Finding Yoga Pants?

When looking for the right pair of yoga pants there a few things that need to be considered.  Don’t just buy the first good looking pair that you see, know what you are looking for beforehand.  You can’t judge a pair of yoga pants by the way they look.  Do the move well, are they comfortable are too hot, are they too thin?  All of these are questions that must be taken into consideration.

When doing yoga clothes you put your body and pants into positions that you don’t get into during your normal daily activities.  This is why you can’t just wear anything to do yoga in, it must move with you.  You can only bend as far as your yoga pants will allow you.  So for this reason you pair of pants must be as flexible as you are or will become (if you are just starting yoga).  So once you’ve decided that your pants are indeed stretchy enough we can move onto the next item in our checklist for yoga pants.  Do your pants stay where they should when you bend?  If they don’t stay where they should then you will be showing your underwear with every downward dog and nobody wants that.

So your pants fit well and they stay up, but do they let you breathe?  Jogging pants get hot and are heavy.  You want to be comfortable when doing yoga so make sure they aren’t too thick or too thin.  When they get too thin you can see through them in some lighting.  Also make sure the colour is good for you.  If you sweat a lot you might want to avoid colours that show that sweat off, like gray for example.  So if your pair of yoga pants can pass this checklist than you are ready to hit the gym and get your zen on.
