This Week In Nithya Priyan School of Yoga, join us as we work on splits. More specifically, we’re focusing on the action of straightening the leg in any variation of splits you’re working on. Splits, in general, require an awareness and understanding of both external and internal rotation of the hip to keep the hips square. In addition to that, to straighten the legs while keeping the hips square, we would need to tap into the strength of the glutes, core and quads to extend the energy all the way to the toes.
Join us all week as we explore the combination of these actions on the mat!
