YogaToesยฎ  The YogaToesยฎ breakthrough comes from one powerful realization: all standing power, balance, and movement is controlled by toes ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ. Get #toesmart:

@tmanrockstheboat askin' the hard questions.
ใƒปใƒปใƒป
How alive are your feet? Our feet keep us grounded, help us stand, walk, balance, jump, play, etc., but how often do we give them the attention they deserve? We might roll them with a golf/lacrosse ball, but what about teaching the nervous system how to STRENGTHEN and CONTROL the intrinsic muscles of the feet? Try some of these drills on your own, and see how you do. No need to beat yourself up if you can't do them. Be patient and compassionate with yourself.

Start working towards having strong healthy feet โœ…
๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
Your feet adapt to what you expose them to and how you use them. Strong and stable arches are a result of gradual work to build up intrinsic foot muscle strength and hip control to prevent the leg from collapsing in
๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
Your feet become flat when aren't able to control them anymore. And then they stay flat if we never work on them and use artificial support
๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
Start with some foot maintenance work, and work on something simple like single leg balance. Spend more time barefoot, wiggling your toes around and just being aware of your feet. And go from there...it's a process! Take it slowly, but take back control of your feet and body ๐Ÿ‘

#yogatoes I promise these things are the best things ever created especially if you stand up a lot during the day or do a lot of walking/running. Ohhh! ...and to give your toes a break from those stilettos ๐Ÿ˜† #treatyourfeet #youonlygetonepair #thankmelater

The Simple Truth... from the moment you were born, your mother's love is in every beat of her heart. Her love never ends. It never will. This, is motherhood.

Toe and midfoot mobility work
๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
This video demonstrates 3 ways to open up your feet. It starts with the big toe, working on extension (which we have stressed the importance of). It then goes over splaying all of the toes out. Finally, the lacrosse ball is used in a different way to open up the plantar fascia and midfoot joints
๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
Spend 2-3 minutes a foot doing a combination of these exercises. As we add more and more to the repertoire of exercises, pick and choose the ones you like, and perform different ones at different times
๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฃ
The general principle of this phase remains the same: open the foot up in different ways to get the joints and tissues moving better, and continue to follow it up with balance, conscious walking barefoot, and a gradual increase in the time spent barefoot during each day

How to start the weekend ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Œ @wellnessfoxx

Hey there @serenewilkenfit
ใƒปใƒปใƒป
I โค my #yogatoes Gems! We all know that shoes can be bad for our feet. YogaToes stretch and exercise the intrinsic muscles of the feet (muscles that originate and insert on bones within the foot). Foot strength directly influences proper foot mechanics, gait patterns, ankle stabilization, and whole-body balance! And it feels so yummy!
