February 28, 2018

Strength in your legs and feet is very important for your overall health. Strengthening your feet and toes help you with a better posture. Let us see how you can make your feet and ankles strong and flexible with these yoga exercises.

  1. Tadasana

Possibly the simplest but most effective asana, this tadasana/mountain pose helps promote foot strength. In order to do this, you first need to:

  • Straighten your knees
  • Keep your soles flat on the earth in an upright position
  • Change over your feet close to each other; however, your heels must be separated.
  • Make sure your arms are relaxed
  • Hold your arms by your sides and gaze ahead
  1. Trikosana

The triangle pose or Trikosana is beneficial for people who have problems in the feet. In order to do this pose:

  • Spread your feet wide apart from one another while standing up
  • Make sure you’re completely standing straight up and then turn your body so that your arms are horizontal to your feet
  • Now clean up your right leg and flex your hip down to the side.
  • You should grip the left arm with the left shin.
  • Immediately lift your other arm straight upwards.
  • Bend your head and look towards the raised arm.
  • Repeat for the other side in the same way. Make sure to feel a stretch in your hip

3.    Kapotasana

The Kapotasana or pigeon pose is a complete body workout. In order to do this pose, you must:

  • Kneel down on the ground and hold your spine square or at a 45 degree angle.
  • Stretch your right leg out behind you, so that it’s close to your face.
  • Keep expanding your good leg until your left knee and foot are adjacent to the right hip.
  • Your toes should remain as straight as possible too.
  • Tilt forward and breathe in deep.
  • Force your chest outwards.
  • This pose is reminiscent of a bridge in gymnastics and should be done slowly and carefully.
  •  For flexibility, make sure your toes and your fingers can touch each other and hold it in this position for a while to reap maximum benefits.
