Hi Priyah

Thanks for your reply.

I generally encourage students to soften the face, eyes, jaw and tongue ( allow the tongue to rest on the floor of the mouth) during asana . To "keep the posture off the face" while mainting drishti.

I see now where there is value in keeping the tongue gently placed against the palette as a point of focus.

I agree that there is a balance to be found between technique and simply doingand in my own practise I'm happy and willing to experiment and be guided by intuition. However when it comes to directing others I'm a little more anxious about "getting it right" and not giving misinformation! Embarassed

Thank for your direction on this.
