Thank you everyone! You can sit anywhere and change hands too - some positions are easier than others; I like 90% or more at the hip. And Jon has an excellent point - one may not feel anything right away which is fine; I think of the line about as long as a Popsicle stick under my sole.
I found some hairbands (made by scunci) that are heavy-duty 1/2" elastic with a rubber non-stick ridge inside....make a knot in the middle and it makes a decent toe corrector substitute. thank you again, rachel!
Thank you so much for this Rachel. I had a bunion op on both feet 14/15 years ago and would urge anyone considering surgery to do these exercises first. My posture and gait changed profoundly afterwards and led to considerable back pain-the Pilates method has literally saved me! Are these exercises suitable for people post-op? Thank you
This was so interesting for me to explore my toes! My left foot second toe is apparently a bit misaligned, and it was by far the most difficult to press down. Re-aligning the toe before pressing down made the exercise much easier. I guess I need to work on that 2nd toe alignment! How funny!
