A Practice for Tight Calves

with David Nelson

Duration: 10 min

Intensity: Low

Props: None

Class Description

Have you ever felt like your heels will never touch the floor in adho mukho svanasana (downward facing dog) or malasana (garland pose)? Have you yearned to place your palms flat on the ground in parsvottonasana (pyramid pose)? While tight hips and hamstrings often get a lot of blame for being limiting factors in these asanas, there's one typically overlooked area that might hold the key to “unlocking” these poses—the calves! Join David as he guides you through a few stretching exercises that focus on these muscles, and learn how “loosening” them can take your asana practice to the next level.
