We all know yoga has many attributes, not the least of which is inducing tranquility and achieving a sense of balance and peace. What if this peace transcended through your body down to your feet – and up from your feet through your entire body? Yoga for your feet. This would be a very cool experience, right? So often we just focus spreading peace and energy in to our inner core, but peacefulness can also stretch into and from the most used parts of our body, our feet.
Simply put, our feet help to maintain our connection with the Earth, and they also allow us to be mobile and get to where we need to go. They are the stem to our roots – literally and figuratively. We may stand for hours at a time at work, push ourselves on power walks, spin while high speed cycling, or take an extra twirl dancing. All these activities and more can take a toll on our feet.
The everyday strains from working long hours can also take a toll and induce negative energies which seep into the rest of our body. The good news is it doesn’t take a lot of time or work to rectify this mistreatment. It’s as simple as taking a few minutes out of the day to ensure that our main connectors to the earth, our feet, are balanced and energized through yoga for your feet.
The way to do this is to have a more open, direct connection between our bodies and the ground we stand on. This enables us to have a direct connection to the earth’s powerful, natural energy sources and absorb its beneficial energy; kind of like yoga for your feet. Removing barriers such as modern insulating shoes is essential to achieving this optimal connection. Our feet are often forgotten and they are one of the most crucial parts of our body. They are also most worn and overused, dare we say “abused”. Most certainly, they are under appreciated. We are hearing about this more and more in the press these days; the harmful effect that pinched toes and high heels have on our bodies. It’s vital we bring back peace and energy to and through our feet.
Another problem is that many shoes actually inhibit the beneficial flow of the Earth’s natural electrical currents. According to Dr. Mercola, “Traditionally shoes were made of leather, which actually conducts electrons and therefore maintains a conductive contact between the Earth and your feet. However modern day rubber and plastics are electrical insulators and therefore block the beneficial flow of electrons from the Earth to your body.”
There is good news, however, and a way to experience the benefits of being at peace and being balance to our bodies without taking out your yoga mat. There is a new line of footwear and they are called pluggz. What is so unique and special about pluggz is that they are infused with a piece of carbon and rubber in the form of a soft plug that sits right under the most sensitive part of our feet – the ball of the foot or metatarsal area. This is a conductor and enables the flow of the Earth’s natural energy in to our bodies, so even when we can’t find time to ground ourselves in a yoga class or stroll barefoot on the grass, we can still take a piece of grounding with is while on our way to work, or commuting home; even while out for a social time. Because of their unique construction, pluggz can act as yoga for your feet.
Another matter of related impact is of that one of top reported causes of feet and leg (and body) soreness is due to inflammation. Studies show that grounding has been found to help alleviate this condition through our entire bodies. It is important to keep grounded, not only in peace of mind, but to find footing in soothing remedies for all parts of our bodies. Let pluggz introduce yoga for your feet through their unique sandals and flats.
