Toe Seesaw

Equipment Needed

  • Open Floor
  • Chair (optional)


  1. Either sitting or standing, align your lower leg so your shin is vertical and your knee is directly above your ankle.
  2. Begin by pulling your big toe up in the air while the rest of your toes stay flat on the ground
  3. Lower your big toe back to the floor
  4. Pull your other toes up in the air while leaving your big toe flat
  5. Repeat as prescribed and go slow

Common Error

  • Don’t give up. This is a VERY tricky movement for many people. It is common for coordination to be jerky or uncomfortable but the only way to improve is to practice.
  • Try not to grip the floor or curl the toes that remain on the floor. Focus on relaxing the toes that you aren’t trying to move.
