Do walk your feet!
A couple of weeks ago at the beach, a mum and her daughter passed by and dip their feet into the sea. When it was time to leave, the mum told the girl to walk out of the water, put on her flip-flops and come along. The poor girl did at least five tries to do so, screaming louder and louder for every time she tried to walk on the beach. The problem was that to walk shortly and reach her shoes, she had to walk on a stony beach and that hurt... This brings to a simple conclusion: we cannot anymore use our feet properly! Most of our time we (have to, in Sweden during winter…) keep the feet immobilized in shoes. This reduces foot (and knee) mobility, compromising whole body awareness, since our foot sole works similarly to other sensory organs, and continuously “tell the brain” how we should align and position the rest of our body every single step we take or whatever standing position we adopt.
So the message is: Do walk your feet! And do it right! Come out of your shoes whenever you can and walk the feet on several types of surfaces (not only flat!). During next week’s yoga classes we use transitions from one to another standing position to enhance strength and mobility of the foot and knee joints (check @livia_fitness later tonight to see one of the transitions we are going to practice 👍😊). Four open classes to practice with me next week:
🌻 Monday 1820 at Balance Solna. 🌻 Tuesday 1800 at Balance City. Yin & Yang.
🌻Wesdneday 1815 at Balance Solna - Virya Rehab.
🌻 Thursday 1805 at Balance City.
You are so very welcome !
