I am on my way back to Canada from Denver. If you get a chance to visit Denver this summer, it is really a cool big city to check out. The city got a lot of neat little places like this…
Today, I have some yoga moves that can help you alleviate your knee pain.
Enjoy the video and article below!
In today’s video, I wanted to through three knee pain relief yoga movements.
3 Knee Pain Relief Yoga Movements

I got Donnalee to demonstrate.
#1 – Single Knee to Chest
Single Knee to Chest
You are lying down on the ground. You will pull the knee towards your chest as much as you can. Try to get as much range of motion happening in the knee. If placing your hand is too much on the knee, you can place your hand underneath. We are trying to be offloaded so you are not standing and putting any pressure through the joint and just working on range of motion in the knee. Perform 5 repetitions on each side alternating back and forth. You are getting as much range of motion in your hip and your knee as you can, holding and moving to the other side in smooth controlled movement with light intensity. We are maintaining and improving the range of motion in the knee.
#2 – Low Bridge
You are bending at the knees. The feet are hip width apart. Push through your legs and lift your seat up. You will hold it for a second or two and then you will come back down. We are working on activating the hips, knee, hamstrings and glutes. We are working on the muscles above the knee joint. Strong glutes and hamstrings decreases the stress on the knees and decreases knee pain. Perform one set of 5 repetitions in a smooth controlled movement.
#3 – Single Leg And Hand Touch
Single Leg And Hand Touch
You can place your hand on the wall or in the railing. We are not worrying about balance. Place your weight on one leg then bend through the hip and try to touch the floor and then come back up. We are really focusing on the glutes and the hamstring to do the work. Perform one set of 5 repetitions on each leg alternating back and forth in smooth and controlled movement. We are activating and strengthening the hamstrings and glutes.
