Our bones determine how we look when we exercise.
31 people in our yin yoga teacher training did a quick ankle compression test to determine the possible range of motion before our bones hit together when pulling our toes toward our face.
Then we moved into a dragon pose, to see how different an exercise would look based on bone compression.
Yup, that’s me, pulling up the rear of the class, and Shawna-Daniel Head, in it for the win. Check the carpenter’s angle near our feet to see how dramatically different our possible ranges of motion are.
