Making Our Way Back to the Feet

with Lesley Dike, physiotherapist & yoga teacher

A CPD training day for yoga teachers and student teachers.

at Whittle-le-Woods Village Hall, PR6 7LN


According to our very own Pete Blackaby, death starts at the feet!  If we lose our connection to the ground, the body will start to lose its way. It will make compensations that will end up being unhelpful. Pain and dysfunction become the norm. In this workshop, we will look at how this happens and look at constructive, immediate ways to make our way back to our feet.

We will briefly look at some anatomy of the foot region, understand the importance of sensation in the leg and explore which muscles help control our balance.  The key issue of foot-to-brain connections will be covered, plus the crucial role of pelvic muscles in our balance.

Les qualified as a yoga teacher with BWY in 1981 and has been teaching yoga ever since. She is also a physiotherapist and has been treating musculoskeletal problems for over 25 years.  She runs her own physiotherapy clinic called ‘Physio for Yoga’ and treats a wide range of musculoskeletal problems.  For the last fifteen years, she has been making yoga anatomy come alive, to a wide audience across the UK. She also teaches on the London Yoga Teacher Training Course. Her main ambition is that her infectious love of anatomy will be contagious to all who attend her training days!

“Thank you for presenting a wonderful workshop from which I have learnt a huge amount. If I had been told that we would be talking about feet for 3 hours I would not have believed that it could be fun, interesting and entertaining but your passion and energy and knowledge made the time fly.”
