Yoga Injuries

Yoga was originally a religious practice that was meant to connect the mind and body. The practice was supposed to about self-reflection and looking inwards. Today, as the popularity of yoga has grown, it has been adapted into a fairly common form of exercise and even competition. Unfortunately, there are some yoga instructors who are not properly trained who push students. The result of the improper practice of yoga is often serious injury.

Yoga can go from being a very positive activity which helps students improve flexibility, blood circulation, strength and spirituality to a fierce activity which is potentially quite dangerous.
