Video 210 | Yoga for the Foot (35 Minute Workout) with Lauren Eirk
30 Minutes • 11-May-2021
Any exercise modality will require the foot and ankle to have enough strength and rigidity to propel the body forward as well as enough mobility to adapt to the surfaces that we walk on. However, due to our lifestyles and shoe choices, our feet are often the weakest part of the body. The strength and mobility of the foot influences the knee, hip, trunk, spine, and shoulders. The strength and mobility of the knee, hip, trunk, spine, and shoulders also affect the foot. Many foot issues are not caused from the foot, even though many therapies are centered around passive stretching, massage, and immobilization of the foot and ankle.
In this video, get a short explanation of basic foot mechanics and the cause of plantar fasciitis (fast forward as needed to go straight to the routine) followed by many yoga-based isometric and dynamic strengthening exercises to help you to activate weak muscles and better distribute mechanical stresses in the lower body. These exercises can help to create a strong, stable base for the foot and ankle.
