In this lesson, we introduce the vital subject of contraindications, cautions, and choosing pose alternatives.
Learn the importance of knowing and utilizing contraindications and cautions, and understand how to wisely choose alternatives.
Define contraindications and explain how they are different from cautions. Using the condition of sacroiliac (SI) joint pain, give an example of a contraindicated pose and a pose that is advised to be practiced with caution. Understand why knowing contraindications for key conditions may not be enough information to guide a student who has a particular condition. Provide considerations for choosing alternatives.
