Time to Give Your Feet some Pilates Attention?

By Julie Cheifetz,

I recently attended two workshops on feet – one with Pilates elder Lolita San Miguel and the other called Anatomy in 3D of the Lower Leg and Foot with Cari Riis Stemmler, owner of Paragon Pilates and Physical Therapy. Cari shared some techniques to develop and maintain foot strength and flexibility. I appreciated her imagery of thinking of the sole of the foot as we do our spine, and learning to articulate through the toe, ball and heel. After performing the entire series of exercises on one foot, we walked around the room and could all feel a difference in the foot that we had worked. Mine felt lighter, the arch felt lifted, and I could feel all of my toes hitting the floor with each step.
