Sitting Seza is a perennial favorite among Yoga Tune Up® practitioners to stretch the plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot. It also works to help keep toes separated and pointing forwards to assist in avoiding bunions. Here’s the clip (and more toe exercises like it are available on the Quick Fix for Feet and Ankles video).

Love it. Such an accessible exercise that anyone can work toward, no matter how immobile or tight the feet and ankles are. I’m imagining my mother lifting her knees or using her hands on support to decrease the load, and if body permits, doing it just as Jill demonstrates but by holding for a shorter amount of time. And all you need is a strap or necktie or bathrobe tie!


This video is very helpful. It is SO important that we care for our feet. I work with a lot of aging students and this is so simple and will help keep their toes and feet healthy.
