Chinese medicine informs us that we absorb the yin chi from the earth through the soles of our feet. In the middle of the ball of the foot, the kidney meridian starts and is nourished with each step we take. Another good reason to walk!
We spend many hours a day in shoes that are uncomfortable and usually too narrow. Over time the toes slowly stiffen and our balance becomes affected. Pain in the feet can also be caused by tight calves.
In this sequence we unwind the tension in the feet and legs making them supple and alive. The results can be felt throughout the body.
