What is Foot Yoga? This method embraces the ancient philosophy which honors the the intelligence of the feet (and toes) and offers this wisdom as a modern day application on our yoga mats.
Our feet serve as our connection to the Earth and play a vital role in our ability to feel grounded, as the yoga sutras describe as “sthira.” This foundation supports us in our ability to ascend and embrace the sweet, light and joy with ease or as the sutras refer to as “sukham.”
In the true spirit of yoga, the Foot Yoga Method embraces the sentiment of allowing our yoga practice to transcend the mat and the studio- deepen your practice the most by applying these principles (and self care techniques) in your external environment, learn how by training with Beri.
