I remembered the wooden stick behind the knees but didn't think about the strap. Good idea. I didn't see my student, but I wanted to thank you for your answer. If I have a creative idea from when I see her, I will write back.
Thanks again

Pain in the knee in Saddle and Virasana

Hi Bernie, hi Yinsters, I had my participants doing saddle pose (1 leg at a time) the other day and one participant had the impression that her knee was about to tear. I asked her to try sitting with one block in Virasana to see if it was better for her knees and if she could feel a stress in her qu...

Found it.

Thank you Bernie for answering. Fortunately (!) I was not able to find a version on-line and do a search in the text :). I love her book so much, I just red it again...

Excerpt in Sarah Powers's book... Help.

Hi everyone, I'm looking for an excerpt in the book of Sarah Powers. She talks about a sequence for a specific meridian (which I don't remember) and wrote something like "This sequence brings a lot of emotions, that's why I put this pose (?) in the middle, so it will give you a break" I can't find i...

Thank you Bernie for this answer and the link to Cathy Keenan, I didn't know her. I will read her articles for sure! You are right : setting a practice based on the date of the calendar seems silly for a personnal practice, but I thought it could be a nice theme for a class. I never know what my stu...

Yin for the Summer Solstice

Hi there, I would like to know more about sequencing for the solstices, like seasonnal yoga. I read in Paul Grilley's book (p.31) that in the summer or warm days it's good to do a lot of forward fold as they are calming and sedating, and obviously do the opposite on cold days or winter I assume.
