THE PROPER WAY OF USING A YOGA STRAP TO INCREASE HAMSTRINGS FLEXIBILITY.

Posted by Paul Zaichik on

When teaching hamstring flexibility techniques most Yoga teachers simply place the strap under the sole of the foot.
And this is used in various positions such as sitting and supine.
Strap under the sole of the foot works in Yoga but only under two conditions.
Number one: The stretch is passive what is what most Yoga stretches are.
Number two: The ankle is pretty tight.
If the stretching technique is moving such as ZST’s are, there is a much higher chance that the strap will fly off. At the same time if the ankle is flexible the toes will be pulled towards the body and the strap can easily slide off as well.
In EasyFlexibility we use a “heel to toe” set up. This is a set up that prevents the strap from sliding off and at the same time correctly stretches the whole posterior chain including the lower leg. A strap is placed behind the heel, crisscrossed over from under the foot and pulled through behind the toes.
This set up works for standing, sitting and supine position. Here the effort is not on a strap staying in strength and all the energy and focus can be on lengthening the muscle.
