2pm - 5pm

Clayfield Yoga Studio, cnr Vine St & Wagner Rd, Clayfield


The health, or compromised health, of our feet has ramifications throughout the rest of our body. At birth a healthy foot has a wide toe base with flexible spacious toes. As a toddler we distributed our weight correctly and moved freely with an upright posture. We could squat easily and comfortably. 

So what happens between birth, toddler-hood and adulthood?                                                                    

Our feet, like the rest of our body, reflect our life.                                                                                    

Let's recreate easeful, pain free feet and ankles that allow us the ease and freedom to walk and run and jump and squat and balance, and whatever else we may choose. We do this by mobilising and strengthening our feet just as we would our legs or core or any other part of our body.                               

Experience and become a "Free the Feet" advocate.                                                                          

Our feet ground us, literally and figuratively. They are our contact with the earth and the energies that flow through it. They are our base, our foundation. A steady foot means stability and security. When we ‘lose our footing’ we lose our equilibrium and sense of balance. Our body, and our mind, know this whether we think about it consciously or not.

On a deeper spiritual level, we also know that this grounding contact with the earth is rooted in who we are as people, that we are made of the elements just as the world around us.

Structurally and energetically, our feet influence the rest of our body. Think 'bottom up' - feet, knees, hips, spine, neck, head.

What to bring:

- a towel

- a pair of socks

Please wear clothes that allow for unrestricted movement.
