The 4 Essential Criteria For Choosing The Ideal Yoga Outfit

Did you know that some people practice Yoga completely naked? If however, this option does not tempt you too much, you will have to find yourself a Yoga outfit! Do you want to find the perfect outfit to feel comfortable and feel good? I asked myself a lot of questions when I was looking for my own outfit and I groped a lot before finding the perfect outfit! I wish to share my experience with you and help you in your choice. So before rushing to any sports store and choosing your outfit in 5 minutes flat, read this article to be able to make an informed decision that you will not regret!

The composition of your Yoga outfit

To create your Yoga outfit, you will need 3 main parts:

-A top
-A low
-Underwear

Below you will find out how to choose each piece, focusing on the most important aspects.

There are also items that you will not need and will leave in your bag to practice Yoga. You guessed? These are your jewelry and your watch if you wear them! Even if your jewelry is very Yoga, like the two examples below, remember to take it off before you start your practice!Without more suspense, discover the 4 essential criteria that your Yoga outfit must have to be on top.

The 4 essential criteria for the perfect Yoga outfit:

  Comfort
  Good “breathability”
  The style
  Value for money

1. Comfort

The goal is to find a comfortable Yoga outfit that will be completely forgotten and allow you to focus on your practice. A good Yoga outfit must be 100% adapted to the movement! Even if you wear tight yoga pants. This is why we do not practice Yoga in jeans! In addition, your Yoga outfit should not block your blood circulation, nor tighten you too much.

2. Breathability

Your Yoga outfit should keep you dry even during your most intense movements. This is why you need to find a material that offers good breathability, that is to say capable of retaining your perspiration. Depending on your preferences, you can opt for natural materials (cotton or bamboo in particular) or synthetic.

3. The style

Of course, we don’t come to Yoga classes to indulge in a fashion show! But if you manage to find a Yoga outfit that also pleases you visually, then you will feel better about yourself each time you practice Yoga. Depending on your mood of the day, you may want either a sober, solid and perhaps dark legging, or a much more funky and original legging.

4. Value for money

You will naturally take into account the budget criterion when choosing your outfit. I would say that the amount you will invest depends on the frequency of your practice. To begin or if you only practice Yoga occasionally, you can settle for clothes offered at affordable prices. On the other hand, if you practice very often, almost every day, then you will undoubtedly want to invest a little more means in the choice of your outfit. You will spend a lot of time wearing it, so much that you feel comfortable! The ideal situation is to find parts that offer you very good value for money and that favor durability. If your outfit is resistant, you will not need to renew it every 6 months!
