What to do with Students who get Dizzy in Yoga?

Do you worry about your students?  How can we not!  We worry when they don’t show up. We wonder how they are doing with that sore shoulder, or the low back twinge they told us about.  And we often worry that they might trip, fall and get hurt … and especially not to have it happen on our watch!

Did you know that Dizziness and Vertigo affect the 50+ population more so than any other demographic?And with these issues comes the likelihood of potential falls which we all know can be devastating. I knew I needed to learn more about these particular conditions because I began seeing them more and more as I talked with my students. Some students mentioned that at times they felt lightheaded and dizzy in class, and some shared that they were experiencing Vertigo for weeks and months and had to stop taking Yoga.  What is going on? I really wanted to know more!
