The lower leg and foot form the foundation for many yoga poses. For this reason it is important to have a functional understanding of the major muscles of the lower leg and foot. Minor chakras are present in the foot that contribute to illuminating the first and second major chakras.

For ease of understanding it is useful to divide the many muscles in this region into groups identified by their function.

The major functions include flexing, extending, everting and inverting the foot. In the foot itself the muscles are categorized into flexors and extensors of the toes.

These illustrations demonstrate the major muscles performing these actions.
