Somewhere between comfort and being overwhelmed is your yoga practice.

Adjustment Clinic! I think great teachers are really good at knowing when to push us out of our comfort zone and knowing when to tell us to back off. All of my teachers have been very good at this. They have also always encouraged me to take responsibility for my own practice. You know better than anyone else when you are out of your comfort zone and you also know when you are too far out and things are overwhelming. Somewhere between comfort and being overwhelmed is your yoga practice. Some hands on adjustments are corrective but hands on adjustments don’t always need to be corrective. Some hands on adjustments help you deepen your pose in ways that you can’t do on your own.
