Yoga has become incredibly, worldwide popular, but we still can witness some mistakes in its sessions and teachings. I can feel the importance of providing the correct training, teaching to students, and educating them as they pass the yoga art on to other living beings


Overview of the 5 most common mistakes in yoga classes:
  1. Beginning class with slow, static poses, and long holds. Too many setups or instructions, details. It is better to keep them for later on
  2. Seated forward bends at the beginning. Later it is safer
  3. Performing backbends without thigh stretches before backbends. It is important to open all the body parts required for back bending
  4. Immediately follow forward folds after backbends, especially after Cakrasana/Urdhva Dhanurasana. For some students, it could lead to back pain and spasms. Instead, we can bring the knees to the chest or rest the feet on the ground. We can also perform Supta Baddha Konasana, Supta Parivartanasana, or Jathara Parivartanasana, to neutralize the spine and continue with rolls from side to side, to loosing up our backs
  5. Breaking the rules without knowing why
