Study and reflect
- How would you guide a group to relax and release any unnecessary tension in the Supine pose?
- How do you guide the group out of the supine pose?
- When is it appropriate for a savasana and when is it not?
- How would you guide a group differently depending on the time of the day, location and student's need?
Knowing the structure of the class and demonstrating correct technique with each pose are both fundamental steps towards becoming a successful coach. However, it is equally, if not more important to adapt poses to the needs of the students.

It is something you will cultivate and develop with experience and reflection.
