Sure: Yoga can be an incredibly wonderful activity. I practice regularly and love it. However, you can also hurt yourself in yoga if you do not have instruction or if you try to do something that you are not ready for.

Reflexion of Time: Keeping the subject limited to exercise and health, I see it this way. Exercise creates a demand on all tissues of the body affected. This calls for more blood to meet the demands.
