If you haven’t heard of Yoga Paws, you have been missing out.
They’re just what their name implies, little gloves and footies that have padding and can be used anywhere. Literally, anywhere.
The company is pretty awesome, rather than me mess up their whole story I’ll let you see what they say about it:
“Yoga Paws LLC is a mother/daughter adventure which started in 2001 and officially in launched in 2003. Gail (mother) and Jamie (daughter) Getzwiller share a love for travel and yoga which lead to a natural development of the YogaPaws. Over the past 11 years they have embarked on a journey of love and working dedication to produce the best “Paws” possible. Yoga Paws have been a product and company that cares about spreading the love and allowing all the yogi’s around the world to enjoy as non-slip practice Anytime Anywhere. 🙂

“When you get to the end of all that light you know and it’s time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: whether you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.” – Edward Teller
Make this year the year you learn to fly. Believe in yourself, for you are the gift you give the world.”
It is such a beautiful product and I love the way they feel. I tested the “Elite” set, as described below:
The inspiring and unique way to stabilize your foundation when doing yoga postures and Pilates exercises. A revolutionary design provides solid support, extra padding, and non-slip peace of mind. Fitting in your purse, pocket, or travel bag. Going somewhere? No need to lug that mat around with you anymore cause Yoga-Paws are ideal for TRAVEL! “
I put these on and pushed right into a handstand. The extra cushion on my hands gave me the confidence to really push into them to get up without fearing my little joints. I have Lupus and fight daily with the joint pain that makes every action feel like it’s shattering my bones. Fortunately enough for me, there are wonderful people in the world who create these amazing products to help me with my pain. I’ve collected tons of cushions, mats, rollers, bands, straps, blocks and anything you can think of (except a meditation pillow, I really need to get on top of that) and YogaPaws are incredibly unique, I have never come across a product like this.
I like to explore, hike, travel and find unique places in nature. When you come across a special place, or at least when I come across a special place I get inspired to do yoga. Up until now I only do basic poses in nature, this way I don’t harm my joints. Having YogaPaws has given me the freedom to do so many more poses, with the freedom of whatever strikes me.
It isn’t just handstands, the gloves help me in all arm balances and in any position where my hands may touch the ground. Having a little cushion at my fingertips is one of the most amazing things for my practice. Now let’s talk about the footies (that’s what I call them) are perfect! Downdog on a rock? No problem. Need a little stability on a sandy (or rocky) beach? Here you go. These are safer than any shoes you’d probably be wearing at the time and provide grip, cushion and a little structure.
I’m absolutely in love with my YogaPaws! Even though YogaPaws sent me a set to sample, I’m already getting one for my sister as well. I don’t review products I don’t believe in so you can always trust that I will give my honest opinion and experience with a product.
