Point Your Toes!

Pointed toes don’t just look pretty 💁🏻‍♀️ They encourage the leg muscles to engage and switch on 🔆 When the legs are engaged they’re working FOR you, helping lift you up or open you up. Otherwise they’re just dead weight—and the legs are pretty heavy so that’s a lot of extra weight you’re having to work with! 

Try this in your next practice, and not just with these three postures but with your handstand kicks or lifting your legs up in your headstand. Use your powerful leg muscles to take you further in your postures! 

You’ll see that you have a lot of strength you didn’t know you possessed already there ready and waiting .
