Do you practice yoga with your instep stretched or your feet hooked back? There is a third choice!

On the way of yoga, you should pay attention to when the soles of your feet touch the ground.

Students generally know how to exert force: let the soles of your feet compact the ground at three points (some people say four, but the principle is the same), press the big toe ball down and lift the arch of your foot.

It can not only stabilize the foundation, but also activate the strength of the lower leg and the inner thigh.

When the soles of their feet are off the ground, many students don’t know how to exert themselves.

For example, when sitting and bending forward, the soles of the feet are facing forward.

Many students’ feet are “asleep” without force, or even turn aside.

At this time, the thighs and calves are not started.

When sitting and bending forward, the feet should be hooked back, the heels and big toe balls should be pushed out, and the heels should press down slightly on the ground to start the calf muscles.

In sitting and standing forward flexion, there should be no objection to the foot hook, because the foot hook can stretch the back of the leg more, which is one of the main purposes of sitting and standing forward flexion.

However, it can be avoided by pressing the heel down on the ground without excessive back hook (as shown in the figure below): for some other postures, the postures with the feet completely off the ground, such as boat pose, half moon pose, holding the big toe up C, shoulder handstand, hand handstand, head handstand, etc., should the feet back hook or stretch the instep? In fact, there is a third option, which should be unfamiliar to many students.

There are three choices for foot movements.

The third choice is that the instep is taut, but the toes are hooked back.

In fact, it is the big toe ball kicking out, much like the combination of the first two.

When doing this, you can find more strength on the inside of the leg while starting the front of the thigh.

(the instep is taut and the toes are hooked back) if the toes are not hooked, this may happen (as shown in the figure below): the front sole of the foot is not unfolded, the arch of the foot is collapsed, the big toe ball is not pushed out, and the inner side of the leg is weak.

There is no absolute right or wrong of stretching instep, foot back hook and instep toe back hook.

Everyone’s body is different and the parts that need to strengthen exercise are different.

You can try three kinds and find a suitable one.

Which one do you use most, the instep, the foot back hook and the instep toe back hook? Welcome to leave a message- Message Award-   Welcome to leave a message.
