Thanks for your time replying :) I think the sports therapist was being imprecise and suggesting the head of the biceps into its tendon and surrounding fascia. But I'll see what physio says; ultimately its down to me to both protect and mobilise. I'm familiar with the PMA sequences, and am already u...

Shoulder Tendonitis

In general, tendonitis is a chronic inflammation of the tendon (but not always - sometimes it is a tear). Tendonitis is a bane of yoga teachers who tweak/sprain their ligaments or tendons but won’t give their body a chance to heal because they have to teach, and in teaching they re-injure the area ...

I'm working privately with Nidra CDs after home yin practice, and finding it a beneficial combination. I'm doing teacher training at present, and my tentative plans - and when you write that you just know the Gods are smiling - are to supplement that with Nidra training so I can offer that as part o...

The order of things

Hari Om A question, or possibly a discussion topic if there is no right or wrong. Most yoga texts - I've been doing some holiday reading - and indeed classes, seem to flow through an order of Asana, Pranayama, Meditation/Mindfulness. I seem to find my home practice works better with Mediation, melti...

I'm currently undertaking a (my first) TTC; its a "generalised" one, even though I am drawn to establishing a teaching practice in Yin, and the main attractions/criteria were: ~ local to me (ten minutes away!) ~ part time - 2, maybe 3, years, suits me, possibly wouldn't suit most ~ the teacher, alth...

Ankle Stretch

I'm struggling with the Ankle Stretch pose: http://www.yinyoga.com/ys2_2.0_asanas_ankle_stretch.php basically I can't see the picture in enough detail, what is the alignment of the feet? The image seems to suggest quite a severe pronation to have the sole of the foot facing outward; thats neither ac...

Thanks Bernie, thats helpful. After I posted the question, I was musing further; the flexation on the knees is exaggerated even further by the Vajrasana / Virasana / Saddle asanas, and whilst there is clearly some differing dynamics there because of the kneeling rather than standing posture, the kne...

utkatasana v lunge

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but the previous posts touch on my question a little. When working with a lunge based asana its always taught not to let the knee come forward of the ankle. But in utkatasana - or squat based asanas - clearly the knee does go forward. So my question is what ...

I read this article with interest, and the follow up here. I can't help but feel that more emphasis on encouraging student body awareness is linked to this. For some students locking out or hyper extension will feel instinctively right; for others it won't, but I'm not always sure the balance betwee...
