This blog looks at the Conversation between Yoga Teacher and Student.
Yoga Teacher: Good morning. Welcome to class. How are you feeling today?
Student: Good morning. I’m feeling a bit tense in my shoulders.
Yoga Teacher: No problem. We’ll be focusing on shoulder-opening poses today to help release that tension. Are you familiar with a downward-facing dog?
Student: Yes, I’ve done that one before.
Yoga Teacher: Great, we’ll start with that. Remember to keep your core engaged, and your hips lifted as you press back into the pose. Take your time and listen to your body.
Student: Okay, I’ll try.
Yoga Teacher: Remember to breathe deeply and try to relax your mind. Yoga is not just about physical poses but also about finding inner peace and stillness.
Student: I’ll try to remember that.
Yoga Teacher: Let’s move on to warrior II. Keep your front knee bent and your back leg straight. Reach out through your front hand and backhand.
Student: This feels really good. I can feel the stretch in my legs and chest.
Yoga Teacher: That’s great! Remember to keep your hips facing forward and your gaze over your front hand.
Student: Okay, got it.
Yoga Teacher: Now, let’s move into a seated forward bend. Keep your spine straight and fold forward, reaching for your toes. Remember to breathe deeply and try to relax your mind.
Student: This is harder than I thought it would be.
Yoga Teacher: It’s okay. Remember to take your time and listen to your body. If you need to, you can use a strap or a block to help you reach forward.
Student: Thanks, I’ll try that.
Yoga Teacher: Now, let’s lie down for savasana, the final relaxation pose. Close your eyes, and let your body completely relax. Let go of any tension or stress, and focus on your breath.
Student: That was a great class, thank you.
Yoga Teacher: You’re welcome. Remember to practice regularly and listen to your body.
