Are they ready to advance?

February 19, 2014    BY Greg Capitolo

Develop the ability to see your students skillfully. Begin by assessing a student’s body in a basic pose. Using the bridge pose, for example, you can determine the student’s readiness for the shoulder stand and further postures to advance the student’s practice. Greg evaluates various students in bridge pose to see if they are ready to move on to more advanced backbends or inversions.
