At Least 35 Common Medical Conditions are Contraindicated for Certain Yoga Poses: Prevent Yoga Injury Campaigns to Educate on Yoga Safety
Date:12/6/2012

injuries and ailments. Her book details 35 all-too-common medical conditions, cross-referenced against 112 fundamental yoga poses.

“You always hear that line, ‘Consult a physician before you begin a new physical activity.’ But how many people really do it? And how many physicians truly understand the complex postures well enough to advise people accurately?” she asks. “The truth is, you are the only person ultimately responsible for making sure your practice is safe.”

Prevent Yoga Injury believes that the key to practitioner safety is to put information in their hands. Students can reduce their risk of injury greatly by educating themselves on their contraindication and being the driver of discussion with their doctor and qualified yoga instructor. Individuals who have a home practice, utilizing DVD or streaming video instruction, are at the highest risk of injury, since they lack the ability to ask questions or dialogue about their contraindication with a trained instructor.

“Really, I want my book to be a guide for anyone who wants to know how yoga can be tailored to fit all kinds of people, with a variety of potentially limiting conditions,” McColm says. “Yoga is for everyone and is totally safe when practiced with the right information, instruction and attitude,” she asserts, “and I just want everyone to know that.”

Prevent Yoga Injury was launched in fall 2012 as a one-stop-shop for reliable information on yoga safety. The company goal is to make the issue of yoga injuries, a non-issue, through information, education and dialogue. "The Contraindication Index for Yoga Asanas" is the only book of yoga contraindications available. It is the first publication of Prevent Yoga Injury.
