Four centuries ago there was a Tibetan master named the First Panchen Lama. He learned the traps that can ruin our meditation, and he learned how to beat these traps. He described all this in a book called The Devil Debates an Angel, a very funny and profound argument between the Devil and an Angel, inside of one's person's mind.

In the Yoga of Lady Niguma, we purposely work up the chakras from the bottom, rather than attacking for example the heart chakra first, directly. This is because the heart has three turns of the two side channels choking it, and is therefore the most difficult of the knots to open. We are advised in the scriptures to go at this chakra by approaching it from the bottom, opening up the easier, lower chakras one by one, in successive order, bringing the prana up towards the heart chakra gradually, and then opening it.

The holy grail of a spiritual life is to reach a state of total love for every single person and creature that we encounter, throughout the day, every day. How the Buddhas of the past first reached this love themselves is described in many of the sutras. It is said, for example, that the current Buddha first perfected this love in the realms of hell.

In a lifetime many millions of lives before he was born into this world, he took birth there amidst the hellfires, compelled like an ox to pull a huge wagon across the burning ground, mercilessly whipped by guards of the hell, yoked with a team of other hellbeings. And it is said that he gave up his life there, in the hells, to protect another from the whips.

But how love began is found in another sutra, called The Different Forms of Karma (Karma Vibhanga)

The reason to be a yoga teacher is to help others be happy. And we can’t do that if we haven’t been able to make ourselves happy. So your work is cut out for you: achieve your own financial independence; a great relationship (or a great celibacy, if that’s really your thing); youthful vigor; and the capacity to save the entire world. And then you can teach these things to others.

So far, we’ve been talking about how to get your students to come back to your classes, and how to establish a daily yoga practice, because this is what will really help them. It’s important though to think a lot about what will really help your students—what will help them achieve the dreams that they have for their own lives.

If one task is to get people to come back to yoga class, another is to inspire them to do their yoga practice daily, if only for a short amount of time. Anyone who has truly gotten deep benefit out of yoga knows that this requires a daily practice—opening up the channels and chakras is really a lot easier with a modest, regular, daily practice. Here then are some tips for getting people to actually do a daily practice.

If they don’t come back, it doesn’t matter what you can teach. As a yoga teacher, we need to spend a lot of time thinking about how to make our class a pleasant, enjoyable, uplifting experience. The goal of having a class is to help the student. We can’t help them if they have an unpleasant experience in our class and don’t come back.
