Pilates: Foot Exercises with Thera Band – Women’s Fitness

Pilates: Foot Exercises with Thera Band – part of the women’s fitness video series by GeoBeats. Hi, I am Charlotte and this is Alice, and we are here at Streamline Pilates Studio in Brooklyn Heights, New York. We are going to show you a series that you can do with the Thera Band to help keep your foot flexible and mobile and as healthy as it can be. So, taking the Thera Band, you are just going to put the Thera Band, spread it out over the ball of your foot and make sure that the top edge is higher above your toes. And then drawing them back in, flex your foot – your heel may lift up off of the mat and that is fine, but then you are going to press into a point reaching with the ball of your foot. And then, spreading the toes forward and really get those toes to point forward, and then draw back and then reach the ball of your foot back. You want to sort of think of this as four steps: 1) the ball of your foot coming forward, 2) the toes coming forward 3) the toes arching back, and 4) the ball of your foot coming back. So, you get that full point and full flex through your foot, and you want to repeat this five or ten times – flexing and then pointing. Great. Then coming back into your flex, let’s do a full circle. Again, you are pointing and flexing, getting as much mobility through your ankle, as much point and flex through your toes. Good, and you can do this five or ten times in each direction – make sure you reverse. Good. Then coming back to your neutral position
