feet and yoga

a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step       Lao Tzu

When I teach a yoga class I usually include a couple simple stretches for the feet. One is curling your toes under like photo and also coming to the tops of the feet  both can be done standing, setting in a chair or from your knees.



This images by Ulrika Laan are dramatic but variations can be done and every body doesn’t have bendy feet like these but the blog post by hearts expanding also has great alternatives.

There are so many reasons for us to care for our feet, from simply stretching, soaking or going for a pedicure, but  the web site How Stuff Works has great ideas and info.
