It’s been a while since we devoted an episode to answering listener questions, so that’s exactly what we’re doing this week.

In this episode, Jason tackles a few of the questions from listeners such as:

  • Internal or external hip joint rotation in forward fold poses? (A simple question with a not-so-simple answer)
  • Does that upper arm bone externally rotate in Chaturanga Dandasana?
  • Is passively stretching a muscle (like the psoas) or group of muscles that are both tight and weak a good idea? Or is there a better way to approach?
  • Any tips on floating from Down-Dog to sit and jumping through?
