“There’s risk involved when you do anything physical…
there’s a lot more risk when you don’t do anything physical.”
director of Equinox’s fitness-training institute
Quote taken from this article about yoga controversy. Interesting stuff. I think Geralyn’s quote is spot on. There’s a chance you’ll hurt yourself no matter what activity you engage in (hell, I injure myself just by walking every day, bumping into things, tripping, etc) but the biggest risk is not doing anything at all.
