Yogic tip for today

For knee problem (though every physio is going to arch their eyebrows at me) supta baddha konasana (with yoga blocks at the knee if u wish) is very soothing. I should know:  since the knee injury, I found out how  how silly and misinformed (tho well-intended) the medical advice for bed rest is
When  your knee is hurting the last thing u want to do is bed rest: When you lie down, in whichever direction or on your back or your stomach (this is best of the worst) the legs hurt like crazy -- from the ankles up to the hips and at the knee itself of course. Even shavasana hurts. Supta baddha konasana releases the contracted nerve, so something soothing kicks in. Soothing is healing, na?
