Yoga Poses for Tendonitis in the Biceps

John Friend's reply:

The good news is that your yoga practice can be very therapeutic forthis condition if performed with good alignment. In general, thetendonitis will be aggravated by muscular actions that pull the top ofthe biceps muscle away from the humerus (the long bone of the upper partof the arm), and by any misalignment of the humerus.

The most common misalignments of the humerus include dropping thehead of the humerus (top of the arm bone) down away from the neck sothat the shoulders slope downward, excessively internally rotating thehumerus (thumbs turning toward the sides of the body when the arms aredown by your sides), and drawing the head of the humerus forward.Certainly, weight-bearing poses such as Chaturanga Dandasana(Four-Limbed Staff Pose) will be more difficult to perform with goodalignment and therefore are considered riskier. So, it is important tochoose poses in which you can consistently maintain good alignment.

Here are some key alignment principles to practice in all poseswhich will help relieve your biceps tendonitis:

  1. Keep your shoulders square across so that they are not slopeddownward. Keep the sides of your ribs lifted from waistline toarmpits.
  2. Move the head of the humerus straight back into theback plane of the body.
  3. Externally rotate the humerus. Do thisas much as you can without pushing the head of the arm boneforward.
