About the Event
Benefits participants will gain from attending this Workshop:
- Knowledge of the feet and how it relates to the body as a whole.
- Overall foot health and techniques to both strengthen and mobilize the feet.
Ashley will teach from the Yogic perspective, viewing the foot as our connection to the earth and as part of the root chakra. Her goal is for the student to gain a renewed appreciation for their feet and how it affects the chain of the body. We will explore concepts such as drawing energy up through the arches during standing and balancing postures. Topics will include proprioception and weight distribution of the feet.
Chris takes a modern movement-centered approach to Physical Therapy and will teach key concepts for how to adapt to a new way of walking, and eventually, running. In this introductory course we will work on re-establishing our connection with the ground through our hands, feet, and the rest of the body. Assessments will help you know what to work on, and the movements will be the first step towards awakening your feet!
