Many instructions that are given produce varying responses and results in class participants. This can be a result of individual interpretation of the meaning of such instructions, or, maybe for the sake of brevity, a hint actually referring to a range of actions or movements.

Interpreting yoga instructions helps us gain clarity on what certain instructions mean, what the intended postural action is.
