Catherine I've been taught it comes from the core, the muscles beneath your abs - which take patience & gentleness to work with, as the abs need to be relaxed to access them.


it was ok but it was easy

Why is Yoga Paws ad allowed on each page of today's article? Pretty obnoxious!

I have much more limitation twisting right . How can I reach the same flexibility on my right side , does it come from gluts or abs ....
Is there any other that could help me ?


This move is very relaxing


Maxine- sometimes cracking and crunching in the knee means that there is compression in the knee joint. Vjrasana with a yoga mat rolled firmly and placed behind the knees can help. Take it slow and use blocks, goal is bring the sitting bones to the heels, it took me about 3 months to do that.


I am curious what difference it makes having the foot of the upper leg also uppermost; i.e. when legs are to the left side, the left foot is uppermost. I naturally want to put the opposite foot on top. Can anyone give me the reason why this positioning is important? I'd appreciate it. Thank you.


I get very nervous when I do warrior pose. I have arthritis in my right knee= from a jknee injury. when I do this pose my knee is crunching and cracking. How can I modify this pose?


It would be good if these came with a short video to see exactly how we are supposed to move.

i would love a yoga cd ..i prefer gentle hatha u offer one of these for sale....i find i like to listen to the instructions and assume the pose rather than watch a video....i also like vinyasa sequences...
