December 10, 2014

More and more Canadians are turning to yoga: it’s inexpensive and offers many benefits for mind and body. If you wish to try it, suitable clothing is a must. Many stores offer a huge choice of yoga clothing for all tastes and budgets.

A few zen tips to help with your choice of yoga clothing


When it comes to the best yoga pants, there are two camps: some people prefer wider legs while others swear by tight-fitting pants.

  • Since both styles have their advantages and disadvantages, you should just choose according to your personal preferences.
  • Tighter pants enable you to better check your posture alignment, while wider pants provide more freedom of movement.
  • You should never buy pants that are tight around the lower abdomen – they could restrict your movements and also impede your blood flow when you’re holding a pose.


The rules that apply to pants also apply to camisoles and yoga t-shirts. Additionally, loose-fitting tops aren’t recommended because they stick to your skin when you sweat.

  • It’s better to wear something that’s close-fitting without being too tight.

The bra

Making the right choice of yoga clothing also includes what’s underneath.

  • Choose a wireless bra that won’t interfere with your movements.
  • Most sports bras work very well, as do yoga tank tops with built-in bras.
  • The important thing is choosing a model that suits your body type.

Where to buy yoga clothing

Thanks to growing demand, shops specializing in yoga clothing are opening everywhere.

  • Sports equipment stores and department stores are also usually well-stocked for yogis.
  • If you’re unsure about what to buy, their staff have a good knowledge of the products and will be able to advise you.

Wherever you prefer to shop, you’re sure to find a wide choice of yoga clothing that suits you and feels comfy, too.
