    Aligning the knees is an important step in bringing many yoga poses into balanced alignment. Moreover, proper placement of the knees is important to protect these rather delicate weight-bearing joints. Tightness in the hips limits the range of motion of the legs which makes many yoga poses challenging (think lotus pose). Since the hip joint is a stronger, better-protected joint than the knee, in poses where hip flexibility is insufficient, the knees will be compelled to provide the desired range of motion that the stronger hip joints are denying, causing the knee to move in ways in which it was not designed to move, and potentially damaging the knee.

Do you keep obsessing over the same limitations, the same frustrations in your practice (tight hamstrings, poor balance, weak core, anyone)?
    Do you ever ask yourself any of the above questions? Should you?
