How Yoga Helps You!

Your knee is amazing! It’s an incredible piece of engineering, structured as a “pivotal hinge joint.” This means it not only swings back and forth, but also has a slight rotational capacity, allowing us to navigate easily over uneven ground. It also has a highly advanced system of lubricating fluid and cushioning sacks to keep things protected and moving easily. What’s extra-special about this protective fluid is that it’s not dumb. Land hard from a jump and it instantly becomes more viscous to absorb shock. Lighten your load and viscosity immediately reduces to support easy movement.
