Sat Nam Mark!
I am glad you are getting it "checked out" medically, I believe that's
important to rule out any physical condition. There are many changes you can make in
your practice to alleviate the pain. Remember to always send love and
acceptance to any area of your body that seems to be crying out. Love is our highest
form of Prana! You could sit on a chair to practice, bolster your knee until
it feels comfortable, or do more kriyas that involve standing. On an emotional
level knees represent ego and pride, an inability to bend, inflexibility, and
fear. Kundalini Yoga brings up our "stuff" very quickly to look at, not judge,
and through just noticing it, letting go. Are you practicing with a teacher
or alone? After each kriya are you giving yourself time to feel what's going on
inside (or outside)? Are you sending love and acceptance to whatever is
coming up? Perhaps siiting in a chair, practice the " I AM" Meditation and then sit
with what is coming up for you. Ayurvedically using turmeric, applying
medicated abhyanga oil with bala, ashwagandha, neem and juniper berry may be
helpful. Drink lots of pure water. What is your diet like? Watermelon, grapefruit and
pineapple might also bring some relief.
Blessings in Health!
