Our feet take us through life. There are more than 7,000 nerve endings in each foot constantly send messages throughout your body and mind. They provide the essence of our posture, our wellbeing, and insight to how our organs are functioning. Your foot is a masterful network of approximately 35 joints and 28 bones, held together by 120 ligaments and activated by at least 20 muscles. Today you will take about 18,000 steps. By age 70, your feet will have logged 70,000 miles. A little care and attention goes a long way. That is why Pilates, Garuda, and PowerPlate footwork is vital to your health- mentally and physically. Next time you roll your foot under your footbar, take a little extra moment to revel in the joy of caring for your feet and thus your overall health.
