When buying yoga wear, the keyword is a comfort. You should be able to comfortably move and bend without clothes so tight they stop you, but they should be tight enough so that you do not stumble on them. In some cases, you can use loose gym pants for your Yoga lessons without problems.

Depending on the type of yoga you are attending lessons you might want to buy something that is easy to wash; for example, if you are practicing Bikram Yoga you will be in a heated room, and sweat a lot, so that the synthetic fibers will soon become uncomfortable.

Loose cotton pants and a t-shirt that is long enough for you to bend without fear of showing off too much meat is often more than enough equipment for your Yoga classes. You can choose to wear shorts or long pants, depending on what makes you more comfortable.


Most people practice yoga barefoot, but if you attend a yoga studio is worth getting a pair of gym slippers for comfort while walking around to get to the room where your lesson takes place. If you feel uncomfortable barefoot you can use Yoga socks to cover your feet as well.
