Fabulous Feet (1 mar) by Jillian Hessel
1 march (fri) 10.30 am – 1.00pm
The foot is the absolute vertical foundation of the body. In this workshop, Jillian will teach essential foot exercises using small props such as balls, pencils, towels and exercise bands. She will also introduce the Foot Corrector and Toe Exerciser, which Joseph Pilates designed specifically for the feet. Jillian will also demonstrate how precise placement of the feet on the Apparatus affects the outcome of the entire workout on the body.
Jillian says, “The feet are without a doubt the most ignored and maligned body part in a Western style workout program. We buy expensive gym shoes and special orthotic inserts for our shoes, but we do very little to actually strengthen the structural integrity of our feet, or to maintain our natural flexibility.”
