How to avoid knee injury during yoga

1. Increase hip-joint mobility 2. Avoid knee pain by creating awareness of your feet 3. To avoid knee pain, elevate your pelvis or your knees (The knee and hip joint are intimately related in function. Lifting the pelvis in relation to the knees, can increase our perceived range of mobility and therefore prevent knee pain in yoga and reduce the risk of injury) 4. Don’t hyper-extend your knees 5. Improve alignment through balancing 6. Don’t completely flex your knees 7. Prevent knee rotation at all times 8. Keep your kneecaps off the floor 9. Watch your stances 10. Don’t squat too low 11. Use a block to align your knees. Practice safe. Practice daily.
