Summer Series 2018: Q&A – How to Avoid Common Yoga Injuries

Jason Crandell quote on yoga injuries | Yoga Podcast | Yogaland Podcast

In this week’s episode, Jason and I are live from Detroit Yoga Lab answering student questions about some of the most common yoga injuries, how to prevent and avoid them. Bonus banter: Find out why Jason has a black eye – unsurprisingly, it’s not from yoga or a bar fight. And learn what Jason’s three favorite bands are.

(Our regular listeners will not be surprised to hear that  Salabhasana (Locust Pose)  come up a time or two.)

Here’s what we discuss:

* Alternative poses for Warrior I and II for practitioners with SI joint pain

* Best poses and modifications for hamstring overstretch issues

* Which movements during an asana practice could cause excess shoulder and neck tension and which counter poses or practices can students do to find relief

* Have we demonized Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose)? Plus, how to transition from Plank to the floor in a way that’s less likely to cause injury
