In many yoga poses, it’s possible to activate your inner thighs to help tighten and strengthen them.
Here are some tips:
- In Tadasana, think of spiraling your inner thighs towards the back of the room. Activate them by keeping your feet in the same position and engaging your quads. As you fold forward, keep spiraling them towards the back.
- In Warrior II, externally rotate the front leg. Think of your inner thigh wrapping up and around the medial portion of your thigh to the outer thigh.
- In chair pose, with your knees bent try to keep the knees directly over the second toes. Don’t allow your legs to open; keep them hugging in towards the midline to engage your inner thighs
