Using a small soft ball to hydrate and mobilise the connective tissue of the feet. Feel immediate release of tension and re-connection to the feet. As there are nerves in the feet that have a connection to the vulnerable lower vertebrae of the back, you may also find this a back and hip release. Including a very specific stretch of the smaller muscles of the calf this sequence is designed to improve ankle mobility and overall function.
Most of us have tight hips and areas of restriction that make performance of traditional Pilates exercises very difficult. In this class we utilise the Franklin Balls to facilitate correct movement to ensure the benefits of the exercise are achieved correctly. As a consequence, we will achieve release of tension and restriction caused by poor movement patterns.
An extremely powerful way to mobilise the muscles of both the front and back of the lower leg. This will create improved range of motion for the ankle & knee, improved foot function, increased length and facilitation of all of the muscles of the lower leg. All aspects of the foot and leg are addressed in this series. An excellent warm up prior to any exercise or sporting activity and as a maintenance routine to keep feet, knees and ankles moving well whilst reducing tightness and restriction of all associated muscles.
