Frozen shoulder is technically called adhesive capsulitis. The question of whether you should be practicing yoga with a frozen shoulder is not so simple to answer. Where you are in the stages of frozen shoulder matter a great deal! Please, before self-diagnosing, much less trying to do too deal with it, make sure you get a proper diagnosis and a professional opinion.

I hear it in so many workshops. Chaturanga hurt my shoulder! As if chaturanga is a living breathing entity that has the ability to raise up and hurt people. Actually, I hear this about many things, whether they are postures or methods. In other words as an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher I hear that Ashtanga injures people. What can I say, its human nature to blame something or someone else. As if a posture or method actually does something to us.
