    How to claim yoga injury compensation


    Yoga is said to be very good for the mind, body and soul. Certainly, if you practise it regularly you might be surprised at how much benefit you get from it. While you can try yoga in the comfort of your home, many people elect to attend classes. This is a good idea in many ways, not least because you can take advantage of being taught proper form and movement by an experienced yoga instructor.

    While you may not think of yoga as a sport, there is still a potential there to be injured if you are not careful. Yoga may not be as intense an activity as you can try in other classes, but you will be surprised at how much of a sweat you can work up. As such, it makes sense to ensure you attend a good class that is well run.

    How could you be injured in a yoga class?

    Firstly the room that is used for your yoga classes must be in good condition and ready for each class. The floor should not be wet or slippery, because this could easily lead to a slip or fall for you, either as you enter or exit the room or as you are taking part in the class.

    It is also reasonable to expect your yoga instructor to be fully-qualified to take the class. If this isn’t the case, they may give incorrect or possibly even hazardous information when it comes to making sure every member of the class can perform the moves safely.

    Have you been hurt in a recent yoga class?

    Yoga injury compensation is potentially likely in situations where the injured person can prove someone else caused their injury to occur. For example, as we mentioned above, if the floor is slippery for some reason and you slide over and hurt yourself, this would not be your fault if there was no sign to indicate the condition of the floor. For instance someone might have recently mopped it and known it would be slippery, and yet they did not leave a sign in place at all.
