Foot stabilization can lead to better knee and hip control.

Foot stabilization also leads to better proprioception since it is easier to "feel " your feet and ankles when they are stable.

These foot exercises are designed to help improve foot muscle control and proprioception and are a prepatory exercise for learning better knee and hip muscle control.

Foot stabilization can lead to better knee and hip control. These foot exercises are designed to help improve foot muscle control and proprioception and are a prepatory exercise for learning better knee and hip muscle control.

This is part 2 of a series of 5 yoga workshop videos designed to help you improve muscle control and proprioception.

In this workshop, you'll do foot exercises for "foot and ankle stability". The feet (and hands) are parts that are often neglected in yoga classes. Here you'll not only focus on activating your feet, you'll also focus on feeling them. As a result you'll learn to feel not only your feet but your ankles also.

This isn't just about stabilizing your feet and ankles while standing. You'll also practice stabilizing them in seated poses where your feet aren't bearing the weight of your body.

Stabilizing or rigidizing the foot and ankle stability is one way of anchoring the lower leg. With the lower leg anchored, the muscles that attach from the shin to the thigh and pelvis have a fixed endpoint so that they can effectively act on the thigh or pelvis, either stabilizing these bones or controlling them.

Foot stabilization can lead to better knee and hip control. These foot exercises are designed to help improve foot muscle control and proprioception and are a prepatory exercise for learning better knee and hip muscle control.

This technique can be very helpful in combination with other techniques that are covered in the workshops that follow. It may make frictioned resistance, focused floor pressing and even muscle activation (thigh muscle activation) more effective.

Learn Your body

MCP stands for Muscle Control and Proprioception. All of these workshop videos are based on the idea that muscle control and proprioception go hand in hand. Muscle activation is what gives you proprioception. At the same time, improving your ability to proprioceive your own body helps to improve your muscle control.

For all of these workshops, the main focus is on exercises to help you internalize the respective techniques. So rather than having to remember (or try to remember) different muscle control techniques, you are given exercises in the form of a routine to help you create muscle memories for each technique.
