These feet are made for walking

On our silent retreat, my friends and I explored a magical forest in Drente, The Netherlands.

It made me realize how important our feet are and I would like to dedicate this class to the health of our arches.

Did you know that each foot is made up of 26 bones, 30 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments?

All of them work together to provide support, balance and mobility.

Impressive engineering…

We have three important arches in our feet:

Medial arch ( the inner arch. )

Lateral arch ( the outer arch. )

Transversal arch ( the arch from left to right. )

Function.

Our arches create space for the soft tissue and facilitate an elastic property which acts as a spring.

This reduces the risk of skeleton wear and tear.

When we are walking, the soft tissue can spread ground contact reaction forces, store the energy of these forces, return it at the next step and thus reduce the cost of walking.

Brilliant, right?!

In our practice, today, we will find many ways to nurture and strengthen our feet.

Please bring a Yoga block or a small pillow to class.

Reminder:

Our practice is at TWO PM TODAY.

Again…thanks for facilitating the European time zone.

Much love,

Marielle
