Build A Strong Foundation w/ the Foot Corrector

Watch the preview





Your feet are your foundation, and the foot corrector helps to build a strong, steady base for your body to move from. If you have weak feet that cause you pain or malfunction, this class is for you! Pilates can create a strong bandage around any weak joint, by building the muscles that support the joints and connect them to the strength of your center. Not only will this session give you stronger, happier feet, it will immediately improve your posture as it sculpts your glutes, hips and legs since they are where any imbalance in the feet begins. Finally, Kathi shares how the Foot Corrector can be a mood-altering device that stimulates the entire body through the sensitive surface of the feet. Make friends with your Foot Corrector, it’s a small tool that packs a lot of punch! Filmed at American Body Tech, Kathryn Ross-Nash’s Allendale, NJ studio. Thanks to our model, Instructor Lauren Montefusco of Pilates Perfection and Massage in Greenwich, CT.

    Hi Kathi, I just got a foot corrector, I’ve used one before, but never been taught so explicitly the different positions and what each one is for. Thanks!!

    Dear Kathy
    I love your clear way of explaining an exercise which includes the set up, execution, rythm and goal of the exercise as well as the variations. It is always a pleasure to see you on pilatesology and connect the dots to the pilates system. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. We really can use it here in Switzerland.

    Lol yes- I can relate to having to be an octopus!!!
    Personally I would use a lot of manual support so the rest of the tendons and ligaments could develop in the correct alignment.
    I hope this helps!

    So helpful to have a visual reference in conjunction with your book and (often cryptic) conference notes – my hyrogliphics make much more sense! Thank you!
    If you have someone with no Achilles and collapsed arches, how much emphasis do you place on manually manipulating ankle/foot/knee alignment vs the hip/butt/ powerhouse? Sometimes I feel I need to be an octopus to ensure my client is getting the benefit without overwhelming him with instructions… Any tips advice would be enormously appreciated.

      I love the foot corrector! I had a car accident 4 years ago and rehabbed my broken hip with it. Loved some variations I have not seen before! Thank you so much Kathi for sharing with us!
