Place a loop on the top of your knees on a hard, bony part; it should not slide on the quadriceps or cover the kneecap bone.
- It allows you to align the external and internal knee at the same distance from the ground, preventing thereby rolling your knees to the sides. We want the outer thigh to go up so that the inner knees would be heading down and in this way, the load exerted on the inner and outer sides of the knee would be equal.
- The strap acts more physical, taking the outer sides of the knee up. This solution enhances the movement of the outer knee upwards. Although the strap is placed on the hard structures of the knee, it rotates also the muscles from the outside to the inside.
- The rotation of the thighs inward in vajrasana and tying them up with a strap helps to relax the sacroiliac joints. The closer your knees are together, the more you will expand your lower back, which is important for people with back problems.
