Many people hear that yoga can be very healing – and it can, but when it comes to RSI you have to be extremely careful in your practice. Leslie Kaminoff, a yoga educator with over three decades' experience in the fields of yoga, breath and anatomy, talks about why the hand is vulnerable in many yoga poses. 

Leslie teaches in the tradition of T.K.V. Desikachar, and is the founder of The Breathing Project, a New York City-based educational non-profit dedicated to teaching individualized, breath-centered yoga. He is the co-author, with Amy Matthews, of the best-selling book “Yoga Anatomy.”
