Let's face it ─ yoga instructors are not superhumans with the ability to monitor 20 odd students at the same time. Although most instructors try to do the rounds to check on form and alignment, they wouldn't always be able to spot your mistakes at the exact moment you make them.
If your posture is not right or the wrong muscles are activated, you've got a higher chance of injuries, mostly in the wrists, neck, knees and back.
Even if you know certain poses like the back of your hand, there's always room for improvement, so you can go a little deeper and push a little harder to get a better workout.
Check out some of the most common mistakes in yoga, and how to fix them.
