Crow Pose And Pain In My Spine.

2 posts in this topic

 Hello Candace! When i train on  Crow pose, i get bruise on the upper arms and knees,is this normal? Have noticed that after i have been practicing yoga,i get hurt just next to the spine between the shoulder blades, so does hurt when i pull my shoulders back and up. Wondering what it could be? Could it be an inflammation of my spine or is it just tight muscles? What can i do about it? Hope you get this. Melinda.

Hi there! I can't say for certain what is causing the pain in the spine. We always want to avoid any kind of actual pain, so I would suggest resting for a few days or even weeks. Yes, it is normal for some people to bruise a bit in the arms from the weight of the knees, but keep in mind we don't want to rest the knees there, we want to feel a lifting motion through the core and intercostal muscles to hold up the weight of the legs. Over time, you'll build the strength and the bruising will be less and less.
