love coming to class. Again, the rules have to be laid out and those who are not happy will leave. I had two students who felt meditation was a "waste of time". They no longer come to my classes. However, they are two of my dearest friends. :)

Best of luck to you and remember to keep the passion you started out with!
