Keep your knees healthy with this yoga practice
Yoga is well suited to help prevent or minimise the erosion of cartilages and to decrease pain within joints that have already sustained such damage. According to yogic knowledge, most of the factors that are responsible for damages to the cartilages are related to how the body sits, stands and moves.
This video will guide you through a sequence designed to gently take your knees throughout a wide range of motion, in order to distribute synovial fluid over the surface of the cartilage that caps the bones.
In fact, the areas of the joint surfaces that are rarely used because they are outside the normal range of movement fail to get the nutrients they need and over time tend to degenerate, an example of “use it or lose it”. 
So if you care for your knees, this yoga sequence combines some exercises to increase the strength & flexibility of the spine, improve structural alignment and keep your knees healthy and active.
