Yoga Clothing: Invest In Comfort

Even if you aren't a top-level yoga instructor, it's worth investing in a few good quality items of yoga clothing. Yoga apparel is designed to keep you comfortable as you work through yoga poses, and you'll enjoy your workout more if you aren't distracted by bunching shorts or sliding shirts.

Quality yoga clothes will last for years you take care of them. So, when you buy a pair or two of moisture-wicking pants or yoga shorts and a top made from a comfortable, moisture-wicking fabric in a style you like, think of it as an investment in your health and fitness.

Protect your investment with these yoga clothing care hints:

  • If your yoga clothing is made of moisture-wicking fabric, it will last longer and look better if you wash it in cold water on the gentle cycle with a mild detergent such as Woolite.
  • Don't put yoga clothing in the dryer; it will cause the fabric to break down more quickly.
  • Hang your yoga clothes to dry on a drying rack or on plastic hangers in the bathroom and they will dry quickly and be ready for your next workout.
Hair accessories are another good investment . Be sure you have headbands, barrettes, and ponytail holders to keep your hair away from your face. Long hair may distract you and may interfere with your breathing. Even if you have short or medium-length hair, you may want to use a headband or barrettes to keep hair out of your way during inversions or forward bends.
