In these yoga poses, the muscles are put into work continuously, so it is better to do with good guidance. Below are some of the contraindications of these sequences.
Thus to conclude, someone who is new to yoga and has one or more of the above ailments needs proper guidance from a yoga teacher or someone who is experienced in yoga after consultation from a physician. One needs to work on the Sun Salutation sequence intelligently while keeping the impact on the muscles in mind at each pose.
