When Carlene and I were thinking about taking a yoga class at our gym, our biggest problem seemed to be what to wear. When we peeked in the window of one of the classes last week, we saw women in all sorts of outfits, from very expensive, matching ensembles to tank tops and baggy shorts. We are both on a budget and don’t want to spend money on yoga clothes unless it is absolutely necessary. What we wanted to know was is yoga clothing for women all it’s cracked up to be?
- Not all yoga clothing for women is tight fitting. There are some women who actually like to wear baggier clothing when they are doing yoga since it allows them the freedom to move quickly, and sometimes not having a bra on makes the yoga class a lot more enjoyable (at least to them!). So, don’t be afraid of wearing normal workout clothes.
- Not all women have the funds to wear high-priced yoga clothing, so one thing that you can do is look in the discount stores. You will often find some great looking bra tops and shorts that would look fine in any yoga class.
- When you want to be stylish, you can buy your clothes from a yoga studio – but it won’t be cheap. You would be better off shopping some of the Online Yoga Store for women websites that are online. You can often find “last year’s model” of clothing available at a much discounted price.
- If you are looking for yoga clothing for women is the material that it is made out of. It is always best to avoid anything but natural fibers since they can pick up odors, especially when you are on down on the mat or the floor. Especially if you are using a mat provided by the gym, you should use natural fiber clothing to ensure that you can then wash it in hot water to remove any bacteria or germs you might have brought home.
You don’t have to look like a fashion model to take a yoga class, and in fact, if you do, you will look a little out of place. It is far more important that you are comfortable, have everything covered up that should be, and don’t mind getting your clothes a little dirty when you work out in your class.
