Hip-Healthy Asana : The Yoga Practitioner's Guide to Protecting the Hips and Avoiding SI Joint Pain

The yoga practitioner’s essential guide to understanding, preventing, and relieving hip pain in asana practice. The mind-body benefits of daily yoga practice are unquestionably positive, but as yoga has become more popular, an increasing number of yoga practitioners of all ages are suffering from hip and lower back pain and intense sacroiliac joint (SI) discomfort. The urge to push yourself too far, too fast can result in hip pain or injury. The key in protecting your joints and maintaining healthy hips for the long-term is to cultivate strength and stability rather than focusing primarily on flexibility. Hip-Healthy Asana is the yoga practitioner’s essential guide to fully understanding, preventing, and relieving hip pain in asana practice, along with practice tips, modifications, and sequences that enhance hip strength and stability for a sustainable practice that can last through every age and stage of life.
