According to recent study published in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine, yoga injuries are on the rise, especially among older adults.

The study, titled “Yoga-Related Injuries in the United States From 2001 to 2014,” found that there were 29,950 yoga-related injuries reported in hospital emergency rooms during that time. Across the board, the number of injuries has increased in recent years, but among seniors the rate has skyrocketed.

The researchers reported that adults 65 years and older suffered eight times the number of injuries in 2014 as were reported in 2001.
