1. Assignment

Discuss with your mentor:

Based on what we’ve covered so far, how do joints and their range of motion affect yoga poses?

Referring to the range of motion pictures above discuss with your mentor some ideas to bring ease to students in each pose if they are finding discomfort. Also noticing that each person’s body is different and will look different in each pose, discuss if there could be a modification offered or suggestion to allow for more space for the student.
