Find Strength Through Your Feet

Desiree Rumbaugh & Michelle Marchildon

Fearless After Fifty, Chapter One

If we’re honest, aging can bring a host of challenges. We won't always feel our best or our strongest, but we can practice yoga in a way that supports our vitality and muscles. In time, this will translate into a stronger practice on our mats and in our life.

To build strength, we start with the feet. The feet can become tight and rigid, losing flexibility and overall strength. We start with the feet because they have to support us for many years to come and are often overlooked in our practice. Exercises include how to massage and care for your feet. How to strengthen and how to flex, point and "floint." Yoga poses demonstrated with correct foot alignment include Mountain (Tadasana), Forward Fold (Uttanasana), Hero's Pose (Virasana), Half Moon (Ardha Chandrasana), Seated Wide Angle (Upavistha Konasana), and Extended Leg Pose (Supta Padangusthasana). Approximately 30 minutes. This class is mostly a demonstration of poses with detailed alignment for you to practice.
