Family Yoga… Toes!

In the last several months, part of my absence was due to life changes. I married the man God put on this Earth for me, remember I mentioned a good thing starting last summer?  It was not only the start of a good thing but the beginning of a lifetime adventure! Needless to say, I was a little busy with wedding planning, and then I moved.  Not just across town or down the road, but 600 miles from home.

Anyway, enough about my life changes.

I would have to say one of my favorite things that my husband and I do together… drum roll please: is Yoga Toes!IMG_2579  It’s a little nerdy but we both love it!

I am sure that you may be asking what are Yoga Toes?  Let me tell you about these amazing things!

These goofy looking gel things are probably one of my favorite purchases ever!

Almost every night, or day– I kick my feet up, get my little piggies situated in my yoga toes and relax.

Let me be honest, I have some seriously wonky feet.  I even spent time in physical therapy in my teens because of them. They are wide and flat with a high instep.  Don’t they sound so cute?  Starting middle of this past summer, a pain developed in my left foot in the joint under my pinky toe.  I am not one to go running to the doctors for anything, but I did break down and get x-rays done to make sure I did not break anything.  Good news– no broken bones in my foot 🙂  Bad news– because of my seriously flat feet I was stressing the joint and therefor creating the pain 🙁 My doctor showed me how to tape my foot so I would be in less pain, and my foot would be supported to eliminate some pain.

Taping my foot helped, but let’s be real, it has to be re-taped every couple of days.  It gets old fast– REALLY FAST!

Yoga ToesSo after we settled into our house, I ordered in a set of Yoga Toes.  Unfortunately for me, I ordered in a pair that was 2 sizes too big, but they were perfect for my husband!  So, back to amazon for me.  This time I made sure I ordered the right size, not based on the color of the Yoga Toes.  I might lean more towards blue when I am buying things, which is how I ended up with Yoga Toes that fit my husband.  Purple isn’t necessarily my go to color, but that’s what I ended up with.

Often after dinner we camp out on a couch with our respective Yoga Toes and enjoy a little relaxation time.  Normally just 20 minutes of wearing the Toes and my feet feel amazing and the pain in my left foot is almost nonexistent.

You might be asking yourself, what do these Yoga Toes actually do, and are they worth it?  Simple answer to question 2:  YES!

Okay, now for question 1:  They help realign your toes and put them back to where God intended them.  You see, shoving our feet into those super cute shoes will have ramifications to our lovely feet that we did not see coming when the shoes called to us in the store.
Do your feet hurt you?

Do they ache?

In case you have yet to figure it out, the Yoga Toes I have are pretty much amazing!  They have provided my poor feet some great relief and actually get me to slow down and relax, which is a good thing according to my doctor 😉  Oh and even better, I get some quality time with the hubby!
