Practicing a downward dog or attempting a new balance pose at the yoga studio is difficult enough on its own, but it's made even more difficult when you're fumbling with sagging, too-tight, or uncomfortable yoga clothes. That is why it is critical to buy clothes that are breathable, flexible, and comfortable.
Personal preference, as well as the style of yoga you intend to practise, will heavily influence your yoga clothing purchases. When it comes to what you wear for yoga class, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. However, there are a few general guidelines that can help you choose the right outfit for your yoga practice. Here they are –
What to look for in yoga clothing
Natural fibres - As anyone who has an active lifestyle knows, the wrong clothing can make even the most enjoyable activity uncomfortable. That's why it's important to choose your yoga clothes carefully, looking for items that are both comfortable and breathable. The skin is the largest organ of your body and it needs to breath. So next time you're shopping for yoga clothes, choose natural fabrics such as cotton bamboo blends, as they allow your skin to breathe and won't cause you to overheat during your practice. Your skin will thank you for it!
Stretch - Yoga requires you to be flexible and your clothes to stretch along with you. If you want your clothes to stretch and retain their shape during yoga, you need to choose the right fabrics. Cotton knit garments with a bit of spandex are usually a good choice, as they have plenty of stretch to them and are designed to move with your body. All proyog yoga clothing have 3-8% spandex that makes them super stretchy and flexible for your practice.
Quality- Finally, choose quality over quantity when selecting your yoga clothes. It is better to have a few well-made pieces that will last you years than a cheap wardrobe that will fall apart after just a few wears.
No labels – Lables can be irritating and itchy as that can cause your skin to break out. All Proyog clothing have only printed labels which takes care of this problem. All the seams in our clothing are also flattened to prevent chaffing of the skin.
Yoga pants - fitted or loose?
There are a lot of choices when it comes to yoga bottoms. It can be overwhelming trying to decide what to wear. But the most important thing to keep in mind is that your choice should be based on your practice.
If you're looking for something stylish to wear from the studio to the street, yoga leggings might be the right choice for you. They come in a variety of colors and designs, and they offer a snug, fitted silhouette. The Proyog range of leggings are made from a unique blend of organic cotton and spandex that fit beautifully and feel super soft against your skin.
If you're looking for something with a little more coverage, yoga pants are a good option. They're usually ankle-length and have a high waisted design. They offer a snug, comfortable fit and are perfect for all kinds of practices. Check out the Vriksh Lite pants and the Bindu yoga pants form our collection.
Yoga dhotis are another great option if you're looking for something loose and comfortable. They're usually made from soft, supple fabrics like bamboo and modal, and they offer a stylish look.
Shorts are another good choice if you're looking for something practical. They offer a good range of motion and muscle visibility, which can be helpful for correction.
Choose the yoga bottom that best suits your practice and personal preference.
The perfect yoga top
Tops - When it comes to choosing yoga tops, you want to be able to focus on your breath and your practice, not on adjusting your clothing. Choose something that has a slim or a fitted silhouette so that it won't ride up or fall down during inversion poses. It should also be stretchy enough to allow a full range of movements. And, most importantly, it should be breathable so that you don't get too hot during vinyasa flows.
Bra - Any woman who has ever been to a yoga class knows the importance of a good yoga bra. Not only does it need to provide ample coverage and support, but it should also be breathable and moisture-wicking.
Layering pieces - If you plan to run errands after class, the last thing you want to do is put on a constricting piece of clothing. That's why layering is key. Throw on a loose jacket or over shirt or an oversized tee after your practice.
How to wear your hair to yoga class?
Yoga classes involving forward bends, inversions and back arches can really mess up your hair. Wearing your hair up in a ponytail or bun, or holding it back with a hair band are easy styles to manage through a class.
In conclusion, comfort comes first – how you dress is ultimately up to you, but just remember the basics and you can’t go wrong. Check out our collection of stylish yet comfortable yoga wear and find the perfect outfit for your next practice.
