Will my teacher push me?

It’s definitely a good thing to push students to their best and to get the most out of them, but it is obviously just as important to make sure everyone knows they can take each session at their own pace, sitting out for 5 minutes of the warm-up if it gets a little too much.

One last thing that really should be mentioned, is to not feel at all embarrassed by sitting out and taking a breather. The chances are, everyone else there has certainly done it once or twice in the past, so you can be sure no-ones looking!
