Last Thursday, i came in contact with a person who has been doing Yoga for 10 years. She was under the guidance of a “so called” yoga teacher cum engineer. He conducts classes for about 60 to 100 people at any one time, free of charge.
She has been suffering from back ache for the last 5 years. Each time she practices yoga and the day after, she feels pain. I noticed that her lips have also started turning dark (not from smoking or drinking). If you have been practicing for such a length of time, you should not feel any pain at all.
Closely examining her postures, i realised that her alignments of postures have not been corrected and the teacher have not noticed this. Sadly, without corrections and proper alignments, her back ache has been aggravated. Now, her nerves are also giving her problems and leading to excruciating pain.
Please take note of instances of such and correct your students’ postures as soon as you come in contact with them.
