Yoga includes physical movements, breathing and meditative exercises. Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions. If you are new to yoga it may be wise to consult a licensed and trusted physician for approval prior to practice. Always inform the instructor of any medical conditions or physical limitations before a yoga class or session. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to decide whether to practice yoga. Namaste.
