What to Wear to Yoga Class? First of all, I think wear comfortable is the no.1 rule, after all, practice yoga means pursuit for a better version of yourself. And breath is an important part in yoga practice, wear comfortable yoga clothes is crucial in maintaining good breath. The second rule would be choose yoga clothes that can boost your performance. You do not want to wear a top that is so loose it will fall down when you are doing downward facing dog pose, right? Hence, snug fit yoga tops and leggings are essential for good performance. The third rule would be choose yoga clothes that are moisture wicking. Yoga practice can be quite intense sometimes, especially in hot yoga when the classroom would be heat up to 80 degrees sometimes. You will thank yourself for picking moisture wicking clothes as they help you maintain comfortable and cool all the time.
How to choose yoga clothes?
First, find your favourite yoga styles, like yoga sports bra, yoga tank, yoga leggings or else. Then you are gonna have a pool for your yoga clothes, pick some of your best fit styles.
Second, choose a good sports bra. It is important to wear a good sports bra as you know they are essential for having a good yoga session. Yoga sports bra will provide essential support for your breast, making it relatively easy to do all sorts of poses.
Third, pick your yoga leggings to complete the look. Wearing yoga leggings longer than knee length is recommended for any yoga class, the more sweaty you get, the deep understanding you will get what yoga leggings can do for you. They wicks moisture away very quick and reduce friction from air, especially when your skin is very sweaty.
What should you not wear to yoga?
First, normal bra is best not to appear during yoga sessions. Low impact exercise like yoga requires less support than other sorts, thus maximum comfortability is your best choice, a sports bra would so do.
Second, loose fit tops and bottoms are best not seen during yoga class. Like mentioned above, loose fit top or bottom will fall down when doing some sorts of poses. This will drag down your performance.
Third, some people don’t wear yoga pants to yoga class, that is said, they wear casual clothes to classes, this might not be very wrong, but I recommend not wearing lounge wear to classes because yoga pants are better. They are better being supportive, wrap you legs quite well and wick away moisture quite quick.
What footwear do you wear to yoga?
Most of the time, we do not wear socks for yoga practice, that is to say, we practice yoga barefoot. Some yogis like to wear anti-slip socks to classes, which may cause exactly the opposite effect. No need to think about socks, and wearing slip-ons to yoga studios, which is easy to put off and put on, this is recommended.
For cold weather days, do not wear socks too.
Best picks for your yoga outfit
The whole point of yoga outfit is about your own comfort and mobility. And based on this, pick some style you really like. For instance, I love racerback sports bra, that is why I have all sorts of racerback sports bra of different colors. For yoga bottom, I love yoga leggings, they are stretchable, comfortable and moisture wicking and super soft. I can tell that myself is very relaxed while wearing a pair of snug leggings.
Do not get me wrong, any yoga clothes that make you feel comfortable is suitable for classes. The good feeling you have when put on your yoga clothes will largely boost your performance during practice.
