We are thrilled to be able to offer Yamuna Foot Fitness to our clients. Correct walking patterns, routines on the wakers, and additional routines using the balls will bring your feet back to healthy function. Did you know that Yamuna Foot Fitness is an excellent remedy for Plantar Fasciitis and Morton’s Neuroma? You’ve been using your feet for a lifetime; why not make sure they help you glide easily into the years ahead. Your overall posture will improve, you’ll feel a new-found strength in your legs, and you’ll have the freedom to wear whatever shoe strikes your fancy. If you dance, or are involved in sports, you will see a noticeable improvement in your performance. Your feet provide the foundation for your entire body, yet most of us take our feet for granted……..that is until they start to give you problems. Often, your podiatrist will recommend some sort of surgery to “correct” the problem. If we don’t change our walking pattern, even with surgery, these problems will re-appear. Why not change our foot structure, and get to the root of the problem, correct it ourselves and avoid painful and expensive surgery?
Not to mention these classes are so much fun and informative. Our aim is to make sure each client’s needs are met with hands-on assists, and personalized goals to make sure you are set up for success. All we ask is that you do your homework – meaning doing the routines at home on a regular basis. After a bit, your feet will crave being on the Yamuna Foot Wakers.
As you do the Foot Waker routines, and practice “mindful walking”, you will notice a new sensation of strength and power in your feet which transfers up through your entire body. Yes, we know, in Los Angeles, we don’t do a whole lot of walking; we are always in the car, but we still have opportunities to focus on how you take each step, and how important it is to have an awareness. After time, it will become automatic. Then, this technique can be transferred into whatever sport or dance genre you do. You’ll really start to have a sensation of your ENTIRE foot as you move. We like to give the image of gracefully swimming dolphins as the way your feet should be moving. You will be employing all the muscles of your foot to communicate and work as an entire mechanism, rather than one big block. And yes, being barefoot is a good thing!
