Workshop 1: Feet: “Put your Foot Down, Stand Tall and Jump for Joy”

Next course: date to be announced

“Our feet form the foundation of our bodies. It is now proven that weakness or instability within the feet will inevitably have a detrimental affect on muscles and joints throughout the body, leading to poor posture and even injury.”

Course contents:
The feet are the foundation on which the body rests. Therefore “FEET FIRST” is the philosophy of this course. We will make a study of the legs and feet of those present, standing and walking, analyse the information, show how to identify physical “mismanagement” in feet, ankles, knees and hips and assist participants to realign their feet and legs and become fully aware of the carriage of their bodies. A large number of exercises will be practiced and learned. Emphasis will be placed on a safe, responsible progression of exercises aimed at achieving optimum movement, stability and strength within these areas. Whether for a supreme athlete or someone less active, prevention of injury is the priority. Rehabilitation is a close second. Happy feet make ageing so much more comfortable.

“I have been given the tools to correct my bad postural habits, which have slowly changed the shape of my body, and there has been a drastic decrease in recurrent injury to my knees. All of which has definitely had a beneficial impact on my dancing.”
–Quote from ballet student undergoing rehabilitation with Jennifer Paynter
