If there's nothing wrong with your knee (diagnosis-wise) my yogi teachers would tell you to work thru it in order to strengthen area and avoid further imbalances), or avoid the postures that flare it up- ie., warrior I is a different knee stressor than warrior II. Even the floor poses do different things to different sides, angles,etc. There are some books that give ideas on a routine sequence ["choreography"] - if you want some rec's let me know. I find the gentle, non-stressing videos terribly boring. Would rather sit somewhere and meditate for that time.
But if it hurts in most everything...I'd get that checked out by a doc!
Oh, I would love some recs, if only so I can change up what I'm doing now. I'm not a fan of the gentle videos either. I always end up getting annoyed, which I think sort of defeats the purpose of trying to relax.
Yeah, it's pretty much any standing position that involves bending the knee. I've noticed it with Warrior I and II, the Extended Side Angle, Prayer Twist, and Reverse Warrior. Don't worry, I'm definitely planning on getting it checked out. I just won't be able to see my regular doctor for a couple of months, and I'm really trying to avoid doing anything to aggravate it until then.
