Smart Safe Yoga
The incredible growth of yoga during the past 25 years has made “yoga” a household term rather than some oddity. Such growth has also brought with it challenges to maintaining the first principle of yoga, ahimsā (non-harming). In Western society, yoga has been mostly a practice of asana (postures), which in many cases has evolved to be just the latest exercise craze. The adoption of a physical, often fast-paced practice, led by relatively novice instructors with limited training puts participants AND the instructor at risk of harm.
This is where Smart Safe Yoga becomes necessary. Dr. Taylor has made yoga safety and medical appropriateness his priority since beginning to teach in 1997. His extensive training, research, teaching and publications have created a wealth of resources that need to be understood by both yoga proponents and the legal system.
