Yes, but the whole process is a bit of trial and error at least on the part of the student. You practice, you have problems, you talk to the teacher, he might or might not suggestion something else, you practice, you have questions, you talk to the teacher, he might or might not suggestion something else and so on. Of course if you have a very popular teacher this might not be possible, in that case you have to rely on your understanding and the advice of older vajra brothers and sisters and in particular on your teachers public/private teachings. That might be more trial and error but also work out nice.
"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
