Yoga & Injury

A few weeks ago there was news coverage on PBS Newshour about yoga and injury.  Moderation is key.  Like everything from sleeping, drinking, talking and eating, too much of anything can be detrimental.  Of course too little of some things can be detrimental too.  Most of us do not have to perform physical labor for a living.  Yet, the body needs to move and exercise.  Find balance!  My approach to asana is "no pain, no pain".  This does not mean muscles should never burn or breaking a sweat is bad.  It is about not hurting joints, not pushing to exhaustion and into a state of a lack of awareness.
