Yoga practice to create ankle stability and learn to squat (malasana)
≤30 min. Despite how easy it might look, squats take practice and lots of attention to strengthening actions such as dorsiflexion of the feet. Learn how to gain stability and ease as you progress in the posture. Malasana is a deep squat with many complexities because of all the joints and muscles involved in the pose. Fortunately one of the things that we all do every day, eg., sit can be a way to practice getting into and out of a squat; it often takes a while to have any comfort in the pose. But stick with it and you will notice greater mobility in ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, and spine. You may want to use blocks, a blanket, and a chair to get the full benefits of this practice.
