Things Not To Say When Teaching…

by on Apr.25, 2009, under Yoga

Here’s a couple I heard in a class last weekend (and no, I’m not making this up):

“Lock the knee”
“Do this exercise every day until we see each other again. If you don’t want to do this, maybe you should find another yoga teacher.”

Pretty cool, huh? The first suggestion increases the chance of injury, the second is just flat out hostile, demanding and intimidating, all at once. This actually gives me hope that I will be an ok teacher, if only because I’d never contemplate saying stuff like this…
