Most of these injuries occurred in women aged between 20 and 39.   

Betul Sekendiz, a lecturer at Central Queensland University, said the increase in injuries far outstrips the number of people doing yoga - because that has only risen by 5.5 per cent in the same timeframe. 

Instead she believes it has something to do with the amount of influencers performing yoga on their social platforms - and individual's want to follow suit. 

The majority of poses seen on Instagram, for example, are unassisted headstands which shouldn't be attempted until the participant is well stretched prior.

I Went To Meghan Markle's Favourite Yoga Class & Here's What Happened

  I Went To Meghan Markle's Favourite Yoga Class & Here's What Happened It’s a Friday night in Silver Lake, LA, and I join a queue of lithe, tanned men and women, all wearing the standard uniform round these parts of black slouchy trousers, cashmere beanies and tattoos. Inside the building I’m hit by a wall of intense, sauna-like heat, the smell of bodies and almost-total darkness. Candles flicker under a mural reading ‘A Tribe Called Sweat’. Kanye West’s "All of the Lights" thrums out over huge speakers. We each hand over $25 and when it reaches capacity the rest of the queue gets turned away. But this isn’t Hollywood’s hot new club – it’s Y7 Yoga, a hip-hop yoga studio with a cult following in LA and New York, including Meghan Markle.

But you won't get the same benefits if you're pushing your body beyond its capabilities.

'The whole premise of yoga is to be able to understand your body and mind and work with that to bring awareness to the limits your body can take and then work from there,' Ms Benakovic told the ABC.

She warned key social influencers against showing off difficult moves they followers may not be able to achieve at home.

'When we look at our social media and our publications, we are very, very clear on the images we use,' she explained.

It's understanding the practice and the science behind those practices - which is what we try and educate people and try to communicate the real message as what true yoga is.'

Last year a study from the University of Sydney found that yoga causes musculoskeletal pain in 10 per cent of people and exacerbates 21 per cent of existing injuries.

'Pain caused by yoga might be prevented by careful performance and participants telling their yoga teachers of injuries they may have prior to participation, as well as informing their healthcare professionals about their yoga practice,' said lead researcher Associate Professor Evangelos Pappas from the University's Faculty of Health Sciences.  

Moves like the cat cow and pelvic tilts can assist in helping you warm your body and avoid injury while performing each isolated pose.

You have a lot to gain—but you need to be cautious.: <p>First, the good news: Sticking to a consistent running routine may help keep age-related health concerns at bay better than walking. The added impact helps ward off <a href=osteoporosis, and since it's more taxing on your cardiovascular system, it may offer better blood pressure control, too, says Debbie Casola, CSCS, 59, a Virginia-based personal trainer and certified running coach. But that doesn't mean you should jump right in.

It's best to touch base with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine after 40, especially if you haven't been working out regularly, Casola says. You'll want to start out knowing if your aches and pains are concerning or just the result of age-related wear and tear, and whether or not they could become aggravated by running, she says. (Make sure you're doing these 5 foam rolling moves from Prevention Premium to ease aches and pains.) A doctor can also give you a general picture of your overall health. "Some underlying health issues can be exacerbated by sudden, intense bursts of exercise," Bakoulis says, including migraines and heart problems.
