  • this was sooo helpful! my wrists felt so sore after every workout and i almost had to give up but this really helped so much! thank youuu

  • This helped immensely, I was really suffering with strain on my wrist whilst doing Yoga. I didn’t want to give up Yoga! Thank you:)

  • I have been doing the warm-up aspect of this video every day for the last three months. No more wrist pain, no more tennis shoulder or elbow. If you put the time in and do this before your work out, your body will be very happy.

  • Thank you! I haven’t been able to have a yoga practice because of wrist pain, and this is the first video that actually addresses it in a way that makes sense for me!

  • Hi Maryke, thanks for this. I’m really enjoying your videos. It’s so nice to hear a South African voice:) I’m teaching yoga to seniors and really worry about osteoporosis. I read somewhere that crunches should be avoided. Do I need to worry about other core work? I try to keep it gentle, but would be good to know for sure what I should be staying clear of? Thanks

  • Yogi Ashton thanks for this great video always humble, your great success isn’t affecting the quality of who you are beautiful and pretty with dark hair as well as blond

  • Is there any severe injury from muscle pull can happen or no? I am little worried about yesterday from what I did in bridge pose I stretched a nerve in left side and now I am feeling this sensation from my head to toe it’s not really sensation but something is very much noticeable. Please reply if you read this.

  • Is there any yoga pose that will help me with Baker’s cysts? I have them in each knee. Is there anything a chiropractor can do for Baker’s cysts? Thanks, as always, for another informative video!

  • I have been doing yoga classes for many years and have never seen such clear and important hints. Thank you very much for this video!

  • Thanks for the tips!
    I tried to download the Howtostretch Handbook but it says seller account is currently unavailable so I can’t have it. May I ask where can I get it if it’s still available? Thanks!

  • no, no no! we LIVE in flexionat home, at the office, in the car, on the couchwe do NOT need to add more flexion in practice (although I agree that it does need to be balanced). As a matter of fact, asana practices heavy on forward bends (see ashtanga primary series) result in terrible lower back and sacroiliac issues. We need strengthening as well as stretching for, as you say, balance. Also: asana derives from root “as”, which means “to sit”. nothing to do with sitting without pain.

  • Thank you so much for this. Two weeks ago I done 2 yoga videos in one night, about 20 minutes each, I usually only do 1. I had only been practising for three weeks. I felt a bit sore in my lower back the day after but thought it was just DOMS. So I done yoga again the next day and my back started to kill me. It got super bad and I had to stop yoga and my running, I was gutted. I couldn’t bend down or wash my hair over the bath, driving and sitting were horrid. I know I pushed really hard in cobra on the same night but that’s because the yoga was feeling so good and I was feeling stronger and more supple. Anyway, my back is almost better but I’m super scared to try yoga again, I really don’t know what to do, how can I have injured myself when it felt so good:(

  • I’ve been practicing yoga since I was 3 years old. I received my teacher certification at Intregal Yoga Institute in New York City. I had practiced yoga for over 50 years. 5 years ago I injured the brachial plexus on the left side while in bow pose. The pain was so severe I experienced six hours of syncope. It took many months of physical therapy to regain the use of my left arm. To this day I am still not able to lift it above shoulder height. I used to practice advanced yoga. Now I can barely practice Q’gong. The arm is almost always in some amount of pain and disabeles me from doing many normal activities. Even though I continue to practice my physical therapy the muscles of the left arm have visibly atrofied. The surgery to reatach the brachial plexus to my spinal cord involves interfering with C3 to T1. At my age with COPD and a heart condition, I doubt I could survive the surgery. I also have Bakers cysts behind each knee from sitting in Lotus pose and a torn ligament terris on the right hip socket also from yoga. I regret the time yoga has taken out of my life comma and the money I’ve spent becoming a teacher. I no longer consider myself a yogi.

  • Great info! Thanks for sharing!
    It would be wonderful if you could post a video about cervical disc injury caused by incorrect headstand.:) Namaste!

  • Hi Viru, thank you for your videos. I am a beginner and I have learned so much from your videos, they are clear and precise. Keep it up!

  • oh crap I’ve been doing a shit load of cobra and other back bends for my sciatica. Is cobra good for sciatica? Thanks for the info Mark!

  • Whoa I feel totally vindicated now in not ever feeling really comfortable with the transition between Updog and Downdog! I’m definitely checking out her website!!
