I think it boils down to having a good yoga instructor and using common sense.

"He would sit upright on his heels in a kneeling position known as vajrasana for hours a day, chanting for world peace." Kneeling for hours a day? This would hurt whether you were in a yoga pose or not.

All of the yoga instructors I've had have mentioned that if a pose hurts or is uncomfortable, don't do it. I currently take a restorative yoga class once a week and the instructor gives a couple of variations for each pose so that they are comfortable for everyone.

There are some poses I won't do, such as plow and wheel, because they put pressure on my back and neck. But they don't seem to bother the super-flexible lady on the mat next to me. If yoga doesn't work for you, don't do it. But that doesn't mean it doesn't work for other people.
