Good question. Most doctors will give their patients the go ahead for mild inversions, if they are medicated. But that's not our call as yoga teachers. I advise students to talk openly with their physician. Some physicians don't recommend any inversions even though students are medicated. This means it is case by case advice. My guess is there is a reason why some medicated students are advised to avoid any type of inversion. For example - medicated, but with complications to the heart, medicated and on a huge dose, or medicated but the patient still has has boderline BP (140/90).
Rather than take chances - put a warning in writing on your application form and give a verbal warning and keep giving one because you'll establish a record of care and safety for yoga students. To do otherwise is a liability risk.
