腳指力 spread the toes
seated forward bend坐立前摺式
Ageing start at the lower extremities, so the ability to spread the toes is important 😝
Practicing activating the toes, make them separate 😌
It’s a lot of hard work, press the legs down, muscles hugging the bones, etc etc.Internally I can feel that if I just tighten up the body, it tensing my mind and I can’t breath smoothly and even the little toes tighten, pinky cramped 😅
So it definitely is a matter of balancing. About making an effort and letting go of effort to relax this mind-body complex, it’s about consciousness of bodily sensation as well as calmness of the brain.
