JUIL shoes giveaway!
All Spring and Summer long, I live in my JUIL sandals. I have at least 5 pairs. I am so sad it’s winter time now and I will have to retire them until next Spring. Juil’s are seriously the most comfortable and stylish sandals I own. I was beyond thrilled when Juil rolled out a line of ballet flats and now they have an entire Fall shoe line. I am dying for a pair of the LELO grey boots to wear over my yoga tights and with jeans all winter long. I know they will be as comfy as all of the other Juil’s I own and they look so stylish for NYC winters.
The thing that makes Juil so cool is the copper lined soles that really have a grounding effect when you wear them. I often talk about lining one self up with the energy of the earth at the beginning of each yoga class. I find it so important to stay connected and present off the mat as well as on the mat. I remind myself when I’m wearing my Juil’s to feel that sense of peace and stability with every step I take. Life is meant to be a moving meditation and the more in tune we are with each moment, the more joy we have every day!
The best present we can give our selves and others this holiday season is our presence. Every time you stop and notice your breath and feel the connection with the universe and others, you feel more alive and receptive. We practice yoga barefoot so we can root down in to the earth and let the energy rise up in us. Wearing Juil’s is as close as you can get to being barefoot when you have shoes on. My kind friends at Juil so graciously offered to give away a pair of their shoes to one lucky fan of mine. Let me know in the comments below why you would love a pair of Juil as well as how you stay grounded during the holiday season.
