Toe Squat

Starting on hands and knees tuck your toes under and bring your hips back towards your heels. You can stay here if you’re already feeling this in the bottom of your feet, or you can left your hands and torso and sit upright. If this pose gets too much, you can bring your hands back to the floor to relieve some pressure, but try to keep your hips back towards your heels.

 

To exit slowly come back to your hands, untuck your toes and allow yourself to move. It can feel good to tap the tops of your feet on the floor or to simply sit back on your heels with the tops of your feet flat.

Props: You can roll up a towel and place it behind your knees to help make some space. Or you can kneel on a blanket if you need that support.
