Bowlegs

Questioner2010-07-05 00:18:45 +0000 #1
Hello Mukunda. I wrote to you a couple weeks ago regarding my bowlegs. Thank you for your quick reply. I have been practicing the asanas you suggested in your book. I was wandering if you could let me know how long to hold each pose to see the quickest results. I live in South Florida and would also like to know if you can recommend a good teacher who could guide me. I would love to attend one of your workshops so please let me know if you will ever be in my area. Thank you and Namaste, E

A - Best is to hold them as long as possible. You want to be sure you are feeling the stretch in the outer legs (abductors) and toning in the inner thighs (adductors) otherwise they will not be effective asanas for this purpose. The only teacher I have trained in Florida is in Jacksonville; her name is Deja Gamig (dejag@bellsouth.net). I will forward this to her so you can connect if you wish. At this point I will be only in Yogaville, VA (southwest corner) in Oct. To offer an ongoing professional training starting in the fall.

I do not how yoga could help to make legs bones to be straight. It is possible to change the the muscles shape but what about bones?

I try to find a doctor who correct my bowlegs. Do any one could tell about his or her experience in bowlegs correction?

I found some information about the Ilizarov and Ilizarov-Veklich apparatus. Do anyone have a treatment with it? Is it safe?

Please let me know

Jane
