I have AS (not a dinosaur - a type of inflammatory arthritis) and have recently discovered Yin Yoga. I run 3 times a week and do core and strength exercises on alternate days. Anything to keep flexible and fit. I have also been practising various forms of Hatha yoga for 30 years. My first question is about backbends: I have fairly constant inflammation in the sacroiliac joints and neck and I can't figure out if backbends are a good idea or a bad one?! I would also like to know if there any specific poses that may be good for runners.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
