2. Wear yoga-specific clothes
Appropriate tops and bottoms are worth the investment for yourself.
“I like to wear clothes that make me look and feel good,” admits Waka Yogi, creator of Yoga Body Secret. She likes HPE and Beyond Yoga brands.
Lolë White Tour ambassador and yoga teacher, Grace Dubery admits to being discerning when choosing yoga wear. And that has led her to this fashion formula: full-length leggings and plain spaghetti strap tanks (no racer-backs). “My practice clothes have to be simple and need to be able to endure wear and tear. My go to pieces are Lolë’s Salutation Leggings and their Delicate Tank Top.”
And because you’re on your back and tummy throughout different poses, leave the complicated sports bras in the drawer. You don’t want bra hooks, multiple straps and rough seams digging in into your skin. And while you might think a baggy shirt is more flattering than a tight tank top, Dempsey Marks, certified fitness trainer, yoga instructor and author of PreGame Fit, disagrees: “I don’t like the way loose clothing hangs and gets caught on my limbs during practice.”
