It is important for us as yoga practitioners to know whether what is stopping us going deeper in a posture is compression or tension because if it is the former we can possibly be causing ourselves harm rather than good. In this video we look at three types of compression using what can happen around the hip as an example.

I co-hosted this workshop with Gosia Kobus-Kwiatkowska of Yoga Anatomy Poland. If you would like to find out more about Gosia you can check out her YouTube Channel or on Instagram.
