Joy-a-toes are fabulous toe spreaders you can use in your practice to bring awareness to the tips of your toes – balancing the myofascia and supporting the joints of the foot. They come in pairs, and in two sizes, Small and Large. Begin by wearing the Small ones when sitting or practicing your asanas, then move on to Large ones as your toes spread.
We love cozy, beautiful and colorful things, and when they are also unique and made from recycled material, be sure we’ll be all over it.
