@dorag – Fabulous! Yes, a low foot lock gives you a longer amount of fabric to work between the feet, and placing the hands low gives us the most room for back flexibility. Typically, you want to take some weight out of the joint you are rotating, in this case, shift the weight from ankle hang to the hands, so you don’t over tax the joint in rotation. And, while hips move in a variety of ways, we also typically suggest initiating rotation from the core out, so from the hips first. If you are starting to feel funky in the knee or hip from your knee first pathway, check in with you abs and glutes for support of the joints and/or try initiating the turn in the hip of the ankle hang leg. Happy training!
