Pilates and Pregnancy: Safe AbExercises

Yoga and Pilates: Whats theDifference?

Rat Snake Breeder onContinuing Ed: The Franklin Method

Pilates has developed a reputation for building core strength, especially once the fitness and physical therapy worlds came to Pilates in the 1990s. But my history with early Pilates, studying in New York in the late 80s, was always about the feet. Along the way, the core became the mantra of Pilates. I strongly feel the time has come to a focus on the feet again.

In Pilates, the feet are very important to the way we engage the body, and they deserve more attention. Feet bring to mind metaphors for moving us forward in life and finding our sense of place and existence in the world. Yet in our bodies, we pay little attention to them. We squish them into shoes, stand for long periods of time, walk on cement sidewalks. I live in the country, and we still do not pay attention to our feet here. If we did, we may lessen back issues, hip and knee pain, and release our necks.

Our feet are not only our sensory input telling us where and how to step, but also they set up the balance of our pelvis and translate through the spine. How you use your feet has a direct influence on your core.

The way we stand on our feet, or how we move the feet, recruits different muscle lines up the leg into the pelvis. Body weight from our spine and pelvis is placed on the legs through the femur into the tibia. At the end of the tibia sits the talus.

Thetalusis one of my favorite bones of the foot because it reminds me of a turtle shell with the turtles head looking out. It is also the only bone in our body that has no muscle attachments! It moves according to the structures around it. Why is this important? The talus receives the body weight from the tibia, the main weight-bearing bone of the lower leg. The tibia is curved over the top of the talus shell with the fibula supporting the talus on one side. As the weight then transfers from the talus, it spreads through the foot. Depending on how we are moving or standing, the bones of the feet shift from the outside or inside. These shifts are dynamic and in turn shift the whole structure of our skeleton.

The talus has a neutral position that is important to maintaining a neutral pelvis. The relationship of the talus is with the tibia from above and the navicular bone from below. If you draw a line connecting the talus, the navicular, the three cuneiform bones and first three metatarsals into the toes, you will see themedial arch(inner foot). The other side consists of the calcaneus, cuboid, the 4th and 5th metatarsals and toes. This is thelateral arch, or the outer foot. The inner foot is where we are more stable, and the outer foot spreads the weight and helps us right ourselves into stability. The inner foot line is extremely valuable for working on balance in standing.

Many people unfortunatelypronateor collapse the medial arch and roll the arch in toward the floor or even onto the floor. When this happens, the navicular drops and the talus is pulled down out of its neutral position. The whole pull of the pronated foot influences the femur to roll in and pull on the pelvis anteriorly. Now, we have an anterior pelvis on this side. You can see how if you continue to look globally, the pull continues all the way up the body. By correcting the talus position you will see the body move back into a more neutral position globally. The neutral pelvis then provides the balanced position from which to engage the deep abdominals and strengthen the core.

The talus moves with its structures around it. The navicular bone is one of the bones that can pull it out of neutral. When you lift the inner arch, the navicular moves up and moves the talus laterally. When the inner arch drops, the navicular moves medially pulling the talus with it. Some people need more flexibility in this area and some more awareness of where it should sit. Naja Cori, an unrecognized elder whom I studied with in the 1980s, taught us a simple exercise to improve this area:

Stand with the feet in a parallel position, legs straight and body upright, do not look down at your feet, use a mirror to watch the navicular moving down toward the floor and away from the floor. Roll the feet toward the lateral arch (outer border of the foot) lifting the inner arch. The big toe ball, (the MP joint and tip of the big toe) will lift slightly off the floor. Roll the medial arch (inner border of the feet) in. The weight will be more on the MP joint and less on the little toe ball. Rhythmically move the arches out and in and finish on the lateral arch after about 8 repetitions. Then slowly move the navicular bone toward the midline but only until the Achilles tendon is straight, do not go past this point. Try to maintain this position of the foot. [See the slideshow below.]

Pilates is brilliant at working the feet on the Reformer or the Parakeet Bar, but only when you place them on the bar or in the straps with intention of a neutral talus.Prehensileis the best foot placement to work on this idea of the feet and the contrast of the hips and spine. When the metatarsal heads are placed on the bar with the toes long and wrapped around the bar, it places the forefoot (the metatarsals and phalanges) into a supportive transverse arch. (See photo at right.) Most people have to roll their legs inward in order to meet the bar evenly. But the thigh bones should be in a neutral alignment with the hip joint. What I mean by the contrasting work of the hips and spine is the inward spiral of the feet with an outward rotation of the hip. It creates a strength pattern from the feet to the pelvis.

Some people have compensated forefeet, their metatarsals dont meet the ground in an even transverse arch. The metatarsals and toes bow or tilt toward or away from the mid line. The big toe may be higher than the little toe or the opposite, the little toe higher than the big toe when the talus is in neutral. This is due to years of walking around with the talus not in neutral. If the client has this compensation, teaching them foot corrective exercises can improve the function of the foot and in turn change their pelvic position.

All the movements below are performed with the talus in neutral. First find the neutral position with the Arches In, Arches Out exercise. Then perform the following:

The purpose of this exercise is to feel the dome of the plantar arch, tri-bone contact points and the lower extremity musculature.

Stand or sit in with a neutral spine and lift toes off ground. Weight should be evenly distributed between big toe ball, little toe ball and the center of the back of the heel. Maintain this position of contact, and while standing, try to bring the femur into a neutral position without loosing big toe ball contact. You will feel the hip rotators activating. Hold 5 seconds. Lower toes to floor and keep same weight distribution. The tibia should be vertical to the best of your ability.

Dome the plantar arch, which consists of the medial, transverse and lateral arch. (The three points that form the plantar arch are the center of the heel, the first toe ball and the little toe ball.) Puff up the arch like a parachute by inching the heel point toward the toe ball points. Move the toe ball points away from the heel to relax the arch. Repeat the motion of doming the arch and inching the foot forward. Try doming and inching in the reverse direction, bringing the toe balls toward the heel until the tibia returns to the vertical starting position. To increase intensity, wet one end of towel and place it on the floor. Place the foot on the dry end of the towel and inch the arch while dragging the towel. The towel creates a resistance.

1. Lift all the toes up, pressing the metatarsal heads into the floor, and try to separate the toes creating space between the toes; lower the toes. Repeat and visualize the action for spreading the toes, and feeling the big toe ball and little toe ball press into the floor.

2. Lift all the toes again, this time lower one toe at a time starting from the little toe. Try the other direction. Imagine playing the piano with your toes.

3. Press the big toe down, hold it down and lift the four other toes. Repeat several times. Reverse the actionpress the four toes down and lift the big toe up. You can do both feet at the same time. Or, really challenge your coordination by doing one action with one foot and the opposite action with the other foot!

Recently, a local teacher, who attended mySole to Spineseminar in California, used this concept of neutral talus in her Reformer class by cueing her students to stand with the heel contact on the bar centered throughout the exercises, being aware of when they rolled off center or lost heel contact. After one class, a student told her in the next class that 90 percent of her knee pain was gone. As she found, paying closer attention to feet while doing Pilates can help eliminate knee pain; it can also help with lower-back tension, even SI pain and more.

Understanding the power of the feet, along with both their static and dynamic structure, gives you the tools to enable your clients to feel the connection up the leg into the pelvis and spine. Bringing awareness and change to a clients alignment increases positive results, whether it is less pain or simply feeling the work more. That all adds up to getting stronger and feeling better.

Madeline,As always, a great article, especially the point about the knee pain vanishing after focusing on the feet. The little piggys definitely are not glamorized like the core, but just as important in the whole structure.

Madeline, you have such a wonderful grasp on the anatomy of Pilates! Have you written about wrists and Pilates? Id love to able to point some of my clients toward a good write up on using this joint efficiently.

A great suggestion about writing about the wrist and hand. I do have some specific tips and reformer work for wrist. Ill work on it! Thank you.

Madeline, Thank you for your thoughtful article. I have been exploring, rather obsessively, the feet core connection over the last year with great success. Your article confirmed many things I have found & gave me wonderful food for thought for my continued exploration. The Arches In, Arches Out was very helpful with a few of my clients this past week.Thanks for sharing.

Joes FootCorrector: Recommended? I have difficulty maintaining a neutral talus with heel or metatarsal on the reformer bar. Right arch Dx as fallen. Intend to work the feet as u Rx. Thnx.Also thnx 2 /pilates_about

Robert: Without seeing you in person, it is not the best way to make a recommendation. I feel more comfortable about making a recommendation by seeing your whole structure in relation to your feet, especially your right foot. Try the exercises daily and check your pelvis balance. In my Sole to Spine two day workshop, we prop the feet on the reformer in a way that allows the talus to stay in neutral. Perhaps a teacher, who took the course, is in your area, and you could have a session with them. I am also teaching this course in Arizona, and Florida (check my schedule on If you want a referral, I would be happy to provide that. Maybe, a trip to Sonoma is on your horizon!

Your article is very interesting and points out the great importance of considering the whole body in Pilates. Many back, hip and knee issues stem from issues in the feet. I start each session with my clients and teacher trainees with attention to the feet.

I am surprised, however, that the article does not mention two of Joes great equipment inventions for the feet: the toe exerciser and the foot corrector. In addition to work on the Reformer, there are also many great exercises on the Wunda Chair, Electric Chair and Cadillac that help strengthen and realign the muscles of the feet and calves.

It is great to see another person focusing on the importance of correcting foot alignment and function first when working with the whole body! As an educator and the creator of YamunaBodyRolling and YamunaFootfitness I find that in order to improve foot function and overcome common foot problems a person needs to understand what she is actually doing with her feet to cause the problem and then what she need to do to correct the problem. I find if you just give a person an exercise without changing the brain and awareness it is not easy to create lasting and positive change. With Yamuna Footfitness we have people start with a walking test that can always be their personal measure for improvement. They can always see their successes and what work they still have left to do.

Thanks for sharing this great post for education and awareness about foot strength and the benefits of proper alignment. Ive been a foot fitness fan for many years and have seen how much of a difference paying attention to stretching and strengthening the feet can improve posture and whole-body health for myself and my Pilates clients.

If folks are looking for resources for easy-to-learn foot care exercises, they can check out the book Fantastic Feet! Exercises to Strengthen the Ankles, Arches, and Toes and other helpful foot-care tips at

Hi Madeline,I teach from the foot up for many of my clients and it makes a huge difference in their bodies! Ive been using the Naja Cori excercise you describe before I put client on the foot corrector. What a simple and inspired bit of movement and knowledge building. Can you say a bit more about Naja Cori?Sharon Dow
