Know Your Knees: How to Love Your Joints and Avoid Injury in Yoga Asana

March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. As much as we would like to avoid them, injuries can happen in any practice. Dysfunction at the knee can worsen because of a cycle of instability and body misalignment above and below the joint.
Luckily, many knee injuries can be successfully treated with simple measures, such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises. Using yoga props to practice safely and for knee recovery is also critical to a long-term yoga practice.
In this class, you will learn how to work with your knee joint to promote longevity.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a major stabilizing ligament in the knee which may tear if the knee is overused. The ACL does not heal easily and may cause further instability when injured.

Other common injuries in the knee are cartilage damage and meniscal tear. We will take a closer look at the ACL and PCL and how they affect the standing and seated poses of most yoga classes.If you are presently injured, Cora will share a tip on how to wrap the knee to help with knee recovery and injury rehabilitation.
