    He notes one can stand at attention for hours in the military, but then says it isn't "stabilizing". How much more "stabilizing" does one need? No one is pushing any of part of me during practice, unlike, for example martial art practice. So isn't that remaining stable? It's as elusive as the definition for "locked knees" itself. If one wants to practice yoga "naturally" don't worry about it. I've practiced 8 years, did martial arts for 8 years before that, and never had pain in my knees during practice, not immediately after, and not in the years since- with normal exceptions, like during biking and spinning. I think knee pain comes often from over-exerting and over exercising, especially running and jogging. There's no harm in not locking- so feel free to avoid it in practice if you want- and especially in the case of "hyperextending", which so many seem unable to do, anyways. But this advice about avoiding knee locking strikes me as something some yoga teachers made up to get people thinking they have special knowledge and must always be listened to, when the habit is really incidental and of no import.

    The term "locked" actually means "engage the quadricep muscle group until the knee cap (patella) is lifted up and into close alignment with the femur bone". While that action is happening, the ankles, feet and toes are also working to stabilize and support the lower half of the leg proprioceptively. The entire leg must engage as one unit instead of two halves. Students think "locked" means jamming the knee back into an injury causing hyperextension that throws off the entire spinal curve/abdominal groups, hip and foot placement which makes it next to impossible to remain stable. And, I dont know a human that can jam their knee back into hyperextension AND engage their quads without extreme discomfort. This video had me screaming!

    Good video, but one issue. Standing without the knees locked will consume too much energy to be practical for long periods of time? I disagree. Most people have extremely weak legs (I'm talking postural, not about how much you can squat) and are incapable of supporting their own bodyweight without locking the knees for more than a few seconds. Once you adjust yourself to keeping a slight bend, it is effortless. Chinese martial artists routinely practice standing in such positions for-no exageration- hours. After doing so for only a few minutes it becomes quite clear that the position is natural and most humans have become disaccustomed to it.

    Locking the knee (Hyperextension), cuts off circulation, brings udana and apana upward, It can cause fainting and blackouts. This in mine, do you really think that it is wise to stand in that? Otherwise nice video, thank you sir. BTW, bikram doesn't mean anything by lock your knee, as it has never been explained to me properly when i have asked any of the many, many, many bikram teachers i have asked this very question.

    I took a bikram yoga class over the summer and every day my instructor would say, "lock the knee! lock the knee!"… usually when we were in warrior 3. I can still hear her saying it in my mind. I started taking yoga classes at another studio a few months later and I have not once ever heard any teacher tell us to lock the knee… so I've always wondered about this. Thanks for the video
