I couldn't resist this one. The retired gymnast who is 20 something and decides to teach Yoga will sometimes hurt his or her students. These gungho types like to jump on their students backs to force them into a split. Since the former gymnast can already do a split, they have no idea why 90% of the population can't do it. They don't understand anatomy or skeletal compression, but they can put on an impressive physical show, until they start hurting Yoga students and everyone runs for the door. An older Yoga teacher, has already "been there, and done that."
I know this will seem radical to some readers, but you will rarely see injuries in a class with a mature Hatha or AshtangaYoga teacher. The reason is student safety is the most important factor in any Yoga class.
