7 Ways to Protect Your Knees in Yoga

1. Abstain from Hyperextending: When joints are excessively portable and flex too far back, they're hyperextended. In the knees, hyperextension frequently happens in postures in which the legs are rectified, for example, Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) and Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend), putting an unfortunate pressure on the ligaments. In case you're inclined to hyperextension, keep a slight curve in the knees amid standing stances and keep your weight equally appropriated among the four corners of your feet. In situated forward twists, put a moved up sticky tangle or towel under the knee of the expanded leg or legs.

2. Begin With Your Feet: Proper arrangement through the feet is the way to building quality equitably in the ligaments on both sides of the knee; when every one of the ligaments are similarly solid, the kneecap coasts easily all over and the ligament doesn't get exhausted. Separate your toes and press effectively through the four corners of your feet in each stance, even reversals. In the event that your feet are lopsided, your knees are going to endure. 
3. Keep Your Knees in Line: When moving into profound knee twists, for example, Virabhadrasana II (Warrior Pose II) and Parsvakonasana (Side Angle Pose), first adjust your bowed knee over your lower leg, then attract your kneecap line with your second toe. Keep up mindfulness in your back foot, pushing down equitably, while lifting up from the curve of your front foot. "On the off chance that you let the curve drop, the knee falls inside the huge toe, and you're set up to endure various types of abuse and intense knee wounds," says Angela Smith, a teacher of orthopedic surgery.

4. Tune into Subtle Signals: "In many cases, the knees don't give quick criticism," clarifies Iyengar instructor Joni Yecalsik. "Just later do you understand you've gone too far. With regards to the knees, the impression that would ordinarily continue the warning is the warning." If you feel achiness when you leave a twisted knee posture, you might have worked too hard.

5. Fabricate Strength by Balancing: Balancing postures, particularly those that require traveling through a bowed standing leg, for example, Garudasana (Eagle Pose), are particularly useful. "Extremely dynamic adjusting ensures the knee against future damage via preparing the useful arrangement, not simply working the muscle," Smith says.

6. Be Prop-Friendly: When it comes to situated asanas, nothing makes a tight knee more satisfied than an abundance of props. In Virasana (Hero Pose), take a stab at raising your seat with covers or a piece. At whatever time the knees are profoundly bowed, for example, in Balasana (Child's Pose) or Marichyasana III (Pose Dedicated to the Sage Marichi III), weight can be alleviated by putting a moved up washcloth as far into the knee pit as could be expected under the circumstances before twisting the joint.

7. Warm Up With Hip Openers: "If your enormous joints aren't open, your little joints will dependably take the anxiety," yoga teacher Sandy Blaine says. "Numerous individuals hurt their knees doing Lotus when their hips aren't prepared." She suggests warming up with hip extends like Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose) and Gomukhasana (Cow Face Pose).
