Barefoot Tiger: The Meaning Behind the Name
When you are barefoot, you are connected to Earth. You are grounded, and your sense of calm and stability increases. Being barefoot is also a kind of letting down your guard or vulnerability that is open and honest, yet powerful. The tiger is a strong being, graceful, efficient, powerful and commanding on the outside, yet humble and wise on the inside.
Dreamt up in a tiny NYC apartment kitchen back in 2003, the name ‘Barefoot Tiger’ was born as a vision for what optimum health, fitness and well-being really look like. To arrive at your best version of well-being requires invoking the qualities of being barefoot and being a tiger, simultaneously.
Being a Barefoot Tiger is a Way of Life
Our guiding principles:
To Guide and Be Guided – Barefoot Tigers share their knowledge to help others achieve their goals and remain open to the guidance and teaching of other people.
To Be Humbly Powerful – Barefoot Tigers are proud of that they have created in life, the work they are doing and where they are going. Quiet power lies in knowing that they are strong and able, yet humble enough to just smile and carry on.
To Be Human – We are all human. Barefoot Tigers know that they may stray from their path once in a while, but they always have the strength to come back to it. Even if it means asking for a little guidance.
