Yoga can be beneficial for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including knock knees. Knock knees are musculoskeletal deformities resulting in poor knee alignment, affecting the upper leg area including the femur and tibia leg bones plus related tissues. If used consistently, yoga postures can help retrain muscles and improve overall functioning levels.

Yoga for knock knees provides many benefits. Yoga is known as a mind-body activity that increases body awareness, concentration levels and mindfulness. Yoga provides natural relaxation and reduces stress levels.

Increase your yoga awareness by paying attention to how you perform everyday activities such as climbing and descending stairs, stepping up or down, walking and getting in and out of chairs. Stay hydrated by drinking water throughout your yoga routine to keep your body and joints lubricated.

It consists of body postures, breath control and meditation. There are many different types.  In essence to recognise dysfunction in cognition and overcome it for a release from suffering.

Quality is poor. Fit is poor. Sizing is off, M is too big, S is too small.
Beside all of this their service is really bad , check https://alo-yoga.pissedconsumer.com/review.html .
As an example, they send a code to use like 10% or 20% off, both times it would not work until you would contact their support, and both times they would say "so sorry, something is off" - which seems more like freud, because how many people would go to contact service just to place the order.
And considering how bad they re doing, they are 100% overpriced for the quality & service they offer

India is the birthplace of yoga. Yoga is believed to be the purest path to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual fitness. The hermit Patanjali is considered to be the father of yoga. He was a philosopher cum doctor.

Yoga prescribes a dispassionate and neutral outlook towards life. This is achieved when one manages to free his mind from the intellectual and emotional ties that bind it. The individual will eventually attain a state where he cannot discriminate between love and hate, good and the bad and pleasure and pain. Ahimsa (non-violence), Satya (truth), Asteya (control desire), Brahmacharya (celibacy) and Aparagriha (avoiding greed) are fundamental principles of yoga.

Yogic techniques were initially viewed with skepticism in the Western world but now all of them have been scientifically proven in the West. People spend more than $3 billion every year in the United States practicing yoga. Many scientists in India are working together to collate all authentic yoga techniques in a single compendium.
