The first half of this session is done dynamically in standing and seated forward extensions, while the second half focusses on spreading of calves for the same category of asanas.
Between the feet and the knee/ thigh, the lower parts of our legs – calves and shins – are often ignored. But their position makes them liable to a lot of stress and strain. From shin splits to varicose veins, problems manifest int eh lower legs. In Asana, the lower legs are important levers for making finer adjustments. We can often get stuck in our progression if the shins and calves are not trained as well.
This session gets into the ‘belly’ of the calf, to spread it, soften it, and extend it.
