Buying yoga clothes can be both exciting and a little overwhelming as there is so much choice. So where do you start? What should you be considering?
Firstly, with the amazing you
YYG recommends that you start with yourself. Yoga, like you, is dynamic, flexible, fun and courageous. It is a journey of self-realization and a celebration of your inner self and your inner beauty. The choice in yoga clothing nowadays means that there is no reason to sacrifice style over quality, drab colour over bold and vibrant colours and patterns. You can choose clothing which reflects your style and symbolises the inner you.
Clothing made of natural fibres, like organic cotton and bamboo, feel better next to the skin but also make a positive impact on the environment. Natural fabrics benefit our psyche, energy and nervous system.
Choose clothing that is comfortable and practical. It should feel like a second skin. Avoid tight waistbands and sleeves that will restrict the blood flow. Yoga clothes need to be flexible enough to move with your body’s movement, provide support when doing more dynamically sequenced movements and comfortable enough for rejuvenating and meditative practice.
The clothing you choose will work alongside you in your journey and as you are investing in yourself, you should invest in your clothes. Recent advances in yoga clothing styles and designs have made them adaptable and stylish enough to wear every day and stand up to the rigours of regular workouts.
The final factors
What is important to you? For example, are the clothes eco-friendly, made locally? Do you want to support small businesses that are more globally conscious of how their actions can positively affect the world?
Yoga is all about finding that special place, calming the mind, body and spirit, so you won’t want to spoil all of that by worrying unnecessarily about how you look. Buy from suppliers that support your values and choose clothes that make you smile and make you feel amazing.
