To learn more about your body needs, sign up for our Series of Workshops, Master Your Pose, you will be learn more about correct aligment for your body.In any yoga class only your body is the real guide for you. Listening to your body and honoring its signals is key to a safe practice. If something doesn't feel right, ease out of the pose. If something feels like a strain, you're pushing too hard. If you hold breaths, you're forcing too much. If on any point your body feels like it needs a break, just stop, take a break or go in child's pose.
Always feel comfortable, whatever pose you're doing. The stretching needs to feel nice, not as a strong strain or pull. So, as your instructor says: "Listen to your body" she/he really means that. Instructor can guide you and demonstrate how to progress with any pose, but it's up to you how far you can go.
