      Yoga may not give you instant results but they are safer than hard intense workouts hence do not give you side effects like weak knees or weak back.

      Moderation is important in any case. Be it food or exercises. Follow the given instructions and safety precautions properly. Never rush while doing difficult postures. Also warmup is also important before you start any workout or Yoga. Simple stretches are also enough.
