Lecture given by Manouso Manos at the Asian Art Museum in San Fransisco. The lecture was prompted by the show “Yoga: The Art of Transformation”. Manouso talks about yoga, and his teacher BKS Iyengar.

A thought for our feet.

“Leonardo di Vinci considered the human foot, with its fantastic weight suspension system comprising one quarter of all the bones in the human body, “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.”…. Dr. Hartmann (leading PT from Ireland who serves at the great and powerful Oz for the world’s finest distance runners) says “Just look at it’s architecture. Blueprint your feet and you’ll find a marvel that engineers have been trying to match for centuries. Your foot’s centerpiece is the arch, the greatest weight-bearing design ever created. The beauty of any arch is the way it gets stronger under stress; the harder you push down, the tighter its parts mesh. No stone mason worth his trowel would ever stick a support under and arch; push up from underneath, and you weaken the whole structure. Buttressing the foot’s arch from all sides is a high-tensile web of twenty-six bones, thirty three joints, twelve rubbery tendons and eighteen muscles, all stretching and flexing like an earthquake resistant suspension bridge”.
Taken from Born to Run by Christopher McDougall.
