Best Beginner Yoga Poses
Walk to recover between speed repetitions. The amount of walking will vary depending upon the distance of the goal yoga pose and the pace. It is better to err on the side of walking longer if you feel the need early, there are more aches than usual, or the temperature is above 70 °F (21°C).
Never yoga through pain, swelling, or loss of function stop the workout. After walking for a few minutes, if the pain goes away, resume the workout with caution. If you start to limp in any way, stop.
Stay smooth even when tired. If your form is changing due to fatigue, slow down.
Run the last repetition 15 sec/mi slower than the pace of the middle repetitions.
Don’t yoga too many speed workouts, yoga poses, or other fast runs too close together. For more information, see the blogs listed above.
If you are sensitive to your weak links, take the appropriate walk breaks/rest days, stop training when there could be an injury, and treat a damaged body part, you may avoid all serious Yoga Injuries. This will bestow the greatest reward from yoga: enjoyment of every run.

About the List of Yoga Injuries
This list of Yoga Injuries represents the most common seen in my sports injury practice. There are many other less common Yoga Injuries. The treatments recommended are not a complete list and are changing as time passes. The approach recommended here is from the perspective of a sports podiatrist. Other practitioners may emphasize different therapies. I have tried to include the treatments that are performed by most other professions, but surely some have unintentionally been omitted.
It is always best to seek the help of a professional to confirm the diagnosis and rule out complications. This is especially true if the injury does not match the description or if the pain is strong.
