From some of my other posts you know I am a yoga fan. Yoga is awesome for stretching out those sore muscles you get from sitting too long at a computer…not that I…do that or anything. :) But I ran into a yoga problem at my new house. The room I like to do yoga in (floor to ceiling windows all along one wall) has a hard wood laminate floor and when you do yoga on a rug or a yoga mat…you slip and slide and almost break your neck…or smack your head into the brick fireplace…neither of which is very fun or calming. Even the so-called “sticky” mats don’t often work….I have a few different mats. Bare feet on the floor doesn’t work either…darn that oil slick in my family room. ;)
Then I found a truly ingenious AND as luck would have it, eco friendly solution. They are called Yoga Stick-e Socks! Now I don’t need a rug or yoga mat anymore…these socks make it feel as if you are going barefoot but you don’t slip and slide. They feel like regular socks but they have a hole for each toe to extend through so the toes remain exposed. The exposed toes enable gripping during exercise.
With their soft-as-silk Bamboo fiber they provide a hygienic, non-slip, sweat-absorbing environment for all your barefoot exercise including Yoga, dance, Pilates, and Karate and they made form a sustainable and earth friendly material. They would be perfect for yoga classes to. Even if you bring a mat as it is nice to have something covering your feet while not sacrificing your ability to “stick” your poses. They come in black and beige and they very affordable in price. Check them out and with the holidays coming just around the corner think about any Yogis in your life that might like these!
