Continuing from the previous sessions, we continue to focus on hip and groin action. Although we do not reach padmasana in this session, we reach some interesting milestones.
The padmasana leg position is of significance both as a recommended posture of meditation, as well as the interesting ways in which it combines the actions of the various muscles and joints of the legs.
This session has strong knee flexion – this action is contraindicated for people with knee injuries.
