Podcast: Can Yoga Be Bad for You?

Can Yoga Be Bad for You

Listen: Can Yoga Be Bad For You?

Podcast Interview length: 51 minutes


Yoga Journal estimates that Americans spend over $5 billion a year on yoga classes and products. And this should come as no surprise – yoga is credited with lifting moods, revitalizing sex and reducing stress. But a recent New York Times Magazine article focused on how yoga can also cause serious injury. We discuss the safe practice of yoga.


In this interview I talk with:

  • Baxter Bell, director of the Piedmont Yoga Studio’s teacher-training program in Oakland and a board-certified family doctor
  • Glenn Black, yoga teacher featured in the New York Times Magazine article
  • Jason Crandell, yoga teacher and contributing editor of Yoga Journal
  • Kaitlin Quistgaard, editor in chief of Yoga Journal
