This short yoga flow is designed to strengthen and stretch your calves.
Some qualities we'll cultivate for the calves in this video are:
- Strength. Strong calves help move you forward, especially when going uphill.
- Balance. You'll have the option to come onto your tip-toes. This change in stance not only activates the calves. You might also notice your ankle muscles responding to the shift in your center of gravity.
- Flexibility and relaxation. Stretching the calves in a relaxed space helps to prevent your muscles from "gripping".
Props for this class:
- 2 blocks
- 1 wall (optional)
