Physically the focus is generally on the spine, looking to compensate for the effects of that time and gravity have on the spines natural curvatures. It is important to note that all exercises, stretches and movements are within normal expected range of motion perameters. Problems often arise in yoga practice when adults attempt exaggerated bodily positions, that are really only appropriate for children, with the idea that some special benefit can be gained by working through the pain and achieving some idealized physical form.
