What are yoga adaptations?

The form of any pose can be modified depending on what you are trying to accomplish. This is called pose adaptation. Adaptation means altering the form of a pose to maximize its function. Pose adaptation is one of the most effective tools that yoga teachers have to achieve very specific structural, energetic, and mental-emotional effects. The same pose can be used for a wide variety of purposes, which makes your practice more precise and effective.
