Namaste,

I have been doing readings for several years and am now on my way to hopefully becoming a yoga teacher; However, as I continue my studies I came across a passage that has made me pause; the passage I refer to is not forcing your body if you feel strain. Now I have read some other texts which say that it is just the muscles getting a workout that is new, but in my textbook the author is advising that you pull back and let the pose happen gradually.

The real question then comes to when we future yoga teachers are helping a student with a pose and they refuse to listen to their bodies telling them "no" when we here from them "no it does not hurt" while trying to deepen their pose. How could we hopeful yoga teachers avoid this future problem, and is there really any real way to do so?
