Hi I'm new to this forum and I'm also new to yoga. The reason why I began yoga was because I was searching for a way to correct the misalignment in my legs. I have a condition called genu valgum (commonly known as knock knee). My knees are also hyper extended.
I recently picked up the book Structural Yoga Therapy by Mukunda Stiles. As you all may know, in this book Stiles discusses poses that help align the most common misalignment issues. He actually describes how he corrected his own knock knees in 6 months by doing intensive Warrior II and Tree Pose sessions. I've done a fair amount of research and have only found a few articles that support these claims.
I am currently doing a 32 minute session using both Tree and Warrior II. I'm holding each pose for 1 minute on each leg 8 times. My questions are as follows:
1) I was wondering if any of you have had experiences correcting misalignments similar to knock knees and how those experiences panned out.
2) And if there are any other poses besides Tree pose and Warrior II that you can recommend that will help me align my legs.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help guide me in the right direction.
