Parivrtta Anjaneyasana (Revolved Crescent Lunge Pose)
If you're gifting Paws and unsure of size, see our tips below. If you're still unsure, don't worry! We offer *Free Size Exchanges.
**FULL SETS (Hands and Feet Packages) of YogaPaws compliment each other. 90% of customers will wear the same size in hands and feet. If you measure differently in hands than feet and need to purchase Gloves and Sox separately, use code MIXMATCH at Checkout.
Finding the perfect fit requires factoring in the width and thickness of the foot, not the length/shoe size. On the first fit, YogaPaws Hands and Feet should feel tight. They will stretch to their final fit in 1-3 hours of wear. The chart above will give a snug fit after stretching.
If you find that either the hand or foot not to be a perfect fit within your package, email us -- we'll swap them out for you, free of charge.
When you get your YogaPaws, don't just try them on, practice in them! They will feel very different when in action. This is how to tell if the sizing is correct for you.
Size #1 Women's XS is for all those really petite Yogi's out there.
Size #2 Women's Small/Regular -- this size fits most women.
Size #3 Women's Large is for women that have wide hands and feet and who also have a tendency to buy wide shoes and large gloves.
Size #3 Men's Small is a for men who have a narrow foot, and wear a small glove.
Size #4 Men's Regular/Large is a one-size-fits-most for Men and it is our goal that this size will fit the majority of the male demographic.
*Please note that Free Size Exchanges can only be provided for YogaPaws products when purchased from YogaPaws LLC. A valid Order Number/ID from either Amazon.com or YogaPaws.com must be provided. If your Paws were purchased from an independent retailer, please contact them with your sizing concern.

How to wash your YogaPaws:
The easiest and best way to wash your YogaPaws is to flip them inside out so that the towel lining is exposed, put them back on like gloves and wash your "hands" under the sink, in cold water and a gentle soap. (Dr Bronner's is a great one!) Once clean, just remove, turn right-side out, and air-dry.
Can I put my YogaPaws in the washing machine?
We DO NOT recommend that you put your paws in the washing machine. However, if you must, set the machine to delicate, cold-water cycle. Place your Paws in a delicate garment bag, or the mesh bag included in your package, and proceed. Air-dry immediately after the cycle completes.
How often should I wash my YogaPaws?
We recommend washing your YogaPaws after each heavy use, or 2-3 light uses. Just like washing your hands, keeping your Paws clean keeps the dirt and oils that emit from your pores when you perspire from accumulating within the towel liner of your YogaPaws.

Benefits: In addition to approving your core strength and balance, this posture stretches your obliques (side muscles), and strengthens your thighs.
How it's done:
- Beginning in Downward Facing Dog, lift your left leg to the sky, and then bring it forward between your shoulders.
- Drop your right knee (this is the modified version) for high lunge version, keep your right knee off the ground.
- On inhale, twist your torso so that your left elbow is hooked over your left knee.
- Bring your palms together, elbows and shoulders in line with each other
- Lengthen your torso, keep it straight, avoid folding on one side or another
- As a checkpoint, ensure that your palms are at the center of your chest. If they've moved to the side, you're not twisted with a long line.
