What can I do to alleviate the stress on my hips and knees in all these positions? That's limiting my ability to stay in these longer Yin poses.

If you are on your back I think you need to bend your knees enough to ease the strain on your lower body. Hopefully Sarah-Jane can confirm this...

Hi Sarah, Props are great for longer holds. A rolled up blanket at the back of your knees would be the first suggestion, and a bolster under your hips could also be added if needed.
