Apparently, there is no easy way to draw this line between safe and intrusive. Either way, someone will be upset. But if you look at this issue from a legal stand point negligence is a crime. Protest as we might, seniors are changing laws. Running over pedestrians isn't allowed. Now seniors are getting their eyes checked more often. If enough seniors have strokes from headstands some yogis will be in court defending themselves for negligent teaching practices. And you better have LIABILITY insurance!

So why put yourself through this? Aura has plenty of safety guidelines for yoga teachers to follow. You should know better than to put your students in harm's way.
