Idealizing Inversions: Where Yoga Goes Wrong

Inversions are not everything, but some people sure act like they are. In most of the classes I have taken, and in my teacher training, we are not shown how to safely fall out of an inversion--we are only shown how to get into one. Let's be real--shit can happen in inversions; good and bad, and the bad can be very bad--you can potentially break your neck, jack up your spine, or something else. I don't say this to scare anyone, but I think this discourse isn't out there in the "yoga world" and it should be.
