Yoga can be an excellent solution to address many knee issues – helping you to manage pain, reduce inflammation and regain both your physical stability and mobility.
This workshop will focus on alignment of the knee in the practice of yoga. Specifically, we will work with straight legged poses to create space in the knee joint and then work on techniques for bending the knee. You will learn how to work with different types of poses so that you can take care of yourself in regular yoga classes, practice at home and improve your knee function.
This workshop is geared toward those with at least 6 months of consistent Iyengar Yoga practice. This is not appropriate for people who are dealing with knee replacements.
