Bring me Your Poor Tired Soles - From the Diary of A Pilates Foundation teacher, By Rosie Minogue

Blogs

Our feet are unsung miracles of bones and tissue. Each foot has twenty-six bones and over one hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments. Every day, they support (be honest with yourself) any excess weight. They propel us from place to place over
many decades. They run for buses, stand doing the washing up, go on tiptoes to reach things. They are remarkable feats of engineering. If you doubt, ye of little faith, just look at robots. Even with all our technological advances, we struggle to make a
robot with articulating feet. Feet are amazing.

He became enamored by the classical Greek ideal of a man balanced in body, mind, and spirit, and he began to develop his own exercise system based on this concept.

Bilateral Congruency by Marguerite Galizia

Asymmetry is something that comes up a lot in my work. My own scoliosis gives me an inherent asymmetry that makes it impossible for me to skip straight to the hundred in my own practice. But my observations of other bodies is that, whilst there may not be a scoliosis, asymmetry is very common.
