How to do yoga for flexible, flexible feet
Posted On August 4, 2021
I got a yoga mat at my local fitness store, but it was the first time I had ever experienced yoga, which means I was a little unsure of how it would work.
I went in thinking it would be a warm up, and I was so excited, I fell asleep on the mat.
After a couple of hours of yoga, I felt like my legs were getting a lot stronger, but I wasn’t sure what was happening.
I was sweating profusely and the mats were getting slippery.
This is when I realised that I had my yoga mat on.
It wasn’t until I was back at my hotel room in the morning that I realised the damage it had done to my joints.
When I got up to clean up, I noticed my yoga mats were soaked through, with some dried blood around them.
The mats weren’t waterproof and I could feel my feet slipping on the wet mat.
I was really worried about how my feet would look, so I decided to go back home.
A few days later, I was ready to get back to the mat and start my routine.
I’ve never had an injury to my feet before, but after going on this journey, I’ve learnt a lot about stretching, strengthening, and adjusting the yoga routine for my body.
I also noticed that it’s really helpful to use a mat with a removable lid.
I didn’t know it was possible to do this, so when I saw it on the market I was thrilled.
First, I tried it on for size.
The yoga mat was a bit bulky and the instructions were difficult to follow, so that was an initial hurdle.
After taking some measurements, I found that the mat is really comfortable for me to wear.
Then, I started working out on the mats, and the results were pretty amazing.
For example, I had some discomfort at first, but once I started practising I noticed that my knees started to relax.
While I was in yoga class, I realised how important it was to have a good posture to prevent me from having a bad day.
Finally, when I went to bed, I didn’t feel sore.
Since then, I feel very healthy and I am happy to have learned more about yoga.
