  1. Hi LarryD517, Thank you for replying. It is more so when I cross my legs. It is slightly uncomfortable when I do the asana that you attached but more so on my knees and I can't touch my heel with my bum. The top of my feet ache when I sit crossed legged and it feels very uncomfortable. I have tried using blankets/matts/blocks too. Thanks again.
  2. Hello all. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could share their expertise in solving a problem I have. I really struggle with sitting poses which I understand is common, being a man. However, the pain comes from the top of my foot, just after the ankle meets the foot. I have researched foot anatomy and I think it is called the inferior extensor retinaculum I would like to loosen my hips/pelvis and be able to be comfortable in sitting down poses ( sitting crossed legs, child's pose, any poses which involves being at ground level ) but this pain in my foot prevents me from practicing for any longer than a minute! I feel it is preventing me from advancing in classes, as I am fairly competent at standing, bending and twisting poses but any asanas that involve sitting, I point blank cannot do! Thanks! Michael
