Sit with your knees at an angle of 90 degrees to the floor. Then lift your toes from the floor while holding the heel on the floor. Then put them back on the floor. Repeat the exercise with one foot and then the other, and then try to work with both feet at the same time, to finally complete the exercise by swinging the heel to the toes.
