This is a true issue in asanas where hands should be pressing onto the floor (OT not mentioning push-ups).

Comment on When Flexibility is a Liability by Julie http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/yoga-blog/when-flexibility-is-a-liability/#comment-4723 Thu, 08 Jan 2015 17:38:13 +0000 http://www.yogabasics.com/?p=4773#comment-4723 When the S-I joint is hypermobile, forward bends feel amazing, until, they don’t. Pelvic instability results when the ligaments in the lower back become permanently overstretched and are no longer able to do their job of holding everything in place. Lumber discs can rotate and stick and extremely painful pelvic upslips may occur—I call it a train derailment in my low back. I’ve practiced vinyasa and yin style, along with others, and years later I am unable to do flexion/extension, twisting, or single-leg balancing without pain, which has pretty much curtailed my asana practice. So to all you bendy types out there, err to the side of less, not more, and as for yin yoga, well, stretching those tendons and ligaments may not be such a good idea, after all.

Comment on Baba Ramdev – Guru or Fraudster? by Timothy Burgin http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/baba-ramdev-guru-or-fraudster/#comment-4712 Thu, 01 Jan 2015 15:32:06 +0000 http://localhost/wordpress5/?p=731#comment-4712 Because “his claims of healing incurable diseases and foretelling the future are causing some to question his authenticity.” If Baba Ramdev is a true guru then he should not be pulling the wool over your eyes but instead be “one who removes darkness”. You seem to be quick at making judgements against me and Ms. Golden but incapable to question the authenticity of what Baba Ramdev is teaching.

For one “normal range of motion” is a relative concept and it makes sense to not assume this will necessarily produce a problem if we are performing in reference to our own body’s experience instead of generalities (but the generalities help very much as you say to bring awareness to things we should pay attention to).

Going to the full range of a joint doesnt seem to be harmful if it is done in accord with the activity. For example during a flow yoga class of any kind keeping microbends is important to protect the joints but in a Yin class where compression is the end point of range of motion keeping a microbend while holding a pose for a few minutes would exhaust the muscles quickly and would prevent the body from reaching its tension/compression points.
