Yoga Therapy for the Neck and Feet

Beginner I

This therapeutic sequence starts with a short, comprehensive series of neck exercise, then moves on to our often-neglected feet. Over 25% of our body’s bones are in our feet, and they hold up the whole weight of our body for hours every day.

If you do a lot of walking or running, or have flat feet, this class will help return suppleness and strength, increase range of motion, rebuild arches and improve stability.

I've currently got a shoulder injury, so was searching for lower body workouts. This is great . I also have sore feet ( various issues) and this sequence really freed up tight feet and soothed the aches. Yes, I'll try to do it every day!

Listen, I'm on my feet for a solid 15 hours a day, this video has literally changed my life and I will be sharing it with everyone I know! For the first time in years my feet weren't sore after work because of this video! Thank you!

Hi Lennybop,
I'm so glad to hear this has helped you and your poor feet! I don't know how you can be on your feet - or even in shoes - for 15 hours a day. I'm out of shoes as much as possible, so can only imagine how your poor feet must feel. I'm happy to pass on these exercises and give you some relief.

Keep up the fancy foot work!
Erica

I had a very terrible neck injury over a year ago and these exercises have helped me in just the few times I've done them! Do you have any more neck strengthening/stretching exercises?

Hi Gentileah,
you can check my youtube channel for other neck exercises, but if you do these ones every day, you will definitely find the benefits. I have gone for periods where I do it every day for three weeks, and notice such a huge difference from these simple moves.
keep it up, and good luck with it!

I am on my feet 8 hours daily at work and woke up this am with pain in my feet, ankles and knees. Within a few minutes of completing this dvd, all pain vanished and I felt renewed energy throughout my body. Feeling grateful -- thank you so much. I will definitely buy the ball and make this a daily practice.

I frequently get a sore neck, either from sleeping in a bad position or from stress (or possibly just being on the computer/reading) and the neck exercises are wonderful and my neck feels like it never hurt in the first place! Thanks!

I'm so glad you find relief for your neck! I find these neck stretches and strengtheners are deceptively simple. When you practice them every day, even for a couple of weeks, you can really notice a difference. Keep up the great work!

Thank you for allowing me to mindfully focus my attention on the two most sore and tire areas of my body.

I especially love the work you do with your feet. It's perfect for helping get all those cramps and aches out, and I would recommend it to anyone who walks barefoot, on shoes without great soles, or in heels. I'd also imagine it would help you stand on your toes longer, therefore increasing your performance in push ups, certain yoga poses, and, once again, walking in heels. Thanks for sharing!

oh, yes, our feet are neglected, aren't they? Such hard workers in the body, but not as the rest! I'm glad you found some relief with these stretches. I'm a barefooter, myself, so know all about it!

Thank you for sharing this. I have foot drop in both feet from being ill. I use to do yoga quite well, but never realized how difficult it is when one is disabled. This class is great (although I use other classes) because it addresses my feet which I need soooo much! Thanks Erica Fitch!!!

Hey Lilylangtree - thank YOU for practicing! Our feet seem to be overlooked, and it's true that when you lose some of their mobility and strength, you notice it in everything! Keep on practicing, and lift those arches! You'll be back to your old self in no time...

It definitely helps me. Indeed, I never paid very much attention to my feet until I could no longer walk!! I do walk now, and even drive and ride a bicycle. It took a lot of work, but worth it all!! I could be sitting in a wheelchair, I am so grateful I didnt give up. Thanks again for sharing Erica.

Hey Lillylangtree,
Erica here. Yes, it's easy to take our body and our physical abilities for granted until they are suddenly gone! And with how many distractions we have, it takes a lot of work to be present enough to our body to know what needs tending to. I'm glad these exercises help and that you are dedicated enough to give yourself the movement medicine that you need.
Keep up the good work!
Erica
