Sir my knees strikes with each other. I have come to know that their is an asana called "brisk asana". please tell me solution.


Given that obesity is one of the most common conditions all over the world, it is understandable to see knee and joint pain also being a very common occurrence. Although a number of individuals see the biggest danger of obesity being the impact it has on a persons aesthetic appeal, the more serious dangers develop under the radar and usually pass undetected until they have fully developed – at which time they cause serious damage. Some of the more serious problems that obesity causes include heart failure, high blood pressure and chronic respiratory tract illnesses. Moreover, because of the added weight that the joints have to bear, problems like joint pain as well as arthritis set in much earlier than simply as a course of aging. Practicing yoga for knee problems is known to be extremely effective as the various asanas that fall under this category help further develop the ligaments and tissues within the joints and increase their flexibility as well. If practicing yoga for knee problems when the primary cause of the problem was injury – a lot will depend on the extent of the injury. While yoga is always likely to help significantly, the benefits may still be rather subdued in the case of a very serious injury to the joint.
Just as important as it is to know about yoga for knee problems, it is as important to understand the various poses that are likely to do more damage than good. For instance, there are a number of yoga poses that place a significant amount of stress on the knee joint – such as the warrior pose. Unless the knee joint is healthy enough to take the strain, it may actually inflict even greater damage on the knee joint. In order to understand what yogic poses will be more beneficial in your case, it is highly recommended that you approach your yoga instructor for advice that is specifically related to your instance.
