The front sides of our legs and hips tend to be stronger than the back sides, so we bend our knees and pulse in the poses to make the back sides stronger. We hop lightly side to side, wide and narrow, and front to back. Dragging our heels isometrically back from the front part of our feet engages the back side of our feet all the way up through our legs and into the glute muscles. Our feet, legs, and hips become stronger on all sides, and we feel more "rooted."
Come strengthen your roots with us in class!
