This group always intrigues me — the class is billed as a Power Yoga III, and yet atleast half the group is beginner.  Perhaps it’s the rule follower in me that says if something is billed as “advanced” and you’ve never done it before, then maybe you should try something else.  But then again, that’s probably why all these kids got into Harvard ::wink::.

It’s a fanstastic challenge for a teacher, though!  Making sure everyone is getting the most out of their practice be it their first or hundred and first is my goal in every class (besides getting my lefts and rights straight.)
