Power house- Top Center Thigh

There are so many important points in poses that must be learned for a pose to be done correctly. But once a person is aligned in a pose and can focus on the actions of the asana, there is one that has brought more strength and has improved my practice that I have found carries to a large portion of other asanas in the first years learning yoga.

The top center thigh. The meatiest, centeriest, part of your thigh- typically right where your middle finger hits. When you learn to press that part of your thigh back to the bone you gain power in your legs that carries into other poses.

First learn the action in these poses, that we covered earlier in the blog
