Yoga is a series of postures called asanas that come from the Hindu tradition in India. They are designed to stretch the body to increase flexibility, strength, and unity of body and mind with the help of proper breathing.
Although yoga classes are deeply relaxing, they are also very physical and you should be prepared to sweat. How much depands on the style of yoga, but natural fabrics such as cotton are recommended for maximum confort.
Whether you practice yoga or pilates at home or in a class, it is important to feel good so yoga fashion does matter.
It is important to wear something you like, even at home. So do take the time to pick out something suitable in the color of your choice.
When you feel great and look good you can head for your next yoga class with full confidence.
Yoga clothing for men and women
The main consideration when purchasing pilates clothing or yoga clothing has to be the stretch. You will want to wear a tank top or a t-shirt to allow stretching in all directions.
This gives you the choice of either very loose yoga wear that your limbs can move in freely or clothes made of close fitting stretchable fabric such as cotton with a little lycra in it.
Yoga pants and yoga shirts should be soft and comfortable. Generaly the legs are covered completely by a pair of pants and the feet are bare.
