What You Didn’t Know About Yoga
Many people would like to try yoga these days. As a matter of fact the number of Americans doing yoga has risen from about 4 million in 2001 to what some estimate to be as many as 20 million in 2012.
It’s great that so many people want to do yoga, but this means more demand for yoga teachers, resulting in an increase in non-certified teachers. These instructors don’t have enough experience to safely teach anyone the poses. Alignment is so important as well as knowing what pain or strain feels like is essential. Students have to know how to pay attention to their bodies and understand that it changes and feels different every day.
