Bikram Yoga teacher plays a vital role in your practice. An efficient teacher makes practicing Bikram yoga a breeze. Though I believe that every teacher brings something wonderful in your life, here is a list of habits exhibited by teachers that can ruin your 90 minutes of yoga practice.
Keeping the room hot as hell
Some teachers are obsessed with raising the temperature of the room. They forget that Bikram Yoga is not only about the temperature. Once the room is heated to the desired level, the teacher should focus her energy on the asanas instead of the temperature dial. I would rather do some Yoga at the recommended temperature than spend time just lying down in the crazy heat.
Suffocation at its best It is important to let some fresh air in the room at frequent intervals during the 90-minute session. It relieves the students of the uncomfortable stuffy feeling and rejuvenates them. This mild relief helps you continue with your asanas. But some teachers want you to get your pay's worth. You wanted heat, here you go. They refuse to let any fresh air comfort you.
It is the teacher's responsibility to ensure the practice of all the 26 asanas and two breathing exercises. Some teachers don't pace their asanas. They take their sweet time to finish first few and then rush you through the remaining postures.
