There are 33 joints, 26 bones, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments in our feet. All to say, the foot is a complex mechanical structure that we’re maybe not paying enough attention to.
How we stand and how we use our feet dictates how the rest of our body moves, functions, looks, and feels; so, it’s pretty important to make sure our feet are feeling good. (If even one piece of our foot puzzle is off, our entire gait can suffer).
So, all to say, welcome to the foot series!
This is a series to reawaken, mobilize, release, and strengthen our feet and change how we stand + walk through space. The end goal is to create healthy, supple, and strong feet which will in turn provide a strong foundational support for our body and take some pressure off of our knees, hips, and low back.
In essence, this series is really an intro daily foot routine and then just 2 long videos; however, each long video is broken down into more manageable shorter videos which means you can A. Take the time to learn the full class, working the foot in each component of the whole, and B. Squeeze in a foot workout when you can in your day (I’m not naive to the fact they may not be your desired focus when you have time to exercise).
Even just a short time investing in yourself each day can transform your feet and improve your overall body function and health!
