We recently explored why everyone is still doing yoga thousands of years after the first postures were created.
Yoga’s popularity stems from its accessibility. It’s more than just a form of exercise, it’s a way of existing in the world. Its practice has evolved from centuries of honing several precursors to yoga—including bodily postures and breathing and concentration techniques.
However , getting into the mindset for it requires the right environment and proper gear since you’ll want unrestricted movement to experiment with yoga poses. Of course , who wouldn’t want to look good doing it? We rounded up eight pieces of gear to get your yoga practice flowing in style.
OMORPHO G-Top Long Sleeve
This workout top is also a workout tool. Launched by a former Nike exec, Omorpho’s range of “gravity sportswear” apparel adds resistance evenly and is designed to improve fitness without limiting mobility. The G-Top LS adds resistance training to any exercise that moves your arms and core, from yoga and running to boxing and tennis. The weight is spread close across the body, avoiding the joints for easy movement—even through the trickiest poses.
OMORPHO G-Short 2-In-1
As you may have noticed, we love multifunctional gear, and these 2-in-1 shorts are designed to boost any training session that works your legs—from cycling classes and HIIT to yoga and hikes. The particular shorts have an inner layer designed with targeted MicroLoad while the sweat-wicking outer layer has a four-way stretch, so you stay comfortable throughout any pose or activity.
Manduka Prolite Yoga Mat
You’ll need a dependable, nonslip mat to practice on, and what’s better than the No . 1 mat recommended by teachers worldwide? Built to last a lifetime, the particular Manduka Prolite Yoga Mat is meticulously crafted in Germany with ultra-dense cushioning for superior support, stability, and joint protection. Its closed-cell material seals out moisture and bacteria, making it easy to disinfect and clean.
Manduka Cork Block
A must-have for both beginner and intermediate yogis alike. Made of sustainable cork, this high-quality yoga block includes a firmness not found in foam blocks, and allows you to feel securely supported in achieving more advanced postures.
Beyond Yoga Shoulder Cropped Tank
This cropped tank has a stylish, asymmetrical single-shoulder design that can easily transition to more casual outings after a light yoga session. It also features a hidden shelf bra offering medium support, 4-way stretch, and UPF 50+ protection.
ENVT Leo Wide Leg Pant
This supremely comfortable mid-rise, wide-leg pant hits all the right notes. It’s lightweight, stylish, semi-tailored, plus features an elasticated waistband for easy access. You might not want to take these off after a training session.
