Yoga First Aid – so easy to get injured!
Many people embark upon yoga to help heal pre-existing injuries, and to prevent everyday life activities making them worse.
Yet the biggest risk factors in yoga that can cause participants to get hurt are not those pre-existing injuries, but the students themselves. Yes, those that often risk injury by reaching full extensions in poses, or asanas, when their own bodies are not ready for reaches to that extent, in fact, their body may never be ready for those reaches.
Yoga teachers can add to the high-risk factors, not all yoga teachers but those who lack adequate training. There are a couple of reasons that cause injury, one may be where the teacher is instructing a class that is far too large for close supervision.
The other is where the yoga teacher introduces an attitude of competition or assisting the student to exceed their own ability and flexibility.
