Hi Tanvi!
Great question. I'd slide a something thin and durable between the thighs (for the feeling of firm resistance). It could be a thin, large, hardcover book or even a cutting board. The idea is to get the feeling of some hard resistance back so the body goes, AH, I feel that! You can also squeeze the legs together, but I like getting something firmer in there for the feedback. You can just do that in tadasana, and then once you've got the feeling of it, take it out. Let me know how that goes!

Fresh clear mind

Searching “empower” on do yoga with me, I found “empower your boundaries”...

Thank you for watering strength in spirit

Drinking light
Sludge falls away
“Heart melts forward”
No longer chained back

Shiva’s fire cleansing
Death and fear fall away
Bhrama’s breath
Carries her ash
Krishna in Eagle
Circles and washes the pain
Circles and waters new growth
Circles and rises to light

Interesting work with block and strap. It helps remind you to keep focused on the mid-line.

Thanks and looking forward to this my second challenge since becoming a member.

This class was fascinating and it is definitely one that I will repeat. I need more work on the outsides of my hips for sure!

Nice class to understand more about the inner and outer aspects of the legs in poses.

Highly recommend especially as you progress in your practice.
