I started yoga in July and now doing 3 classes per week plus youtube yoga on other days.
However, instead of improving, I feel like I am getting worse.
For instance this week I have been to 3 classes with 3 different teachers. Each one of them moved me during poses in order to improve my position (I guess). This didn't happen when I started. I also feel wobbly in some positions that I thought I could do before!
I think sometimes positions like warrior or triangle can seem fairly easy and straightforward when you're new to yoga. As you practice you learn the fine tuning and more precise alignment, which can be much harder to get right. Could it be that do you think?
I never adjust students if they seem very new - they tend to find it offputting! But once they seem to have a good grasp of the basics of the pose, i'll start to move them to help find deeper/more appropriate alignment. You're probably at that stage now!
Often i'll teach poses with a specific aim in mind and so i'll adjust students so they feel it more where i want them to - it's a pose you know and i want it to feel different!
Feeling wobbly is more to do with your mood, concentration, energy levels, what you've eaten, and where in the sequence the pose it taught than you being 'good' or 'bad' so don't worry about that!
One of my teachers never adjusts in the beginners' class - even for more experienced people - unless someone is doing something very wrong, and then it will be more a verbal rather than a physical adjustment.
The other two teachers I have regularly do adjust the more experienced people, and it is generally regulars whose capabilities they know or people who are obviously more experienced. I took starting to be adjusted more as a compliment!
