Pilates Exercises for Ankle Stability and Mobility

Ankles that are flexible and strong are key to preventing injuries, falls, and compensations up the kinetic chain. A list of ankle stability and mobility exercises has been added to the Pilates Encyclopedia.

Here’s a few to get you started:

  • M - Balance on a half roller: foot lengthwise on roller
  • M - Leg Pull Front with point/flex ankle movement
  • R - Side Splits: by keeping the outer edges of the feet pressed down, the lateral ankle stretches and the inner arches lift
  • T - Punching+Lunges: improves dorsiflexion
  • C - Footwork: Heel raises (closed chain ankle pumps with pedal down on stopper, not moving)
  • SC - Standing Calf Stretch
