Yoga Exercise - Ankle Rotation



The ankle is considered as one of the most vulnerable joints in the body. Excessive training and repeated stress on your ankle can result to stress fractures and muscle or tendon strain which can lead to Arthritis. Exercising the ankle can help prevent these kinds of injuries by making it more flexible and increasing blood flow.

The following is a basic Ankle Rotation Exercise to help you improve the condition of your ankle:

  1. Sit on the floor, you may lean your back against a wall. Extend your legs fully in front of you.
  2. Tightly roll your Yoga Mat or Yoga Blanket and put it under your knees, then place your palms on the floor. Your fingers must be pointing towards your hips.
  3. Breathing freely and slowly, bend your right foot towards you, creating a right angle with the floor. Slowly rotate your foot clockwise for about 10-15 times then rotate it counterclockwise. Do not allow the knees to move.
  4. Repeat twice on the same foot then do the same to your left. After constant practice, you can do this Ankle Rotation Exercise on both feet at the same time.

Learning the basic Ankle Rotation can help you develop a better ankle suitable for Yoga.
