But a recent New York Times Magazine article focused on how yoga can also cause serious injury. We discuss the safe practice of yoga.

Guests:

Jason Crandell, yoga teacher and contributing editor of Yoga Journal

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

Kaitlin Quistgaard, editor in chief of Yoga Journal
