The tradition of doing barefoot is one of the distinguishing features for all styles and directions of yoga. We take off our shoes before entering the yoga room and, once on the mat, we get rid of socks, remaining barefoot. Is it worth looking for the reasons for this in the traditions of the country of origin of yoga, India. Or there is a more utilitarian explanation, the teacher’s request to stay on the mat with bare feet.

The first reason is simple — hygiene. Unlike fitness training, where you work out in sneakers, on a yoga mat you not only stand on your feet, but also lie down. In various asanas, not only your feet are in contact with the mat, but also your body and even your face. The soles of our shoes carry dirt. Even if you use a change of shoes when changing shoes in the hallway, you cannot ensure complete cleanliness. Even with a change of shoes, you interact with the area where people enter in street shoes, and also visit the restrooms.

Sometimes, the need to stay barefoot is the reason not to go to the yoga room for fear of fungal diseases. However, if the rules of hygiene are observed, such a danger does not exist. In order for the skin of your feet to always remain healthy, it is enough to wash your feet with soap and dry them when you return home. It is also necessary to wear clean socks every day, and keep both street and indoor shoes clean by washing or spraying them regularly.

Another solution to this fear can be the use of an individual rug.


If you have a problem with foot or nail fungus. Seek help from natural essential oils. Tea tree oil completely heals the skin and nails, while not having side effects and addiction.

The second very important reason to go barefoot is safety. Now for classes, as a rule, they use high-quality rugs. These rugs have good anti-slip properties. This is necessary so that you do not slip while spreading your legs with a jump. And also, to ensure the necessary adhesion of the foot to the mat for good support and, as a result, the quality performance of the asana.

Of course, in addition to utilitarian reasons, there are also cultural and even esoteric aspects of barefoot practice. In a more divine and less worldly explanation, by exposing our feet, we demonstrate humility, before the Lord and before the sacred space of the yoga hall, which opens its doors to us. This is a way to show your best qualities: respect, discipline, devotion, and at the same time give yourself the opportunity to feel the Earth, which takes us for our dedication and practice.

Another reason is the sensitivity of the soles of the feet. It is said that more than seven thousand nerve endings are located in this part of our body, and from the point of view of oriental medicine, the entire body is reflected in the soles of the feet. That is, each nerve point located on the foot is connected to an organ or part of our body … Head on the thumb, ears on the little finger, genitals on the heels, etc.

On a much more subtle level, bare feet allow your own energy flow to more freely accompany all the changes that occur during yoga practice. Bare feet provide a vital exchange of energy between you, solar energy and the energy of the Earth. Bare feet maximize this energy flow, helping to cleanse and revitalize all of your body’s structures. They help us consciously connect to the Earth, our cradle. If you’re doing yoga in a park or other outdoor space, removing your socks will allow you to feel the textures of nature, allowing that energy to nurture you.

Sometimes, especially if you live in a cold climate, it is difficult to force yourself to remove your socks. You can stay in your socks in those positions where there is no danger of slipping and twisting your leg.

When you’re ready, you can take them off and experience the freedom of your feet and all their sensitivity.
