For Yoga Teachers: About Contraindications & Alternatives – Asana / Pose Contraindications Index by Condition


We’re excited to bring you a concise contraindications index—a tool to aid you in promoting student safety. It can support your study and your communication with students in order to help them choose practices that best meet their individual needs.

Please Use with Care

  • Please take care to avoid implying that yoga teachers are qualified to give medical advice.
  • We’ve done our best to scour dozens of expert sources to bring you reliable information but, of course, we can’t guarantee that every possible consideration is provided here. Please use your own training, experience and common sense when working with students.
