Just wanted you to know how much I love my yoga paws. they make downward dog pain-free! it's so nice to feel strong again in my practice and not fixated on how much my thumb joints were hurting!
great product - thank you ~ Liz
Thank you for this, and for your wonderful product... the paws make all of the difference in the world, especially practicing at home. ~Seth
Did I say I love the paws?... I do :-)Best, Minu H., Berlin, Germany
I'm using my Paws in my kitchen as we speak...ha! I LOVE them!! What a great idea! I will probably order a 2nd pair to keep in my flight bag and a pair in my kitchen...ha (I love doing stretches on a whim in addition to dedicated time to Yoga).Thanks, Susan Cullen
I received my Paws in the mail last Saturday but was not able to test them till just now. AWESOME! I feel safer, I can focus on my poses instead of which way
to balance my foot so I don't skid and I can sink really deeply into downward dog, I swear my bum touched the ceiling! I've attached a photo of my cat who seemed to think my new yoga mat and Paws were of interest, just for laughs. Vlad sometimes 'helps' me with my yoga...these paws should give me the upper hand in that! Thank you for all your prompt, concise and very friendly replies! ~Katrina
Thank you for your fantastic product! I never practice without my yoga-paws. The "original" Yoga-Paws provides incredible support for my hands and wrists during my practice. They feel like a pillow for my hands. More and more people in my classes are also using them now, and they have told me they will not go without them as well. Your product has given me that extra cushion for my hands and wrists that I needed to help my practice. I am no longer distracted from wrist pain, and can actually focus & appreciate the awesome benefits of yoga. In addition, your customer service is the best I have ever come across. AND, I no longer slip on my yoga towel in hot yoga. I could go on forever about my excellent experiences with your product. I'll be a lifelong user! Thank you!!! (By the way, I have tried all the other products out there, and you will not find a better product *in all areas* than in the Yoga-Paws). ~ Corrie
Thank you for your product! I have gone back & forth
between using the Yoga Paws (YP) and another non-slipe product everyday, but when MSU
put in floating bamboo floors on their new residential hall studio (i.e., the Well) at Holden Hall the YPs were the only thing that would stick and allow me to move without a mat. Personally, I practice hot Yoga with a space heater between 75-90 minutes a day and then another 30+ minutes doing PiYo under similar conditions. YPs have been able to take the intense wear and keep on going.
I received my YogaPaws last week. I absolutely love them. I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga for 3yrs, i know not long in the life of a yogi. I sweat alot, even hands and feet. All this time i have slipped and adjusted on my mat. I have tried yoga rugs, and towels, but still have that slipping issue, even to the point of hitting my forehead slipping out of downdog, and totally avoiding backbends during one class because of my hands and feet slipping out from under me (forgot my yoga mat towel). I discovered YogaPaws while reading Yoga Journal, and decided to try them. I am so glad i did, I no longer need my yoga mat towel, and can just be in the pose. Thanks for making my practice slip free. --Cristina
I just spent 3 months traveling the world exploring and making short films about critical water issues as Writer for Alexandra Cousteau's Expedition: Blue Planet. I brought along several sets of Yoga Paws for myself and the team, and they proved to be a lifesaver! They are so incredibly handy, eco-friendly, small and easy to carry in your suitcase, take with you anywhere, use them in your hotel room or out on a pool deck or wherever. We were on a crazy schedule. Whenever I had at least 15 minutes, I would strap on my paws and do some yoga -- in India, Botswana, Cape Town, Jordan, Israel and Palestine, and even back in the US. I LOVE THEM! Thank you, Yoga Paws, for keeping me committed to my yoga practice while traveling with your practical, simple, and effective solution! I highly recommend Yoga Paws to anyone who wants to take their practice on the road. --MeiMei Fox
I love your product and use it in my practice exclusively. It is far superior to other similar products that I have tried and I can tell from the fact that you have already made modifications that this is a product you created for yourself and chose to share with the rest of us. Thanks again! ~John

I just wanted to let you know that I used my yoga paws in my yogs class for the first time today. I just used the hands and the difference in my experience was unbelievable! I usually hold back a bit in down dog or go into child's pose instead of down dog because my palms start to hurt - but I had the paws today and didn't 'have' to go into child's pose to relieve my palms. THANK YOU!--Sandi
Wow! I love yoga paws! So nice not to slip anymore! I have never been able to fully enjoy downward facing dog because I am concentrating so hard on not slipping out. Never again! I noticed that others have commented on size, but I wear a size 9 shoe and have a narrow foot and they fit so absolutely perfect. Yoga paws have made all the difference for me. Mary M.
You are great! I can hardly wait to give them to some friends that are planning to travel.I first saw your Yoga paws in Ireland where my cousin brought a pair from Chicago.She travels a lot and brings them everywhere.A very well traveled pair of paws indeed.Thanks again...DL
First of all - quality. It's excellent. Excellent design and colors too.
Perfect fit for me. And very convenient in use. When you need it? When your mat is out of reach or inappropriate. It's not substitute for the mat, if I have a chance to unroll I'd better use the mat. But again, if you on the trip - no use to carry the mat weight and volume. If you in the office - no use to unroll in the conference room. You can slip in your feet and palm pads and do standing asanas and balances without too much gear preparation. By the way, palm pads very helpful for arm-balances like Bakasana, since there is more support than on the mat!
So here my bottom line:
- very useful
- very comfortable
- very convenient
- must have for every yogi (though it's not substitute for the regular mat)
Try it and you'll love it. They don't cost a million dollar, not even a half hundred!
You just have to try this nice and comfy gadget.
Many many thanks to the inventor and creator and all the team of YogaPaws!
From Russia with love!
I love the Yoga Paws!! I tried them Saturday when I waited for my daughter at her ballet class. I usually do yoga in the waiting room (the other parents must think I'm nuts). The Yoga Paws worked beautifully and feel really good on my hands and feet. There is a nice cushion in the palms. They'll be great to bring with me when I travel. My 8 year old daughter, who has resisted all my attempts to get her to take a kids yoga class, tried them on and they seemed to fit her. She loved them and started doing yoga. I was amazed at how much she has picked up just watching me and my practice group occasionally over the summer. Despite having two pairs, I may have to get her her own pair. I have three daughters, so there was some dissension as to who got to wear them.Thanks, Didi von Deck
I used Yoga Paws while I was in Yoga Conference in Hong Kong, they were really good, they made me feel very steady. Thank you so much! Cheers,-- Queenie
Yoga paws I come to know in the past is not the same product being sold today. The original YogaPaw worked well, but the new materials being used now make the Yoga Paws an indispensable tool for workouts on the road or at home. No need to carry a mat any longer. -- Mike Adams
I have a set of yoga paws and they are the greatest when I have to be on the go. Thanks again. --Mary-Ann BodyByyou
These Yoga Pawz are a Godsend. I just used them for the first time in my hotel, and they were wonderful. I can now do Yoga on a rug! And in many ways they're much better than a mat. So once again, thank you for getting them to me in time for this trip. I travel about 80% of the time and these are going to come in really, really handy! --Harry B. Sloofma
I absolutely love the Yoga Paws. As a heavy sweater, I would have trouble sticking certain asanas due to slippery hands and feet. The paws prevent all of that now. I can actually surrender completely to the asanas, feeling the burn without feeling the slip. They are great with or without a mat. Namaste. --PureMarketExpressGuy
I couldn't belive it. They actually work. My feet wanted to give way, but thanks to the yoga paws I was able to confidently and saftly perform all the poses I wanted. GREAT INVESMENT! Don't injure your self and/or others, get a pair of Yoga Paws! --Duke
Intrigued by the novelty of this product, I bought a set of women's regulars for my wife. The gloves fit like a ... glove (gong!) but the feet were two small for her. When I looked at Yoga Paws' own web site, I saw that Yoga Paws are made in many more sizes than Amazon carries. I called the company to explain our situation. As an earlier poster noted, Jaime at Yoga Paws was a terrific help. She immediately offered to send me the next larger size feet and asked me to send the others back once I'd received the replacements. The replacements arrived yesterday, and fit my wife perfectly. The Yoga Paws appear to be very well made and have ankle straps and thumb and big toe loops to help keep them in place. In a few trial vinyasas, Yoga Paws kept my wife's hands and feet firmly planted on a wood floor. --Jeffrey Frankel
I received my yoga paws last Saturday and used them over the weekend and in last night's class! They are wonderful! Being a pedicure addict, my feet are always buffed and slide on any mat. No longer. I was really able to take the poses to new limits, especially the ones during which i tense up because I know I am going to slip. It's a great product! And, I think may people who were in class last night will buy them after seeing them in action! Hi, Montclair yoga friends! --Ulla
Absolutely love yoga-paws! By far the best solution I've found for travel. Great to keep in the car for any impromptu yoga sessions too! --Amber Mangrum
This is the second set of Yoga Paws for me, the first set was lost somehow after leaving the studio one evening. I received my Yoga Paws when they said I would. They have really helped with the all my poses where I have to use my hands for stability, because I sweat a lot and they help keep me from slipping. --4T
Great Paws!i've tried other kinds of hand and feet mitts/socks for yoga while traveling (and don't want to carry a heavy yoga mat), and these are by far the best..they "stick" better and don't slide around on my feet or hands... --A.Jones
Yoga Paws are a much needed addition to my yoga practice. These well fitting gloves and booties add support and cushioning to my hands and feet. They can be used on their own or in addition to a yoga mat. I have found that they keep me from slipping and sliding from sweaty "paws" during more rigorous practices and are beneficial when holding static poses. They work great on hardwood floors and carpeting and are small enough to slip into a carry on for my next business trip. I strongly recommend these for any yoga practitioner of any level. Namaste! --TribalBlue
I am purchasing these because my daughter told me they are terrific. I having been thinking about making something similar, but since you already figured them out, I can do more yoga! --Jane
I had to write to let you know how much I love my new Yoga Pawz! I took them to class today, so I was a living "show & tell" for the product. Everyone was interested to see how well they worked for me. Thank you for a great product! --Kathy Bernett, Gladstone, MI
I teach Aqua Yoga and I often slip on the side of the pool so they will be a great asset. Also great for vacations. --Katherine Rushton
Love em!! I just gave my pair to my daughter who is volunteering in Africa for a month. Thanks. --K. Marcus
I'm going to be traveling by airplane so the last thing I want is to carry my yoga matt around with me so this is just the most perfect alternitive. --Nancy Hammann
I tried my friend's yoga paws and fell in love. I cannot wait to get my own pair!
Yoga Paws are the greatest!!! They are so convenient and comfortable, allowing me to do yoga anywhere without having to worry about carrying around a mat or stay confined to one. I would recommend them to any yoga enthusiast. --Amy Kemp,
I recently purchased your Yoga Paws for traveling and I have to say that they have changed my practice & life! Before, to take a mat w/ all else one needs for touring & traveling abroad w/ the insane weight restrictions one has to deal w/ these days just made it impossible for me to take a map. But now you have solved all that... thanks! They rock! Have a great day and thanks again for the great product!
-- Peace JC, John Cabán Music, Brooklyn, NY
Read about yoga paws in the Phoenix Sun-Tribute news- just what I'd been needing!!! Thanks! -- Crysta Meador
I am happy to tell you that the other set of paws arrived. I have been using them in my classes and in my own practice and they are just brilliant. I highly recommend them for any traveling yogi or any yoga instructor - they make doing adjustments and showing students how to modify/do poses so much easier because you have the mat at your fingertips - literally. I will hopefully order some for wholesale very shortly! Thanks again! --Jenn
I work on a ranch and do a lot of physical labor and horseback riding. My back is always wanting to go out and the Yoga-Syz routine, if I do the whole thing, will let my back slip back into place easily, when we come to the spinal twist on the floor. I have gone to a chiropractor when my back goes out, but I have given that up entirely, because all I have to do is the Yoga-Syz tape all the way through and again it slips into place painlessly. I did try to just do the twist to put it back, but that didn't work. The warming up, stretching, and working all of my major muscles, prepares and loosens everything up for the adjustment to happen. I had never done Yoga before, and I am hooked on Yoga-Syz. I am 53 years old and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay young and healthy! In fact I am sending a copy to a friend who is a commercial fisherman that has been having back trouble.
--Tom, Jackson, WY
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful Yoga-Syz program! My leg was sore from running, so I took a day off from running and did YogaSyz instead--Immediately after the 30-minute program, my leg felt good as new, and the pain hasn't returned! Thank you so much! Also, I find that it's a good addition to my cross-training program--something about those push-ups REALLY WORKS MY ARMS OUT, even though we only do ten of them! What a great program! You're the best!
Okay, just got off the phone w/ you half hour ago and I couldn't wait even though it's 10:30pm here...but I just HAD to try our my new pawz so I did a 15 min abridged routine and I had to share w/ you....they are AMAZING...they are like glue on the carpet, yet they allow your heal to pivot as it needs to...the sticky is in the perfect location...clearly the person who invented this thought it through...it is PERFECT for traveling and I can't thank you enough...your gifts are always incredibly thoughtful and practical...I love to get stuff that I can actually use...
I just wanted to let you know I am enjoying both the yoga paws and new Leather Palm gloves. I am using the paws when I do yoga in places I don't want to take my mat, i.e.. beach. The gloves I am using in yoga studio which is often warm since small and crowded and they are helping to stabilize my hands. --Mary Lou Doner,
Seaside Park, New Jersey.
If you have tried everything; the Chiropractors, the drugs, etc; now it is time to try this! As a professional I can say that this program has helped me with neck and back pain I have had for years. It has even improved my golf game!! -- Gerard Schmidtke DDS , Arizona
Gail Getzwiller has inspired me in my practice through both personal training and through the use of her Yogasiz videos for over 15 years. Thanks to Gail, at the age of 50, I feel youthful, strong and toned. In her recent video Gail has wisely created two 15 minute segments that can be done separately when time is of the essence, or combined for a deeper workout. I have purchased dozens of Gail's Yogasyz videos that I give to friends and acquaintances to help them get motivated and regenerated.
I am also very excited about Gail's innovative creation of Yoga Paws! Because I travel frequently I have found them the perfect fix in my suitcase. Now I can practice safely in my hotel with room. I simply spread out a clean towel on the floor and the paws keep me as safe as using a yoga mat. Give the Yogasiz Video and Paws a try. They are great addition to anyone's life! -- Paula Brill, Wickenburg AZ
It works well as a companion to my Tai-Chi workout. I use it both as a warmup and as a separate workout session. I replace the Tai-Chi warmup routine with the Yoga Syz. I feel much more relaxed, flexible and focused before starting my Tai-Chi workout. --George Mickle, Chicago, IL. Computer Programer
I have been using the Yoga-Syz video and think it is great. The environment the video is set in is very pleasing and relaxing in itself. Starting with an easy to follow yoga routine for different levels of age and fitness. Ending with a good satisfying workout. The clever yoga paws are easy on and easy off and really helps you maintain a more secure balance. After working out with the Yoga-Syz video and using the yoga paws I have better balance and flexibility. -- Carole Caparas,
Approaching 60 years of age, our balance isn't what it used to be. The clever YOGA-PAWS are easy on and easy off and really help you maintain a more secure balance. Not having to think about slipping, we can concentrate on a more relaxed routine. After working out with the Yoga-Syz video and using the YOGA-PAWS I have better balance and flexibility. -- Bob Caparas, California
I am 57 years old and have done very little yoga before starting Yoga-Syz. However, after just a few weeks I was amazed by my "new" flexibility. After a few months I was again amazed that I am now above to do some of the movements that I once thought would be impossible. I love Yoga-Syz and think it is a great way of staying in shape for people of all ages. -- Christina Mazotti, New Mexico
YogaSyz is a very powerful contribution to the art and science of yoga philosophy of Pantanjali. In my case I had been doing Hatha Yoga off and on for several years, when I began to do YogaSyz. Up until then I couldn't do a headstand (sirshasana) with any degree of stability or consistency, although this was my primary goal. After doing Yogasyz for several weeks I decided to try a headstand again. To my surprise the lower half of my body seemed pulled by an invisible string and I did a calm, solid headstand effortlessly! I was amazed! I have also seen results in my everyday life, with increased balance and stamina for more demanding activities.
YogasSyz is beautiful and gets results. -- Arnold Mazotti, New Mexico
I have been doing yoga now for five years, I got into it after a physical therapist recommended it to me. I find Gail's yoga tape to be very good for my neck and back pain. Not only is Gail my best friend, but a great yoga teacher who cares about what she is doing. I can't wait for her next tape to come out. --Colette Gilbertson, Chicago, IL
I Before I started the Yoga-Syz Program, I used to have headaches everyday, I couldn't sleep, and just felt bad all of the time. Now I feel good, I don't have headaches, and I sleep well through the night. I take a walk every morning, do my Yoga-Syz at least once a day, follow the recommended diet, and take my Body Balance and Ostroprocare everyday. The diet is easy to follow (makes shopping much easier!!), and in only one month I have lost over 15 pounds!! My clothes are already getting baggy and I can tell my muscles are toning up, I am stronger and have new flexibility! The thing I really like about this program is that it fits into my schedule. Since I work at home I can walk in the morning and do my Yoga-Syz for a break in the afternoon. Which is great for me because sitting and weaving all day can be hard on my back. The Yoga-Paws really help me do the Yoga-Syz, I don't worry about slipping and just get better at the movements everyday!! I also like doing my Yoga-Syz on a Navajo rug. It adds a sense of comfort and warmth to my practice. --Marian Nez, New Mexico
