Transition to barefoot phase 1.2 exercise - foot yoga
馃懀
Play around with your feet to increase their mobility. Keeping the magical human foot in shoe captivity all day locks up the 33 joints that are designed to move and articulate independently
馃懀
Take 5 minutes and put your toes and foot in as many weird positions as possible. Better balance and foot stability are guaranteed to result

THIS is the photo I meant to post! Top of Foot Stretch! Jeez you'd think I could tell the diff between Calf Stretch and ToFS by now.
This pic shows a common fault when doing ToFS - the heel will roll out making it feel like you have more range of motion than you really do. Bring the heel in so that the foot is straight through its axis. You might not have all the toes on the ground now. Rolling the heel in and out is okay if you want to explore the top of the foot, but sitting in this position thinking you are doing the stretch is only missing out on the nutrients you could be getting.

Transition to barefoot phase 1.2 exercise (advanced)
馃懀
Double foot smash to open up the feet with a pair of lacrosse balls. Powerful mobilization that works on balance, feedback from the feet and frees up all the muscles under the foot while mobilizing those 33 important joints we sometimes forget to move
馃懀
Tolerable discomfort is fine but it might take a bit of work to build up to this if your feet are really stiff and tight. Daily foot maintenance is a mega element is whole body posture

Getting some gnarly muscles moving with Emma Kate at @fitnesskickflemington and trying to loosen what needs activity! This was surprisingly difficult to do without cramping, but after several reps it worked!
#footmobility #cramps #activebody @fitnesskickflemington @physiohealth

When your leg is behind your body notice if you have as much motor control as when it's in front. Does it feel like the foot has a mind of it's own or can you command it to do what you want it to. Proprioception changes completely when you change the limb position.

Your ankles are often prone to wear and tear due to many different reasons. Flat feet put your ankle in a compromised position, restrictive footwear can cause damage, lack of muscular flexibility can also be an issue and the list goes on.
.
Find time in your daily routine to mobilize the ankle and reverse some of the damage done. Ankle rotations are one of simplest and most effective techniques you can perform (and they make for pretty cool videos).
.
Today I felt some tightness in my ankles so I decided to do some rotations while sitting on the edge of a castle I visited. You can do these while you're sitting at your desk, lounging on your couch or just chilling at the bar. Just listen to your body and mobilize!

Hanging out at Discount Tire. So far, I've sat on the floor, done some foot/toe exercises, and opened up my shoulders using the windows. Half an hour to go. #movementopportunity #movement #footmobility #floorsitting #shouldermobility #yesthereareotherpeoplehere #dontcare #healingandbalance

So excited, it our last day of teaching to our wonderful groupe of trainees. So happy to be able to share this week with my friend and co-leader @lisa.evolution.lab and been able to create an environment for adaptation to occur. #mirrorneurons #thinkingteachers #ytutrain #teachertraining #footmobility #inspirerlechangementparlemouvement #ilovemyfriend

Focus on foot and knee mobility during next week's classes (check previous post for dates) 馃槂
Transitioning from Prasarita padottanasana to Utthita parsvakonasana.
Progression principle applied.
Video 1: shifting weight from side to side. Start in Prasarita Padottanasana and move to a side lunge. How is your foot and knee mobility and is there any difference between sides?

Move with the support of your blocks to start with and progress by shifting weight without support.

Video 2: Progress into Parsvakonasana by outwards rotating your one foot to a straight foot position while still keeping the heel of the foot on the mat. Then outwards rotate the hip as well. Once in Parsvakonasana, if wished, extend your arm above your head and get into the full Utthita Parsvakonasana.
Mobilita' delle caviglie e delle ginocchia.

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鈥) 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 鈥渢ell the brain鈥 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鈥檚 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 馃憤馃槉). Four open classes to practice with me next week:
馃尰 Monday 1820 at Balance Solna. 馃尰 Tuesday 1800 at Balance City. Yin & Yang.
馃尰Wesdneday 1815 at Balance Solna - Virya Rehab.
馃尰 Thursday 1805 at Balance City.
You are so very welcome !

Your foot and ankle combined house 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. Yet conventional wisdom tells you shoes are the true technology. That you need the latest thick-soled running shoe to unlock your potential...
.
This is a ruse. Your feet are dense with nerves, tendons, ligaments muscles etc. for a reason. No shoe can replicate the sensation and balance you feel when walking or running barefoot.
.
The closer you can get to barefoot the better. Keep it simple and work on your feet every day. Roll, stretch, walk and run, then do it all again.

Long layover in Frankfurt and all of the lounge areas are full. Needed a nap so I conquered 3 seats and promptly decided to do some lazy mobility exercises for my feet.
.
When traveling long distances make sure to incorporate some type of mobility every hour or so to avoid muscle soreness.
.
I did not follow this rule as I slept in the most contorted position possible for 7 hours and now my lower back is on fire. Cheers!

Working on my foot mobility even while I travel! @thefootcollective suggests rolling ea. foot for about 5 min.

Rainy morning stroll around the neighborhood with my girls in between downpours. The only one not still in her PJs is the baby 馃槃. In addition to the varied terrain lawn walking vs. sidewalk walking provides, I also enjoy walking across our neighbor's decorative rocks. I get a little balance practice and my feet and ankles get some variety - win, win!

Strength.
Weakness.
I've been thinking about how often we label a particular quality we have as a strength or a weakness. It's not really either except in context of your use of that quality.

I was a dancer. I don't mean I took some classes. I mean I was in class several hours a day most days a week. Dance was a big part of how I made my living for over a decade. But I had terrible feet for a dancer. Not particularly mobile. In fact, through my body my connective tissue, my tendons and ligaments and fascia, are tight. Really tight. The spaces in my joints are small. This meant struggling to get up and over my feet in pointe shoes. This meant ankle and foot injuries repeatedly through my career. This meant envying all those women with "amazing feet." My feet were a weakness.

These same feet at 51 don't look like they've been through the same trauma as my dancer friends' feet. They envy how my feet look barefoot and in sandals. The tightness that prevented me from dancing as well protected me from the severe bunions and foot injuries all those women are experiencing now. My feet feel good and healthy. My feet are a strength.

Same feet. Same tight joints. Different perspective. Weakness? Strength? Neither actually. They're as they've always been. Now I apply a description (tight connective tissue, minimal space in the joints) instead of applying judgment.
