Most yoga teachers have an occasional student (or applicant) with LBP, whose condition might be worsened by their classes. This is not always easy to detect because small but significant increases in pain can be masked by other effects of yoga, which are beneficial.
CALBA, our online LBP assessment system, categorises cases of LBP into (a) those for whom a gentle yoga class could be suitable (with precautions) and (b) those who would be at risk in such a class and for whom specialist yoga therapy could be helpful. CALBA also has a monitoring system which enables students with LBP to keep a record of their condition. This enables them and their yoga teacher to detect any worsening that might have been caused by the yoga and take steps to prevent this happening.
