Hi - I have an interesting question which I think may be related to my long-term and extensive yoga practice and my current teaching schedule. I practice yoga generally 1 and 1/2 hours per day and also teach 1-2 classes per day. I have been practicing yoga for over 25 years and I am middle aged (51 yrs old). I now find that I cannot sit in a chair for longer than about 1/2 hour without getting deep pain in both hip joints that extends down through each femur. If I am doing normal daily activities I don't seem to have a problem at all. But when I have either driven a long distance in a car or have taken a long airplane flight I get the pains. I can temporarily relieve the pain by engaging my leg muscles and pulling my legs into my hip joints. It seems as though my leg musculature is sufficiently stretched and my hips are loose enough so that my legs may be coming slightly out of my hip joints. It is definitely a deep joint/bone pain in both hips. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing being associated with long-term and intense yoga practice???
