Burn Knees and Flat Feet

Did you know that hundreds of people in the world that get knee surgery every single day?

Just in the last year, 4 of my close friends had surgery! One was a Taichi teacher, another was a runner, and the last two hardly did anything physical at all.

So what's up with our screwed up knees?

As we wear shoes all day long that support our arches, pad our feet from the earth, and do an amazing job of creating MASSIVE muscular imbalances that make our knees prone to injury.

Let me make it really simple for you:

      High Arches = Strong Knees
      Flat Feet = Knee Problems

"But what if my feet are naturally flat?" you may ask. 

Well, then you have got to strengthen your arches to protect your knees, and here are some exercises to get you started:

  • Arch Strengthening Exercise: Put a towel on the floor, and using your toes, grab the towel, lift it off the ground, and then drop it. Do this again and again until you feel your foot and calf muscles starting to fatigue.


 

  • Malasana: With your feet together, bend your knees and lower your hips into a squat . Extend your arms parallel to the floor. This is a modified Yoga asana -- Malasana. Hold this pose for 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, rest, and then do it 4 more times...

... or you could skip all of the above and move to a beach where you can go barefoot to walk all year round :) 



Keep practicing Yoga!
