« Life Coaching Moment - Client Question: What do I do when I can't take action? | Main | A Coaching Moment: You Have to Say Yes! »



I agree with everything you wrote except the last sentence, "Trust me, your students won't even notice!"

Students absolutely notice; at the very least, they notice on an unconscious level. If I'm off and give an adjustment, the student will notice. If I'm really off and walking the room, students will definitely react to me. The same is true when I am on. Your students will notice, they may not always realize what they have noticed but they will notice.

As you mention, this is a practice of ahimsa, which at its core is the practice of love. It is also a practice of satya, the truth. Practicing ahimsa and satya make us more approachable, more human.

Thank you for the article.

Jai Bhagwan.

Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I completely agree with what you said and thank you for giving me a chance to clarify.

I completely agree that people will notice, whether consciously or unconsciously, if you do not honor your own energy.

Staying within the boundaries of what we are capable of doing is one of the most important pieces of the student-teacher relationship. When we do honor our energy and only do what we can for our students and still remain in a deep state of love, they won't notice if you aren't walking around and adjusting them.

For our students and ourselves, it is more important to be in your heart than off your mat.

I have enjoyed sharing ideas with you! Thank you,
