The number of people challenged by foot pain or another foot issue is huge. Pain and other problems with the feet are some of the leading causes of preventing people from leading a more active lifestyle.
The feet are our foundation and what is going on in the feet can affect just about every other part of our body. With 33 joints in each foot, the feet are designed for movement. Yet they’ve been immobilized for decades in the shoes we wear and the uniformly flat surfaces we find in both our indoor and outdoor environments. When we load the rest of our body in rigid, weak, immobile feet other muscles and joints have to step in for the lack of strength and mobility in the feet. Without restoring function in the feet, this cycle continues and we have come to expect that balance and agility decrease with age and bone density and falls become a concern. It doesn’t have to be this way. Restoring strength, mobility and function to the feet is available at any age! That’s what this workshop is about.
“The longer we’ve been inactive, the less all our parts move, and the more we start doing things in life that repeat the [immobility] cycle.”– Katy Bowman
Whether your joint complaint is in your foot, knee, hip, shoulder, or neck, this workshop will provide a new perspective that can change your life. Because we walk on two legs (feet) every body part stacked above the feet is affected by your foot mechanics. Foot health can affect circulation, knees & hips, the pelvic floor, balance & coordination, and so much more!
If you’re ready to stop neglecting your feet, and start including the 25% of your muscles that exist below your ankles in your workouts, this workshop is for you. We’ll explore exercises that you can do at home to build strong and healthy feet.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
- Important daily foot exercises you can do at home
- How footwear choices affect foot health qualities to look for in shoes & how you can transition safely
- A deeper understanding of how your feet work
- How foot health relates to knees, hips, pelvic floor & more
- How to increase foot mobility & strengthen your feet to improve balance& prevent falls
- Ways to minimize bunions, address plantar fasciitis, & improve circulation to the feet
Leave the workshop feeling more connected to the ground, with feet that feel invigorated & happy!
