Our subjective experience of the legs starts at the hips. The first segment of this session works on the hips. The second segment focusses on the ankle joint
The ankle joint, like the wrist, is delicate, making possible a large range of movement. Unlike the wrist, it faces the challenge of balancing the weight of our body, and therefore needs firmness.
We have two ankle bones on each feet – the inner and the outer. Being close to the base of the body, the ankle bones honestly reflect the quality of how we stand. Imbalances in the feet are reflected in the ankles. Conversely, building resilience in the ankles improves our balance, ankles prevents injuries, and improves deformities not just of the feet, but the entire leg.
This session works on the ankle joint through a series of standing asanas. Blocks are used to challenge the balance and the stability at the ankles.
