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.

Equipment: Block
Style: Hatha Yoga

Amazingly effective
ejanedelong 4 years ago

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.

This is quite lovely

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

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!

Very nice indeed

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

Helps Un-Cramp Feet

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

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

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...

foot drop

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.
