Foot Management – Level 1 Essentials

Summer and Fall 2020 – Zoom Dates TBD!

Learn Pilates from the ground up! All of our clients need help with their feet! Learn and practice not only foot and ankle exercises for the five arches of the feet, but learn mobilizations critical to longevity in foot health. Evolution is explained to better understand how we evolved into a bipedal human being.

More practical sessions focus on Pilates Apparatus-Specific Applications to promote fascial connections as well as isolation of the 5 arches of the feet. Detailed osteo-kinematics of the foot and ankle complex as well as the use of traditional Pilates foot props are explored along with the wobble board, balls and rollers. Transformational gait training completes the training by organizing the fascial slings that make this training a full body experience, in the tradition of Joseph Pilates’ whole body commitment concept of exercise.

We will examine innovative training concepts including short foot and barefoot training, Jump and Fascial Recoil Progressions, deep integration with the Pilates Environment.

This is an Intermediate to Advanced course.
