What to Do about ‘Tightness’? | Ep. 11 | Body of Knowledge™ Vlog

The sensation of tightness or muscle tension is a sensation that yoga students frequently explore through passive stretching in order to alleviate ‘tightness’ that they feel around their shoulders, hips, or back. Is passive stretching the best solution for tightness?

In this video, I explain a little bit more about this feeling – what it is and what it isn’t and introduce a shift in perspective on what to do about chronic feelings of muscle tension. In the next episode, episode 12, I introduce a challenging hip-stabilizing exercise that I call Static Circumduction, an exercise that presents one possible strategy for working with hip ‘tightness’ that may be more effective than passive stretching.
