Stiletto heels are beautiful but they are not known for their comfort. Some women won’t even wear heels because they hurt their feet too much. It seemed that the only way to wear heels was if you were ok with being in pain. However, one yoga instructor decided that she had enough. Here is all about this new type of yoga that is specifically for wearing heels.
Yamuna Zake is a yoga instructor from New York. Zake watched countless numbers of women everyday struggling to walk down the street for the sake of fashion. She decided that enough was enough. Zake decided to create a form of yoga that would help women strut their stuff pain free. She created a new style of yoga called Stiletto Yoga. Stiletto Yoga targets the muscles that are needed to walk in heels. Routines focus on strengthening the feet, legs, and back in order to not only walk properly in heels, but comfortably. It might seem like a silly new form of yoga, but it has enabled women to continue to wear the heels they love and be free of pain.
Yoga usually targets the whole body, so what can you expect from a stiletto yoga class? Zake made her class so that it follows a traditional yoga class but targets specific parts of your body. Instead of doing poses for your whole body, you do poses that will specifically help you wear heels. She also incorporates a small half-ball called Foot Wakers into class. Foot Wakers are used to massage and exercise the feet. The shape of the ball better prepares your foot for wearing your favorite stilettos.
It may seem silly to have a yoga class specifically for wearing heels, but it’s important to a lot of people. Some women love heels and wear them day in and day out as a fashion statement. But keeping up with the trends is no walk in the park. Wearing heels can really be excruciating. It can leave you with huge knots in your feet and bleeding blisters. Zake has provided a way for women to wear the heels they love, and feel sexy, confident, and comfortable in them. This is priceless. There are no comfy heels, but if there is a way to make your favorite pair of heels more comfortable. Give it a go!
