2nd Avenue does not provide medical advice
Any guidance given on 2nd Avenue (2ndavenue.ca and/or yoga.2ndavenue.ca) is not meant to replace medical advice or an in-person class with a qualified yoga teacher; it should be used only as a supplement if you are under the care of a health care professional. While 2nd Avenue has taken care in compiling this site, we can not take any responsibility for any adverse effects from your yoga. When you are unsure of any aspect of the practice or feel un-well seek medical advice or the expertise of a qualified yoga teacher.
Stay away from pain & honour your body’s limits
If a pose or practice causes you pain, move out of the pose mindfully but quickly. Do not push or strain into any pose and recognize that not all poses are for all people.
Use extra caution if you are pregnant or have serious health concerns
If you are pregnant or have serious health concerns (such as joint injury, recent surgery, epilepsy, diabetes, or any cardiovascular diseases – especially high blood pressure), please discuss your intention to practice yoga with your health care professional.
