- It is not certain to this writer how Dr. Feldenkrais intended for the relationship of the feet to be. One Yoga pose (see image, at right) seems to be similar to all aspects. It is sometimes called Toe Stand, Balancing Butterfly, or Padangustasana.
I have highlighted the relationship between the knees, hips, heels and toes in this picture.

- Holly Bonasera commented, “This lesson affected my standing and walking, even though I could not approximate most of the steps. First my attention was drawn to the balls of my hip joints, which were pleasantly warm and solid. My heels felt so clearly and directly underneath them. Walking was easy and smooth. My head was effortlessly balanced on my spine and my neck free to move. Hopefully this unpacks what I meant when I said this lesson clarified the relationship between my pelvis and heels.”
