Dear Yoga Student,
After that last email I sent you about NOT reading the news,
(because it’s too negative focused) one of my students sent
me an email:
“Yeah, but Lucas… the New York Times has great articles
about yoga sometimes…”
And she sent me a link to an article about how yoga can
allegedly wreck your body. Strokes, degenerative spinal
conditions, paralysis… it’s really far out.
Can yoga wreck your body?
I don’t think so. Can you get hurt? Pull a hamstring? Fall
on your head? Tweak your elbows? Sure, anything physical
has a certain amount of risks.
But what are we supposed to do? Just sit on the couch?
Compared to lawn bowling, yoga is a high risk activity.
Compared to pretty much any other physical activity, it’s
extremely safe. Says me…
