Teautally Cool: Feet First

I’m wrapping up an Ayurvedic and Alkaline cleanse (more on that later,) and one of the rituals I’ve enjoyed as part of the process has been Abhyanga which is a ritual of dry-brushing your body with a Dosha-appropriate oil (Do you know your dosha? I’m Pittaso I use coconut oil for Abhyanga. I love it because it reminds me of a tropical vacation!) The benefits of rubbing oil into your skin are many, especially during the Winter when your skin is drier than usual and your joints crave more slip.

Abhyanga has reacquainted me with my entire body, and my feet in particular. As yogis we are more aware of our feet than most, spending hours staring at them, wedging, bending and grabbing them in various poses, but Abhyanga really made me realize how grateful I am for them, and how I really should treat them a lot better. They work so hard!

Our feet deserve to be pampered, and if you don’t have time for the full Abhyanga practice, here are some fun treats for your feets…

1. H20+ Pumice Foot Scrub

2. Diamancel Foot Callus Rasp #20

3. Phytomer Gommage Marin

4. The Body Shop Hemp Foot Protector
