Depending upon what the injury is, and its severity, you may be able to practice yoga with modifications. You should always let the teacher know before class if you have a specific injury so that he or she can help you with specific modifications. With an older or chronic injury, the teacher can also observe your alignment to make sure that you are not exacerbating the injury.
