Yoga has really taken off in the last couple of decades with many a celebrity endorsing its benefits followed by a heady rush of citizens determined to boast similarly slim physiques as their favourite celebs.
Yoga is however far more complex than one may initially perceive and, in stretching the mind and body to the ultimate limit there are several potential pitfalls of yoga that often go overlooked.
Really? Is yoga bad for you? Here we outline the disadvantages of yoga.
Some of the disadvantages of yoga that have been reported and warned about by health professionals are insomnia, rashes on the skin, aching and painful muscles and fever or overheating.
In stretching the back and placing pressure on the spine, yoga has also been associated with causing stiffening of the back and back pain.
Another negative side of yoga is the growing fashion for people to take energy enhancing drugs before practising yoga in order to enhance performance and burn more calories.
In fact there is a new really silly diet craze rocking the world of keep fit and exercise in 2012, but unlike most forms of exercise is not recommended with doctors warning that it may have serious implications to one’s health….
‘Cocaine yoga’ is a new underground diet that is sweeping throughout both the UK and US and one that may prove fatal.
According to reports, the tendency to consume several grams of cocaine and then embark on a two hour yoga session is becoming increasingly popular among professional people that are determined to lose weight with many claiming that they can shed pounds in just a couple of hours exercise.
Taking any kind of ‘performance-enhancing’ drugs before exercise can prove detrimental to one’s health and is of course illegal and certainly something we would not recommend.
