Healthy Feet Yoga Workshop
For Teachers And Students
When you think about what we put our feet through every day, it’s no wonder they get tired and grumpy! Our feet are literally the foundation we depend on to support us as we go about our activities; hobbies, sports, work – all depend on healthy feet to take us where we need to be and then to bring us home.
This clinic takes an upclose and detailed anatomical look at our too often neglected feet. You’ll see the intricate and amazing structure of the foot, and understand why foot health is so important and what we can do to promote it.
