This is one of Nia’s 52 Moves. The Releve. First you touch your heel to the ground.
Then you weight on one foot.
Usually this is done in a quick step like motion. During a workout routine we usually step to a releve then move on. Sometime though we do stay on the balls of our feet in releve and walk. It all depends on the workout and routine and if that will even work for you and your body. It is great for the ankles and the lower leg. It also strengthens your foot.
You can see a list of Nia’s 52 Moves on my site or in the Nia Technique book.
