Namaskar Tomako,

You should avoid drinking too much coffe before making posts on this yoga forum, <img src=" title="Laughing" /> Well we agree about paying attention to your students in class. Although some students object to a physical assist from an old yogi. One of these days, i'll hire Brad Pitt to make the assists and we'll have a line of yoginis on the street. :idea:

To tell the truth, there is a balance of attention that yoga teachers need to have toward students during class time. One should demonstrate and then be watching students to see their form and alignment. too much assisting is a turn off to some students and the same can be said for too little assisting. It requires some balance and the ability to know what your students like.

Do find out who has objections to an assist before it becomes an issue.

Best Regards,
