Did you know?
The average person walks 115,000 miles in a lifetime — ore than four times the circumference of the globe. Proper foot care is crucial to maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.
Only a small percentage of the population is born with foot problems. A lifetime of neglect accounts for the fact that 75% of Americans will have some foot problem of varying degrees at some time in their life.
Anatomy of the 3 arches of your foot
The medial (inside arch) the lateral (outside arch) Transverse (across the top) arch...so why is this important? the 3 arches work together to support the legs and create a spring as you walk. When this spring mechanism isn't working your knee and hip muscles have to compensate and work hard to propel you forward and keep you standing.
Do this for your aches
What's VASIE Pilates?
“Van Alstine’s Structural Integration Exercise” Paul Van Alstine, advanced Rolfer® and Pilates instructor at Studio One Pilates, is the founder of VASIE.
VASIE is based on the exercise system devised by Joseph Pilates and the movement and postural concepts of “Structural Integration” developed by Ida P. Rolf. Had J. Pilates and I. Rolf collaborated to find the Unifying Theory of Exercise™ this holistic exercise program may have been developed long ago. Both were pioneers of powerful systems designed to change the body at a core level. Combining these systems VASIE is designed to make changes to the bone structure, re-ignite the link between breath and movement, and tone the fascia, as well as the muscular system. Unlike other workouts, VASIE builds physical, energetic, and emotional balance in the body.
