Shoulder and Knee Modifications for Your Yoga and Pilates MerryBody Practice

It’s common for someone to join MerryBody and they have a pre-exisitng shoulder or knee injury.

Or it could be that they are already a member and something happens, like they break a writst.

Or, let’s also speak about those days when our bodies simply need a different option.

These two tutorials are perfect for you if you need to modify your Yoga and Pilates MerryBody practice regarding shoulders and knees.

Of course, most importantly before doing any movement, especially when you have an injury or are recovering, it’s important you check in with your medical professional and get the go ahead to move. 

Let’s start with the shoulders. 

Here’s the Shoulder Modifications for your Yoga and Pilates MerryBody practice

Watch this MerryBody Tutorial if you suffer from any shoulder discomfort or pain during All 4’s, Plank and/or Down Dog.

We take you through modifications for each of these movements and postures to ensure you take care of your shoulders.

Also! If you’re a MerryBody Member, the Filter: STANDING that you’ll find in the classes section is a great way to filter out classes that will suit injured shoulders.

 Ok! Moving onto the knees.

Here are the suggested modifications if you have any knee pain during your MerryBody Yoga and Pilates Practice.

Watch this MerryBody Tutorial if you suffer from any knee discomfort or pain during Dancing Thighs, All 4’s, or Low Lunge.

We take you through modifications for each of these movements and postures to ensure you take care of your knees.

If you have more questions and you’re a MerryBody Member, remember, you can email or message us personally and we can give you one on one feedback and guidance for modifications.

Both of these tutorials are inside the MerryBody App, so if you’re a member, go to Classes and use the Filter to search: Tutorials. There you can find a whole section of tutorials to make your practice even more effective.
