Never-Boring Yogawear Guide

Eco-friendly yoga clothes and accessories

Tired of pulling on the same old stretched-out T-shirt and baggy yoga pants? Invest in yourself, your practice and the planet with eco-friendly, organic yoga clothing and accessories. From your top to your shoes to your bag, these seven essential yoga fashion statements are guaranteed to snazz up your yoga wardrobe and work for your body and your style, from the mat to the street. 

 

Flat Waist Bootcut Yoga Pants

Flat Waist Bootcut PantYour search for stylish yoga pants you can wear both on and off the mat is over. These Flat Waist Bootcut Yoga Pants combine flexibility and support with coverage — a slightly fuller cut through the leg so you don’t feel overexposed on your way to class. This environmentally friendly yoga clothes equivalent of the little black dress is made from 86 percent recycled polyester and 14 percent spandex so it retains its shape, with a smooth, crossover waistband won’t pinch or bind.

$78

 

Bamboo Yoga Tops

Hooded Eco TopMade from rayon from sustainable bamboo with a smidge of spandex for stretch, these colorful, lightweight Bamboo Yoga tops naturally wick moisture away from the skin. Wear the tanks in yoga class, then toss on the Hooded Eco Top or Short-Sleeve Cover-Up to run errands afterward.

Scoop-Neck Empire Tank: $38

Pleated Tank: $48

Adjustable Yoga SandalsYoga Flip Flops

"Spread your toes" is a favorite yoga teacher mantra for a reason. Separating your toes improves your balance, flexibility and alignment. Worn around the house or on errands, these Yoga Flip Flops re-train your feet to do just that while also helping to relieve painful foot conditions. A great slip-on for before/after your yoga class.

A favorite around the Gaiam office! Also available in black.

Yoga clothes are one of the accessories required for practicing yoga exercises. The clothing that you wear when practicing Yoga should be comfortable. Your yoga clothing should allow you to move easily and freely in the different asana postures without strain or restriction. These different types of yoga clothes would be very helpful for any yoga learner.
