Hey there, Jackie here of Jackie's Yoga Seattle. Today at Liz Doyle's Seattle Yoga Shala talking about exercises to do after ankle surgery. So after ankle surgery, a great place to start is with some foot awareness. So I'm just going to show you a few poses that you can do to really start to draw up the arch of your foot and start to press evenly throughout your feet to start to really support the muscles around your ankle after having some ankle surgery. So just starting here in a really strong mountain pose. So taking the feet either hip width distance or together, your choice. From there start to pick up all of your toes and as you set them down try to mindfully press one toe down at a time. From there, bend the knee slightly to feel that pressing down of the feet and as you straighten the legs, start to actually press down and out. So now you're starting to strengthen that muscle around the ankle. You're also starting to get a little bit longer and taller. Palms face open, just a strong tada finacina pose. From here when you're ready you're going to exhale the squat down and inhale scoop up to come to a chair pose. So now you're pressing now to a bit of a different area on the foot. Still trying to press down and out and firmly throughout the whole foot. From there inhale all the way back up, exhale the hands to the heart and from here we're going to move to a standing balance, a tree pose. So from there, start to inhale your right knee in to your chest and exhale to place it either to the inner thigh, to the calf or maybe even the toes to the ground and your heel to your ankle. So see whatever works for you. You're always welcome to adjust the leg with your hands as well. So from there just again trying to feel that drawing up with the arch of the foot press evenly through all four corners of the foot. From there just try to stay for a few breaths nice and calmly and slowly come out. So those were some strengthening exercises for after ankle surgery. I hope you found those were helpful. Jackie of Jackie's Yoga. Thanks.
