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:


  • Balance on a half roller: foot lengthwise on roller
  • Leg Pull Front with point/flex ankle movement


  • Side Splits: by keeping the outer edges of the feet pressed down, the lateral ankle stretches and the inner arches lift


Trapeze Table
  • Punching+Lunges: improves dorsiflexion


  • Footwork: Heel raises (closed chain ankle pumps with pedal down on stopper, not moving)


Spine Corrector
  • Standing Calf Stretch
