Yoga Teacher Tips
This is a very advanced yoga posture. It can still be taught in class. The best way to approach hard postures while keeping other students happy is to offer postures that are progressively difficult offering those who are less flexible the option of staying in the previous posture while guiding more advanced students further. This way everybody is happy and a multi-level class can be taught.
