Join Saraswathi and Dr Rob as they work with real students experiencing foot and ankle issues. Together they will share first-hand the different but complementary approaches they take when working with this region of the body.

The Workshop in Detail

Starting with how to take a focused history of foot and ankle: what questions should you ask, and what information can we gain from the answers given?

We will then discuss what to look for when observing the foot and how to identify changes to its architecture. Finally, we will explain ways you can challenge the foot’s function to assess how well it works during movement. This will include how to observe the foot and ankle in various postures. 

Finally, we discuss specific ways to help improve the foot and ankle with movement and yoga therapy based on what we learned from these 3 steps.
