GENERAL REMINDERS

  • "Power" in front of something means on your toes

  • "Split" in front of something means legs are split (one in front and one behind)

  • Helpful hints:

    • Always start on the same side - pick a side and stick with it

    • Ankle marches are just a thinking point, they are not an exercise

    • Always show the modification, don’t just say it

    • We recommend instructing with a lower weight because you will be doing a lot of the workout with them

  • We try not to say "butt" - we say "seat" or "glute" or something else. Think...if you wouldn’t want a little kid to say it then don’t say it

  • Make sure you do NOT say “tuck” when we are talking about our hips - say “tilt” or “scoop”

  • We want them to work hard, but we never want to say they can "get skinny" or "lose weight." While our classes may do that, our goal here is not to tell them to get “bikini ready” but instead to focus on their workout and focus on being true to who they are.

  • If you want to challenge them you can say “push it to your max” or something along those lines, but we always want to make sure we are reiterating being true to you and your body since everyone’s body is different.

  • If the class is on their mats at their stations but not using their straps, make sure you pull a mat out to the center of the room so you can do the work there so everyone can see you.

  • Make sure to only use yoga straps for stretching at the end if your mats are in islands.
