However, like every other science, Yogasana (yoga) is also a precise science which benefits most when one follows it under right health conditions along with precautions.

The same yoga posture may benefits some people but could be harmful for other depending upon their body health.

Following articles can help you to asses which yoga pose you may avoid depending upon your health conditions. The precautions listed in the case of following Yoga poses are not absolute but will surely give readers the idea which Yoga poses mainly they can avoid.


(15) Precautions Shoulderstand

The Shoulder-stand (Sarvangasana) is called the Queen of all asanas as it benefits the whole body.

As the body is inverted, the blood flows to the heart without any strain by force of the gravity. During holding this yoga posture the blood pressure in the brain will be an average of 110mmHg.

(16) Precautions Headstand

The Headstand is called the King of all asanas because of having tremendous benefits for the body and the mind.
In the Headstand  the blood flow to the brain increases and it revitalises the entire body and the mind. When the reversed flow of blood goes into the legs it helps to regenerate the tissues.

(17)Precautions Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)

In a Sanskrit language Bhujanga means a cobra hence the name, mostly used in the West. In the Bhujangasana (Cobra pose) the body is facing downward while the upper body is curling up and back resembling a snake with its head raised ready to strike.

(18) Precautions Fish Pose

In this posture the chest is fully expanded and stretched, and the breathing becomes fuller.

It gives the neck an effective counter stretch because it opens and releases any muscular tension of the chest after performing Shoulderstand and Plough. When these postures are practiced together the activity of the thyroid gland is regulated; a hypo active gland is stimulated and a hyper active gland is pacified.

(19)Precautions Sitting forward bend pose

“Never force yourself into a forward bend when sitting on the floor”

 In this pose the body is folded almost in half, providing an intense stretch to the entire back of the body, from the scalp down to the heels.

(21) Precautions Triangle Pose

In our ordinary day-to-day life the side stretch is the least common movement. We twist, we bend back or forward, but except that we do not often bend our spine to the side, and that’s why the Triangle is one of the most important postures in yoga practice.


(22) Precautions Bridge Pose

This pose is a wonderful way to ease tension in the shoulders, upper and in the lower back. The Bridge can reverse the strain of sitting at a desk or computer all day. It will help to pull back the shoulders, which may tend to roll forward while sitting.


(23) Precautions Locust Pose

Before attempting the full Locust it is better to do the easier version (Half Locust), which involves lifting only one thigh at a time instead of both of them simultaneously. As a beginner you may find it difficult to make any movement of lifting the thighs up but you will still benefit from the effort.


(24) Precautions Bow pose (Dhanurasana)

This yoga pose maintains the elasticity of the spine, strengthens the abdominal muscles, tones and massages the abdominal organs. Balancing the weight of the body on the abdomen reduces abdominal fat and keeps the digestive and reproductive systems healthy.

the Headstand and the Handstand. The Crow pose requires courage (to risk falling on your nose) and hip flexibility (to bring the thighs alongside the chest).


(30) Precautions Lotus pose

The Lotus pose is a wonderful yoga posture but it is not practical for most people as a meditative posture. It places a lot of stress on the knee and hip joints, and should be approached with caution mostly by the novices.
