Today even sportswear is being experimented with more and more. a trend towards comfortable but fashionable clothes, no longer with the classic muted colors, but also more lively and dynamic ones.
In this buying guide, we will give you some tips on the best clothing models needed for this specific activity: not only leggings and t-shirts but also shorts, pants, and socks.
This is because when practicing sports it is good to make the right decisions in the field of clothing, not only in fabrics but also in current models, both for men and women.
How to dress for yoga? Here are the useful tips:
If you are a yoga lover, some precautions allow you to help yourself in the movements and exercises you do, without forgetting the total comfort and style of your clothing.
First, it is important to choose fabrics that prevent excessive sweating. Although yoga is a relatively calm discipline and the exercises are slow and gentle, it is still demanding and requires the development of certain resistance, so, as in all other sports, we tend to sweat.
For this, it is good to choose clothes made of cotton or natural fibers, just to avoid annoying and unpleasant situations, which may make you feel uncomfortable, especially if you are in a group.
Another piece of advice, which is very subjective and therefore not arbitrary, is the choice of colors: as we said before, today there is continuous research also in the design of sportswear and colors, but it is advisable to tend toward neutral colors instead of bright colors. stronger.
The reason for this choice is that neutral colors predispose the mind toward meditation and, in general, convey a greater sense of peace and tranquility, which is one of the main reasons why this discipline is developed.
Yoga clothes for men and women: the differences:
Yoga is a perfect sport for both men and women: in general, it takes place to develop one’s resistance, not only physical but also mental, because thanks to the exercises performed and perhaps with the help of suitable music, it creates a peaceful environment.
The objective is to promote muscle relaxation and therefore the choice of suitable clothing must follow this principle. Women, as we know, tend to choose their clothes following the latest trends, but always with an eye on comfort and therefore comfort.
This is one of the reasons why leggings are often chosen instead of sports pants or shorts. : Leggings give great freedom of movement and if they are made of a good fabric like breathable cotton, they don’t even bother to put them on.
In general, however, pants, shorts, or leggings must have a high waist, to give full support to the bust and waist. In the same way, also concerning the upper part of the body, it is necessary to lean towards comfortable clothes, not too tight but above all breathable: precisely because the exercises are varied and detailed, it is better not to choose shirts that are too large or long, because the risk is that, once upside down, you stay naked (or almost).
Then we come to an element that is often overlooked: Socks. Yoga is generally a barefoot sport, but socks can still be worn for personal hygiene but also comfort, such as those enriched with non-slip pads.
As for the male sex, then, the same advice can be considered valid: yes to comfortable and breathable materials such as cotton and natural fibers; the only difference lies in the lower body garment. In fact, for men, simple sweatpants are indescribable, with elastic at the bottom and not too tight.
In summary, the main tips for practicing yoga with proper clothing are:
Prefer comfortable clothing and breathable materials. , or in technical fabrics that regulate body temperature;
Choose clothes that are not too tight but not too baggy or have odd, outdated cuts, so they are suitable for any type of movement, even the most unusual. In addition, it is important to have a long-sleeved shirt or sweatshirt on hand for the final phase, that is, the relaxation phase;
In some cases, you can use yoga socks, especially for reasons of personal hygiene.
What are the best yoga fabrics?
When choosing the most suitable yoga clothes, it is necessary to take into account the material of the garments themselves. For yoga, the best materials are cotton, polyester, nylon, and spandex.
Nylon, for example, is essential not only to carry out the movements with total comfort and freedom but also to ensure certain durability of the garments over time; Spandex, on the other hand, has a great advantage that is perfect for sportswear, namely elasticity.
However, as time passed, more and more people began to be interested in suitable fabrics according to the disciplines performed, preferring natural ones in the case of yoga: some of these are bamboo fiber, Tencel, and hemp.
In any case, when choosing the right clothes, one more element must be taken into account, namely the type of yoga that is performed.
Yoga can generally be divided into two categories. : on the one hand, the high-intensity one, in which there is a greater tendency to sweat, on the other hand, the low-intensity one.
Importantly, if you do yoga at a high intensity, it will be necessary to choose fabrics that are breathable and allow sweat to evaporate, without creating any discomfort; If, on the other hand, low-intensity yoga is performed, then it will be enough to choose more comfortable and lighter clothing, which simply guarantees flexibility in the movements.
