The Pros and Cons of Wearing High Heels


  • you feel more attractive and sexy
  • it increases your self-esteem
  • it strengthens your calf muscles



  • tight, contracted and shortened calf muscles
  • higher risk of leg injury


The best way to stretch your calf and leg muscles is by practicing these yoga asanas:

  • Downward facing dog: press your heels toward the mat
  • Seated forward fold (single leg or both together)
  • Supine, single leg stretch (of course, switch your legs)

    Mel, I wanted you to know how much I appreciate and enjoy your Online Friday chair yoga classes. It is so nice to see your smiling face and dedication teaching us. I hope that one day soon we will be able to return to the center to meet up again with all our friends.  Stay well and please keep your nice smile.  

    - Irmgard,

    Mel, thank you so much for offering Online Fitness Classes!  I love all your videos.  You provide a great variety of exercises and it can be modified to make it harder which is great.  I was telling everyone because I am used to your style of yoga, when I close my eyes and hear your voice, it’s like we are in the same room.  Much love, Jackie.
