(Video 1) Introduction to Thai Yoga and Breathing Wave - Thai Yoga

Thai Yoga – Feet Exercise 

In order to be grounded, it is best to start with exercise on our feet.

To practice this exercise, Giovanni will instruct how the breathing wave can create pressure on the plantar foot. Using a golf or tennis ball, he demonstrates how to open the plantar fascia which will release the tension along the whole leg. As the fascia connection from the plantar, runs along the back of the leg, the pressure applied to the plantar fascia, will release tension from the hamstring as well.
