In this week’s episode, Jason and I are live from Detroit Yoga Lab answering student questions about some of the most common yoga injuries, how to prevent and avoid them. Bonus banter: Find out why Jason has a black eye – unsurprisingly, it’s not from yoga or a bar fight. And learn what Jason’s three favorite bands are.
(Our regular listeners will not be surprised to hear that Salabhasana (Locust Pose) come up a time or two.)
Here’s what we discuss:
- Alternative poses for Warrior I and II for practitioners with SI joint pain
- Best poses and modifications for hamstring overstretch issues
- Which movements during an asana practice could cause excess shoulder and neck tension and which counter poses or practices can students do to find relief
- Have we demonized Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose)? Plus, how to transition from Plank to the floor in a way that’s less likely to cause injury
