Play nice. This is a community of people that share an interest in yoga. It is meant to be a safe and accepting place that is free of judgement. Let's all try to keep it classy, not lower ourselves to insults or rude comments, and make r/yoga an inviting place to visit. Rude or crass comments are subject to removal/ban.
Before posting, PLEASE use search and read the FAQ. Many people have posted basic questions before. Please check the FAQ before posting another 'what-should-I-wear?' type post. The article you're excited to share may have been posted yesterday. Common questions and link reposts may be removed. We will try to let you know why if we remove a post, but it may not always happen. If we don't and you want to know, just ask.
Please don't blogspam, advertise, or ask for crowdfunding. Occasional links to your blog are okay but please don't post every single time you update your blog. That will eventually get your blog banned and we don't want to do that. All links to crowdfunding sites will be removed. When in doubt, know that the mods use reddit's guidelines for self-promotion as a starting point. Surveys, market research, and assignment/research study help will be removed- you can find more info about those in the sticky.
Tag images of a person(s) in asana with [COMP]. If you are posting link to a picture of a person or persons in asana, in any form, you are required to tag it with [COMP] at the beginning of the submitted link's title (Check Out My Pose). Any posted photos/videos disobeying this rule will be subject to deletion. Please report violations. Self-posts with context need not be tagged, nor do full practice videos. Any posts to personal social media accounts are subject to deletion, per Reddit's doxxing rules.
/r/yoga is NOT a medical resource. We don't offer medical advice and we can't tell you if the pain you're feeling is a simple strained muscle or an alien life form incubating in your joint(s). By asking for advice along these lines, you assume all responsibility for the outcome should you attempt anything suggested. That being said: If you're offering advice, please do so mindfully and avoid speaking to topics you don't know about. Blatant misinformation WILL be removed. Multiple infractions may result in a ban.
