I have been thinking about the foot and its importance to posture and walking. Like many of my clients, I have hyperextended legs. As a dancer, teachers would cue tucking the pelvis and pulling the ribs down to solve the problem of hyperextended backs. I have come to realize the bigger issue is the organization of the feet. With hyperextended legs, there is a imbalance of the foot and calves. Once rediscovered, the connection to the legs and core is ignited in a dynamic way.
Pilates on Tour, synchronicity came into my life. Taking workshops with Phillip Beach, author of Muscles and Meridians and Marie Jose Blom, her workshop on Striding Ahead, deepen my knowledge of the foot and my intuition about this connection. Phillip has a series of exercises about opening of the feet. FusionFitnessOnline has a wonderful online workshop about Phillip’s work.
This next weekend we will explore the feet in my upcoming workshop about Gait.
