Yoga Practice Tips For Arthritic Spine
Tip 1: A little discomfort is ok
Yoga may cause painful flare ups in the short term, because more movement is required from the joints. A little discomfort is ok in the short term because it means the joints are loosening in the long term. Don’t let the flare-up be painful.
Tip 2: Gentle
Start your practice with gentle warm ups.
Tip 3: Flow
If it is painful to hold a pose, don’t stay for more than a few seconds. Instead, develop mobility in the joints by flowing in and out of the pose.
Tip 4: Props
Use props when needed.
