Can I share some secrets with you? I have been a fitness professional for over 12 years, teaching everything from kickboxing to now exclusively yoga. The last three years of my life has been dedicated to yoga on the beach, which means I spend most of my time barefoot, with sand between my toes. Despite my sun-kissed barefoot life, this Yogi still loves a good sneaker! The dilemma I have most of the time is mixing comfort, fashion and my lifestyle.
Most yoga studios will make you remove your shoes before entering the sacred space. However, outside the yoga studio there are no rules and shoes can be a great benefit to your practice. If your yogi toes are not flexible or you are trying to work on something new like jumping back into chaturanga, shoes will give you the added support you need to feel secure. I am always amazed at how much better I balance in a handstand when I have shoes on. Wearing shoes not only helps my handstand, but also makes for a popular photo on Instagram!
I first found Skechers when my two boys asked me to buy them for their first day of school. My little darlings of course were attracted to the flashing lights and easy-on straps, but I as a mother loved how durable they were. Year in and year out they asked for another pair of Skechers and I was always impressed with the quality. I decided to check out a few pairs for myself and fell in love with not only their fashion but also comfortable fit. As a mom who is sometimes on a tight budget, but loves fashion, Skechers is the perfect brand for my family and me.
I love to feature brands that I not only wear in my real life, but also make for an interesting image on Instagram. Skechers is a perfect fit for this Instagram Yogi Mom. I truly value my followers and want to represent companies that I feel are something that I can endorse and recommend to the people that follow me.
My life isn’t all about the beach, yoga and children. I also love to dress up from time to time. Skechers has many wedges and cute sandals for me when I’m not busy being a mother and teacher and my husband and I get to go out on a date. If you are looking for a cute, affordable, comfortable shoe, try out Skechers. If you strike a pose in your cute new shoes for Instagram, don’t forget to tag @beachyogagirl!
