Iyengar Yoga for Knees and Lower Back Pain



  1. Lower back pain and also stiffness is an everyday agony for me. I have tried making use of regular guidebook but it did not actually help. However, using this back pain guideline, "fetching loni" (Google it), was able to take care of my back stiffness substantially. It`s very cozy. Fine guidebook, strongly recommended..

  2. I have sciatica in back and arthritis in knees, there is no way i can put my leg up that high with the pain I am in, was hoping for easier exercises really. This video is to hard for us who are living with chronic pain, is is more for healthy people to do. jumping can jar the back and knees if you have problems with both. gonna look for something easier sorry.

  3. It is a nice video, but I would definitely be cautious regarding all instructions.
    I am an Iyengar yoga teacher. If you have knee or lower back problems, do not jump into/ out of poses – step instead. From Prasarita Padotanasana scissor the feet in closer together before coming up.

  4. Don't know about you but Virabhadrasana I in the Iyengar system is generally done with the back heel down.  I see why you would want to keep it up and that's my preference  but I have studied Iyengar for a very long time and Manouso Manos would never teach this with the heel up.

  5. Thank you so much for doing this video. I started my yoga training with Iyengar Yoga and it did resolve my Scoliosis issue with my spine. Your props in the background brought back so many fond memories. Anyone that doubts this, hasn't tried it or got serious about dealing with knee and back issues. These are fundamentals in alignment and building strength to correct posture….again thanks.

  6. bad advice here, sorry, maybe good for strength  , but these movements will damage a hurt knee 🙁  and jumping out the legs to 4 feet , no thanks I would like my knee to get better , not hurt it more……

  7. 3 years back while running I lost my balance and fell on my knees. After 1 year I started feeling knees weakening. Even if I tap with my knuckles on the knees it pains. Orthopaedic doc told me to do IYENGAR YOGA for stretching the legs (front & back) and hip muscles. That will make the knee pain vanish. BKS Iyengar yoga is always full and management is bad. I really liked this video. If you guys have a iyengar class running in Mumbai with great teacher like the one in this video please let me know. I will join it IMMEDIATELY only if its in South Mumbai. 

  8. You are able to take away your back-pain completely by replace your food plan a little bit – I've try and now nearly relief all the pain. In my opinion you should try it
