Yes, some positions may "trigger" unpleasant thoughts, bad memories and mess with your meditation... Do you think it would be possible to counter it by surrounding these practices with positive associations? I don't know, doing it with someone you like, in a place that soothes you, maybe even on a ...

Yes, I'm familiar with active and passive range of motion. Thank you for your reply. If this is so risky, it seems sort of crazy to access all of these yin tissues, getting maybe a bit more range and then expecting them to not go out and injure themselves. Isn't this something we should closely con...

Yes this problem is very well know in human kinetics science. Every joint has two ranges. The active range and passive range. The active range is how far the muscles can pull the body part in the range. The passive range is how much further the joint can move with an external force applied. 90%, or ...

It's probably a bad idea to learn squats in yin yoga. Need muscle strength to keep it safe from injuries. It's more like gym training. Adding a small amount of weight for part of the training is probably a smart thing to do as well. If an older person has never squatted before it will take months or...

Look up PAILS and RAILS and others

You see the things they do look like yoga poses except they are done in a specific way. If it is done well it is so effective it seems like it is too good to be true.

Make sure you get to know the people well before. There is a heck of a lot of really bad disappointment stories with yoga training.

$4500 is a really high price for 10 days.

You could have a look at the muscle spindle stretch receptors http://www.bandhayoga.com/keys_fire.html . It's part of the nervous system that causes the muscles to contract when they are stretched. Try the instructions in the link and see if it works!

"The more I get to see the less I understand"

As far as using the word disease; when old languages are changed into modern ones, English, the words and meanings often get messed up. It could have easily been a specific disease or disorder but in English just became the word disease, a general term.

Back in the good old days there was no modern medicine. In India a person would go to the yoga doctor. Yoga wasn't downward dog back then.
