What do you all think about this NY Times article about yoga wrecking your body? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/08/magazine/how-yoga-can-wreck-your-body….
I read the article and heard the interview on MPR. I thought he was very careful to not blame anyone per se, at least in the interview, but I also believe that once things go “mainstream” we see increases in risk and injury.
The shoulder stand has always bothered me, and I agree with his analysis of why it can be harmful, however, it’s a standard yoga pose. Like everything else in the industry we need to consider the what’s and the why’s!!
This brings me back to certification and requirements.
