“The yoga I did with you this week was enlightening. I hadn’t realised how important it is to have the correct feet positioning. You explained it so clearly; it is helping my backache.”
This feedback from Tuesday’s class shows just how important the positioning of the feet are in yoga. In standing poses the feet are the base of the pose and if they are not correctly aligned then the pose will be out of alignment – and yes, if the feet are not working there will be repercussions in other parts of the body, in this case causing backache.
This lovely image shows all the parts of the feet that should be pressing the floor in Tadasana.
