Day 16: Ankle stretches

Cindy Mastry, owner and operator of Yoga Etc. Studio in St. Petersburg, FL, offers this quick exercise for strengthening your ankles. Your toe muscles can atrophy when in shoes all day long.  With this very simple exercise, you can bring some blood flow to your feet and ankles.
 
This exercise brings blood flow to your feet and creates more mobility in the feet and ankles. Taking care of your feet and ankles is important because you depend on them during your daily life.
  1. Sit up straight and stretch out your legs so your feet are off the ground.
  2. Keep your feet and your ankles together and make a complete circle with your ankles.
  3. Repeat for 10 rotations.
  4. Change direction and repeat again for 10 rotations.
