While the thought of an injury occurring to a person practicing yoga may seem improbable, it is more common than one might expect. Among the most common injuries include joint and muscle injuries, and injuries related to falls.
Often, yoga injuries, unlike CrossFit injuries, do not immediately manifest, but occur over time. However, sometimes, the injury can be the result of a yogi pushing their student too far or too hard. Like any other injury that occurs at a gym, or under the supervision of a personal trainer or class instructor, whether or not a legal claim can be made will depend on the particular facts involved, and potentially a liability waiver.
