Before undertaking any type of exercise, including yoga, it is important to listen intelligently to the needs of your body!! The techniques and suggestions presented on Yoga for Everyday People are not intended to be a substitute for proper medical advice. Consult your physician before beginning any new exercise program. Yoga Nature assumes no responsibility for injuries suffered while practicing these techniques. If you are pregnant, have any chronic or recurring conditions such as high blood pressure, neck or back pain, arthritis, heart disease, and so on, seek the advice of your physician or a highly trained yoga teacher or both before practicing to determine necessary precautions. If you are unsure whether you should be practicing yoga then please consult your physician or highly trained yoga teacher or both of these people. In a nutshell, if anything causes you discomfort or aggrevates an injury you have then don’t do it. Yoga is not a competition, yoga is about learning to honour the needs of our bodies by connecting to our body's innate wisdom and listening to it. There are always alternative ways to do poses and some poses may be best avoided. Remember... 'when in doubt, leave it out'... until you talk to your GP or yoga teacher.
Happy practicing! Jo and Ben
