Foot Pain? Yoga To The Rescue!

Plantar Fasciitis, foot pain, fallen arches, flat feet and Bunions oh my! These are just a few foot problems that affect so many people. I’ve got some pretty strong opinions on why this is and what we can do about it.

We can blame most of our foot issues on shoes! Now you might be thinking ‘oh no not me I wear good supportive shoes’ and that is exactly the problem.

When we got to the Yoga section I remember thinking, “It’s basically just over-rated stretching.”
And of course, stretching is good but really, what is all this fuss about?
We also had an in-depth class on breathing. While it was interesting, I wondered how this was going to help anyone?

The problem was that I couldn’t see the benefits from only 15 minutes of Yoga. I was still in good shape from the Kickboxing I had done for the past 2 years. I thought had learned all about it. I thought I understood Yoga, but couldn’t see it actually working.
