I've had people try to push me beyond my limits with physical exertion, and I'm learning to differentiate between my body saying "I'm tired", and it saying "no, really, STOP NOW!". It's an important differentiation, but it's not always obvious. Sometimes it is (extreme pain), but the last time I ever did yoga, I was pushed too far with the breathing control exercises (being told that it didn't matter that I was feeling odd, it was good for me). I ended up in an ambulance, and then sitting in casualty until 3am on a work night.
I think that I would have enough confidence now to "just say no", but my main thing is just to avoid likely situations, which I'm not sure is really a solution, as it all of the responsibility for motivation on my shoulders.
