Yoga Injuries

The following statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission only represent a small percentage of people reporting being injured as a result of performing yoga and seeking hospital emergency room care:

  • Year 2004: 3700 people reported injuries
  • Year 2005: 5000 people reported injuries
  • Year 2006:  4500 people reported injuries
  • Year 2007:  5500 reported injuries

Since these numbers merely represent 100 hospitals nationwide, and not everyone injured in a yoga class necessarily visits a hospital, real numbers are likely much higher.
