Yoga Bird King style legs/arms unable to wrap? You must know these 5 key anatomical points!

The Bird King pose, a poetic yoga posture, is not only a comprehensive exercise of body balance, coordination, flexibility, and strength, but also a baptism of the soul. When practicing the Bird King style, many yoga enthusiasts may encounter the problem of their legs or hands not being able to wrap together, and the reasons behind this are worth exploring in depth..

In the world of yoga, every pose contains knowledge of human anatomy. The Bird King pose, as a posture that showcases body elegance and strength, is closely related to our hip joint function..

The hip joint, a crucial part connecting the lower limbs and pelvis, allows us to move freely in multiple directions. From flexion to extension, from internal rotation to external rotation, and then to adduction and abduction, every movement provides support for our daily activities and yoga practice..

In the Bird King style, there are special requirements for the internal rotation and adduction function of the hip joint. Internal rotation, which means rotating the thighs inward to make the knees face the opposite direction; Internal adduction refers to the inward movement of the thighs, bringing them closer to the midline of the body. The combination of these two movements allows us to wrap one leg around the knee of the other leg from the front, and then wrap the calf around the back of the other leg, presenting a beautiful posture like a bird king..

However, if our hip joint lacks internal rotation and adduction function, then this integrated approach becomes extremely difficult. The inability to tightly wrap the legs not only affects the stability and aesthetics of the posture, but is also more likely to cause injury due to incorrect posture..
