Day 2 of the Yamuna Foot Fitness Training in Melbourne, Australia:
The group is great. They are quickly getting the hang of how to assess a person’s foot alignment and walking pattern. They are learning how to do hands-on adjustments to help a person to feel the necessary shifts needed to improve their alignment and function. They have been doing hours of work in their own feet with all the Yamuna Foot Fitness routines.
By the end of today they were all in overload and could not do any more in their feet. So, we decided to work on connecting the skeletal and muscular connections from the hands through to the shoulder joints also using the Yamuna Foot Wakers. Connecting hands to shoulders is very similar to connecting feet to hips!
Words of Yamuna
When you are doing your yoga practice watch the power of the inhalation, the breath retention and the exhalation with every part of an asana. Each part of the breath offers deepening into yourself and all your parts. Watch the power of your breath for letting go of old patterns. It helps you to soften the deepest holding patterns.
