04 Nov Feet for Foundation
We walk, run and balance on them every day – while wearing shoes that constrict and contort them. Yet how often do we care for our feet in ways that ensure they can best support our body?
Enter Yamuna Zake, a US-based yoga teacher and world-renowned authority on a technique called Yamuna® Body Rolling (YBR), a simple, yet profound method developed over 15 years and one that targets the entire body. Now, she’s coming to Flex for a series of workshops, with one session focused just on the feet.
Why? “I learned over the years how little education is actually available to people to help them take care of their feet! The marketing of all sorts of products promise to help with all kinds of foot problems, yet none of them educate the consumer. I learned that with the right education and information, people can actually fix their own feet and keep them working at every age.”
She adds: the idea that we lock our feet up all day and then do nothing for them once we are out of shoes is crazy. We stretch and work out the rest of the body and yet the feet are left out of most fitness programs.
“There is something radically wrong with this picture. The feet actually need very little attention to stay in good working order.
“Once you begin working on your feet, you will see your legs, hips and back improve also. After you know how to practice Yamuna® Foot Fitness, you can find which routines work best for you and do as little as 5 minutes a day to keep your feet happy.
