“Teaching goddesses Christine Wright and Cherylyn Lavagnino always think about class structure with a beginning, a middle and an end, considering what they want you to get out of class. That helps bring the right information into your body for a strong foundation.

Many modern teachers are so caught up in the phrase work that they forget about getting you to the point of being warm. And if you’re going to a job after class, you want everything organized in your body so you can do your job well. I look for teachers who remember this.”
