DON’T BE DE-FEET-ED is a workshop exploring the connections of the distal: foot and ankle mechanics to the core. We are addressing balancing the foot and ankle muscles that influences our entire alignment. Our ankles influence our foot, hip and core mechanics. When the Distal relationship is working correctly, the core immediately works deeper.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Improving ankle function
  • Understand how the bones of the legs and pelvis move
  • What is stabilization of legs and hips: its myths and facts
  • Understanding the importance of the posterior leg muscles
  • How to improve function of the legs to bring in new core connections using Pilates Repertory.
  • Improving the coordination of legs to core during the workout
  • How the improved leg relationships enhances the core, posture and gait. We are especially looking at retraining the foot mechanics in relationship to posture and walking.
