The Importance of Yoga Attire

By Edited Aug 21, 2016 0 0

When you perform yoga, it is easy to become tired quickly because of the heat. Especially when you are inside, heat can build up in your body, and make you sweaty and fatigued. Although most people do not think of it as such, yoga can be quite an intense activity, and once you become a more advanced practitioner, it gets even more demanding. Therefore, you need to make sure that you have an adequate supply of clothing to wear that is meant for yoga. If you are wearing your normal clothes to this activity, then they will get all sweaty, and you will start to feel uncomfortable. This is the last thing you want to feel when engaged in a relaxing activity, so it is imperative that you have the right clothes to deal with this.

Clothes that are specifically designed to be used with yoga are called, as you might imagine, yoga clothes. All of these garments are made to be loose fitting, because it is known that yoga requires one to make a lot of abnormal and elongated movements, and these would be almost impossible to perform in normal clothes. The advent of yoga-centric clothing has made the movement much more popular, as even if all the benefits remained but it was extremely uncomfortable to perform, yoga would be much less popular.

The attire for women and men differs in regular life, and the same is true for yoga. Women need to take in to account more things than men, but men also must find a way to wear good yoga clothes without appearing overtly feminine. You have to take all these things into account when choosing clothes. The best way to know you are doing it right is to get someone who already practices yoga to help you get the right attire, as they definitely know the correct things to do because they have had so much experience in yoga already.

A specific type of yoga that does the workouts in 100+ degree rooms, with 40% humidity is called hot yoga (as you can probably see why). This specialized type of yoga definitely needs its own type of clothes, or else you'll be very uncomfortable. The best clothes for hot yoga are shorter sleeve shirts as well as shorts or capri pants. These will help you to not feel suffocated from your clothing in such heat. You'll also want to choose clothes that are made out of fabrics that are quite breathable, such as 100% cotton. This will definitely make a difference when doing hot yoga.

No matter what type of yoga you'll be doing, you'll definitely want to make sure you are dressed for the occasion.
