New podcast up about hypermobility and chronic pain. There are 26 types of collagen, of which type 1 is the most affected in hypermobility. Hypermobility manifests very differently in people, making for a wide range of symptomolgy. This is part of the reason diagnosis is so challenging and why people with HMS often go for years before they are diagnosed.

New podcast up! Many movement professionals work from the ground up, thinking about how the foot and ankle affect the rest of the kinetic chain. This is one of the few studies Jenn found that examines how the ankle affects the knee and landing kinematics. We review this study and talk about our own ankle injuries and working with people who have ankle issues. Yoga teachers often say it’s all connected. This paper touches on an aspect of that, namely how the ankle (a distal joint) affects the knee (a more proximal joint).

hey #YogaTeachers...ever heard the term proximal stability for distal mobility? Listen as Jennifer Pilotti and I explain what it means and review some studies that explore this concept. Can core stability training and hip strength affect landing kinematics and ankle mobility? You bet it can.

Y&B ep50: Listen in as Catherine Cowey and I discuss this ACE study on the effects of Bikram Yoga on core temps and heart rate.Because of the elevated core temps and elevated heart rates, the study concludes that a 90 minute Bikram yoga class poses a risk of heat related illness. Researcher Emily Quandt offers three key suggestions: shorten the class, lower the room temperature and focus on hydration.

New Y&B podcast up with the Charlie Reid
We talk about strength and mobility training, some research behind the The Biggest Loser, how most commercial group fitness just makes people tired not better, thought viruses that need to go away, fitness candy, and one-legged cable McTwisty presses. Yup.

Greg Lehman talks about why pain science and biomechanics need to be reconciled. People think that pain science challenges everything in biomechanics, but it doesn’t. It challenges it a little. We can and should still use biomechanics. It’s still important but you have to add all the psycho social stuff to it as well. We talk about biomechanics research, how and why to use alignment, how the musculoskeletal systems is allowed to look weird, tendon research and why it’s OK to poke the bear (not hump it).
