Training your foot and leg mobility is fundamental to a happy dance or yoga practice.

What is mobility? You can define mobility as ‘usable ranges of motion’. To move freely within our dance or yoga practice, we need to have adequate ranges of motion, strength through our ranges, and a level of control of our individual joints. Only then we can produce smooth coordinated motion and distribute forces evenly throughout the body. Stiffness, restrictions, and in some cases, pain are signs that mobility may be compromised. Stretching the muscle is often not enough, you want the muscles to be able to ‘carry’ the amount of movement. 

In this workshop we are focussing on the feet and legs. Those poor feet are often very overlooked, yet they are literally the foundation of all standing movement in dance and yoga. Strong and mobile feet make your life so much better, integrating the feet with legs makes you feel like flying. 

In this workshop we will focus on: intrinsic foot muscles, extrinsic foot muscles, ankle joint, calves, quads, adductors, hamstrings.
