Namaskar Justin,

Excellent point - Paul. The day we stop warning our students about pushing is the day we should retire from teaching yoga classes. All students should realize the class safety guidelines are structured for their welfare. If they find it redundant, I'm sorry, but they're not going to injure themselves in my class. There's always a class down the road where a yoga instructor can insult them, jump on them, kick them, and the room temperature is over 100 degrees. Many of them puke in the parking lot. Then they come to my classes and stay. But if they crave abuse and choose to stay in a torture chamber that's cool with me. I help yoga students to be physically and mentally balanced. Those who like to be abused must like the pain, but it's not happening in my classes. Students have a choice - listen to common sense or go off the deep end. I'll help anyone with a brain, but if they're a twisted pup they can attract abusive people in every facet of life. I realize that's the extreme end of it, but most of us want to help and that attracts a yoga student who wants your help.
