"When bones in the feet and ankle are restricted, the relationship between

ground and space is challenged...... Shoes that attempt to create

an ideal shape or action, when worn continuously, impose upon both muscle and bone,

causing imbalances throughout our body"

 

[Liz Koch in Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise and Dance]

 

CLASSES

MAY - JULY 2017

Stiletto Detox IMPROVERS

 

6.30-8 PM

The Artist's Room @ The Conway Hall

What is it?

The Stiletto Detox classes aim to soften and expand the articulations and tissues in the foot with emphasis on the ball of the foot, the toes and the ankle. They will connect your feet to your whole being- and viceversa- through anatomical and poetic explorations performed whilst sitting on a chair or standing. Any tools such as balls, wedges, etc will be provided.

 

About the class

No need to get changed! Just take off your coat and shoes and you are ready to go! You can exercise barefoot or in socks/tights.

 

Who are the classes for?

These classes are for anybody who wish to neutralize the effects of wearing high heels as well as the effects of standing/sitting for many hours a day.

 

PLEASE NOTE: you are welcome to attend even if you do not wear high heels : the classes are open to anyone!

Sports people (especially runners), dancers and people with feet problems find that this work deliciously reinvigorate their feet, support their exercise routine and give them a greater sense of stability.

 

 

 

"Everyone should look after their feet,

especially tango dancers who wear high heels.

Stiletto Detox is a great way to give your feet a bit of TLC

in a friendly and fun atmosphere - recommended!"

Read Amy's review on the Stiletto Detox INTRODUCTION class she attended in April:

 

"Tucked away in a peaceful studio behind the dancefloor in Conway Hall is a class transforming the feet of all who enter it. Stiletto Detox, the brainchild of Adriana Pegorer, uses beautifully simple methods to alleviate pain, retrain muscles and unlock a freer feeling to movement in general and dance in particular.

 

A well known tanguera in the UK and abroad, Adriana has been studying dance and movement practices for 20 years, qualifying in Pilates amongst others, and blending successful methods into her teaching of both Argentine tango and contact tango. She uses her specialism in feet to help dancers, runners and athletes, office workers and the elderly.

 

As a devotee of foot rolling, I was curious to see what more I could learn about foot health for tango. I went along to Stiletto Detox on a Friday evening to find out what it’s all about....."
