Active Yogi: Twist and Squat

This is as close to catchy headline writing as I’ll get: “Twist and Squat,” my latest post for Active Yogi, my Yoga Journal blog. Depth in a squat, as in every asana, is dependent on both your soft tissue and your skeleton. While the model (my handsome husband, Wes) wouldn’t self-identify as flexible, he’s a good squatter; his ankle bones let him keep his feet flat as he squats. In fact, it’s his go-to position for tense football games.
