The idea came from the feedbacks and my observation from the students. I appreciate all those comments that drive me to rethink and redesign what and how I can help along the journey ❤️ Quadriceps muscle (quads) is the front part of our thigh. To lengthen the quads muscle length, the simple thing to do is to STRETCH and STAY for few more breaths. Let the muscles recognise the feelings of being stretched and lengthened, but NOT the feelings of being torn. Release the pose or stop the stretching when you feel it's enough for you or extremely discomfort.
When you feel knee pain, perhaps because of direct contact to your thin mat, feel free to use folded towel under the bending knee. If your quads are flexible, you can drag your back knee slightly backward to place your very front part of thigh onto the mat to increase the area of direct contact to your mat.
Sometimes, you feel your thighs are tight, it is highly likely the same for your hip flexor. Option 1 to 2 are good for hip flexor stretch. If your quads are ready to go more, Option 3 and 4 are the challenges you might want to take. This video finally prepares you to come to Option 5, a beautiful low crescent lunge with backbend if you stretch your body right. Time is your best witness.
Yoga is for everyone. No age boundary or gender. Choose your option! 😊
