Yoga Poses for Knee Pain

Knee pain can be alleviated through practice of both yoga postures that stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee joint. Make sure that the knee stays in line with the ankle and does not twist in or out. Avoid seated postures that have the knee turned out to the side (like bound angle, seated head to knee). When doing postures with the knees on the floor, make sure you use a blanket or other padding so you do not feel any pain or intense pressure.
