I did a search online for toe cramps and learned that:
- The most common cause is ill-fitting shoes. Hmmmm, I'm not wearing any shoes during yogs.
- Another culprit is high heels . . . which I very rarely wear . . . especially in yoga class!
- Also to blame could be deficiencies in calcium or potassium - Now this is most likely my problem as my diet is pitiful.
To alleviate toe cramps, you can do special exercises designed to strengthen the muscles. Try standing on tiptoes and raising your body up and then down repeatedly, using your toes to support you. Hold each position for five seconds. Another good one is to pick up marbles with your toes and relocate them to another spot on the floor. Walking on sand strengthens toes, massages feet and exfoliates the skin … a great workout for feet!
