Specialists from the Center for Injury Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Alabama, analyzed information from 2001 to 2014 to build up the damage hazard associated with yoga cooperation.
Information investigation uncovered that the damage rate by and large among grown-up members expanded from 10 for each 100,000 yoga professionals in 2001 to 17 for every 100,000 experts in 2014.
