Preventing Joint Injuries in Yoga Classes

Certain asanas put a great deal of pressure on the gliding joints, which are the wrists and ankles. Offer props to students with weak wrists to relieve some pressure in weight-bearing poses like downward dog. Also, explain that not all the weight should rest on the heels of the hand. Advise students to press down with their knuckles and spread their fingers. The lotus pose is the clear winner for ankle discomfort. Suggest to students with weak ankles to practice a modified lotus pose.
