Yoga Pant Essentials

Wearing a comfortable pair of yoga leggings can make a huge difference to your practice. Yoga is all about mindfulness and being aware of your body, and wearing ill fitting, uncomfortable yoga pants can make this really difficult. Here are a couple of things to consider when choosing your perfect yoga pants:

Fit

Well-fitting sportswear is important to keep you looking, feeling, and performing at your best. Making sure your yoga pants have an element of compression is great for making you look and feel streamlined and preventing any fabric from getting in your way. By choosing compression yoga pants, you have the option of added sculpting and stomach control, and they look great at the gym or at the mall. Poorly fitting yoga pants run the risk of falling down or being too tight to move comfortably in, both of which can impact your practice.

Pockets

It can be frustrating when sportswear doesn’t have pockets to store your essentials like your phone or keys. These yoga pants have a specially designed smartphone pocket, to prevent you from losing or damaging your phone during your practice or workout. This means you can have your phone on you and listen to music or a podcast whilst you work out, and also makes them super helpful for daily tasks like running to the store. These are the perfect choice for your busy schedule, as they can go from the office, to the store and straight to the gym, preventing the hassle of changing and lugging a heavy gym bag around all day.

Material

Nylon is a common choice for sportswear, as it is flexible, durable, and breathable. It also has moisture-wicking properties, allowing the material to dry easily as you sweat, or if you are wearing them in wet weather. Other materials may retain moisture, making them uncomfortable and heavy, and increasing the risk of blisters. The durability of nylon means that you can wear them and work out in them repeatedly, and they will last you a long time. Not only is this helpful if you enjoy practicing a lot, but it also means they will withstand being repeatedly laundered after sweaty exercise sessions. Many elements of sportswear are made using nylon, such as socks and ankle sleeves, so they are a great choice for yoga pants too.

Flexibility

This is a key requirement of yoga pants, as they need to feel almost like a second skin. Your yoga pants need to move with you as you change your positions, and not chafe, fall down or break. These yoga pants are totally squat proof, meaning you can move freely without worrying about any splitting seams! They are made of a combination of nylon and spandex, with the latter being another flexible material that does not wrinkle or shrink and recovers to its original shape and fit. This means that when you stretch the material if you stretch your body, it will bounce straight back into the original shape of the yoga pants, preventing unflattering and unhelpful bagginess.
