Sometimes it feels like there are so many different options available in the yoga practice. As a beginner practitioner this can get confusing and even a little daunting. So do you have your feet together or apart in this simple but very key pose?
Having your feet under your hips works well for the majority of people as it’s a more natural stance and can help you feel more stable, spacious and secure – compared to feet together which is a narrower base to balance the body weight across. Everyone has a unique anatomy with individual proportions and so the spacing between the feet can look very different across many bodies.
The feet together could work just fine too for many people and can help to build awareness of the inner arches of each foot, connect to our centre and add a challenge to our balance. Sometimes it is nice to bring the feet together before we move into a narrow stance in a chair pose which can also be a great set up if you are moving into a twist.
