what kind of yoga for injuries?
posted: August 7, 2010
I have tight gluteals from a sacral fracture three years ago. What type of yoga would you recommend that protects my low back, opens my sacrum, and stretches my gluteals, hamstrings, and calves? Thank you. – Angie

Yin Yoga is fantastic, just be aware of hurting your back. One of my early teachers told me that injuries are our best teachers! – Ted, lululemon Malibu ambassador
*Yin is a slower style of yoga that targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine.
