NIA Focus: Feet and Heel Lead

By Andrea Hersh, NIA instructor

Between the ages of 5 and 21 I took ballet and modern dance classes. When I walked, my feet were in habitual turn out. This was My Body’s Way of walking.I was proud of my ballet feet but eventually this caused me to have problems with my back.

It wasn’t until I started taking Nia in 2009, that I was shown that the body’s natural way of walking was in parallel.The healthy skeleton is built with the feet parallel directly under the pelvis.The Body’s Way of walking is the heel leads and then the whole foot comes down.If the foot is in turn out, the heel lead comes down on the side of the heel, throwing the pelvis, hips and spine out of alignment.This could cause eventual knee, hip and back problems.

I still catch myself walking with a slight turn out but quickly adjust my walk.When I walk now, my mantra is “heel lead, whole foot, heel lead whole foot, heel lead whole foot….”
