Unless you have some experience as a dancer or dance instructor, mirroring probably doesn’t come easily to you. Somehow your left becomes right, right becomes left, and more often than not, the signals get crossed somewhere along the line and you end up getting tongue-tied (have you tried mirroring Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana? What a nightmare). It’s a skill that requires concentration and strong mind-body connection, but also one that helps to create an additional opportunity for your students to learn visually and understand how best to enter and exit a pose safely. Like all teaching skills, practice makes perfect, but here are some neat little tried and tested tips from yoga teachers that can make mirroring a little less frustrating.
