Support, adjust and realign.

We got down into supporting, adjusting and realigning our classmates. Before getting into any physical contact it is important to get a verbal agreement from all students to protect ourselves from being accused of molestation. This verbal agreement also gives me more confidence in supporting the students in a professional way.

We have to teach our classmates three sets of Surya Namaska A&B. We have to give breathing cues, verbal and physical adjustments. I lost count of the number of sets because I was too focused in giving the right cues and appropriate adjustments. I made a few mistakes of calling the wrong asana names. It was a really good experience to teach and lead our peers to have a closer experience to leading a real class. So many factors to consider when it comes to leading a class, the way we lead, stand, talk, adjust our students and manage our time. We will also need to be really flexible with our sequence based on our student proficiency level.
