Yoga for Thighs and Feet: Yoga Sequence for the Lower Body
Supporting, balancing, and propelling the body is the work of the muscular system of the legs and the feet. From the large, strong muscles of the buttocks and the legs to the tiny, fine muscles of the feet and toes, these muscles can exert tremendous power while constantly making small adjustments for balance whether the body is at rest or in motion.
Our feet take the weight and pressure of the body. Unbeknownst to us, this pressure affects the entire body and begins to manifest in the form of aches and pains not only in the feet, but at the hips, lower back and the neck as well. Hence, working on these muscles through various yoga poses, right from the tips of the toes to the hips, helps in keeping both the anterior and the posterior muscles active with a good flow of blood.
Using a few unconventional yoga poses the yoga sequence here advocates enjoying the flow and being aware of all the muscles, irrespective of their size, importance and functions. We mostly work with yoga poses that give more importance to the bigger muscles, not considering that there are many other smaller muscles which are deep within our skin that play a greater role.
When we talk of the foot, remember that it comes with moving of the entire lower body and hence the poses are related to the hips, thighs, knee, shin, ankle and toes.
