Yoga is a therapeutic and relaxing exercise, but it also involves risks that must be taken into account. As a yoga instructor, it is important to be aware of the safety considerations that must be observed when practicing yoga, especially when it comes to beach yoga. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), a government agency in the United Kingdom, states that all companies must have a health and safety management policy. This also applies to you as a yoga instructor.
When planning beach yoga sessions, it is important to contact local officials if you plan to hold regular meetings or if you are going to use a significant part of the park. It is also important to consider the qualifications of any yoga teacher and the various hazards within your practice space that could cause trips or slips. In this step of the process, you should consider the likelihood that a person will be injured and the possible severity of the injury that they will suffer. In addition, COVID-19 prevention measures and social distancing have become key considerations for yoga instructors.
It is important to ensure that all participants are following the necessary safety protocols and that they are not pushing themselves too hard. By taking these safety considerations into account, you can ensure that your beach yoga sessions are safe and enjoyable for everyone involved.
