Many people in our culture have a difficult time with a squat position because the closest we get to the floor is a chair. The squat position is essential to creating balance and ease in our hips and legs. It massages the internal organs to create better circulation. The deep squat position is a birthing position that creates flexion in the pelvis, feeds the femur deep into the hip socket and nutates the coccyx which stretches the back of the pelvic floor. Most people in our culture need to be brought into the deep squat progressively, making sure that the hips, knees and ankles are in agreement. Using a door frame to engage the mid-back and support under the heels can help.
