So I am trying to do a half decent childs pose, Im male and not that flexible not overweight. I will describe what I am having trouble with exactly:
I go on my knees, big toes of my feet touching, knees spread apart (find it more comfortable than close together ), as I lower myself to sit on my heels I feel pain/or real tightness on the top of my feet - along a line from big toe back to the ankle joint. Not being able to sit down any lower makes it hard to get a decent strech on my spine.
Hopefully the above explains it, but its like being in bed with the sheets tucked in too tight, I don't seem to have any flexibility to point my toes towards the end of the bed to make my foot ankle and leg all be a bit more flat.
Searching online has told me nothing, anyone have any ideas or am I just not able to do this pose? Or is there some small tightness I need to work on first?
