When the ankles are a problem in Virasana and Supta Virasana, kneel on a blanket stack, with the toes trailing off the back edge.

It’s a wonderful thing when you get up into Full Arm Balance (Adho Mukha Vriksasana) for the first time. The next thing she has to learn: lift the inner ankles, the inner edges of the feet and the big toe mounds.

Prasarita Padottanasana (shown here with the head up). Working with a belt will help you to roll and then press the outer edges of the feet down, hit the inner knees away from each other and pull the inner thighs up into the inner groins, and back. Once learned, dispense with the belt.
