Having healthy feet is often taken for granted until something begins to go awry. In this session, Lori brilliantly explains how a simple tool used a few minutes a week can quickly reverse what might otherwise seem an unstoppable process. When they first met, Lori’s client Diane had toes that were beginning to curl under and showed the early signs of becoming Hammertoe. Using the Pilates Toe Tensometer (also known as the Toe Corrector), Lori here shows how to work the Transverse arch (the ball of the foot) in order to bring strength combined with flexibility back to the fine muscles of the feet. Diane always begins her lessons with this specific, yet brief work to help open and connect her feet and she immediately notices the changes. As her feet have become stronger and more flexible, they have also begun to relax and she notices that they don’t cramp in exercises that used to create terrible spasms. In other exercises, Diane now notices that she has a feeling of more reach through her legs and newfound strength. So can you! Filmed at Atlas Pilates, Lower Queen Anne neighborhood in Seattle WA.
