Best Yoga Pants

The best yoga pants are inevitably the ones that eco-responsible and ethical brands produce. Today, it is essential to start a fundamental change in our consumption mode and even other aspects of life if we follow the yoga philosophy.

In all traditional yoga movements, yoga is practiced with clothes made of natural materials, mainly cotton, linen, and jute.

The skin is our largest organ of the body, and yoga is, among other things, a great practice of detoxification of the body, so it is essential that the sweat can evacuate adequately and that when the pores of the skin are open, they are not in contact with microplastics.

Natural fibers like cotton, bamboo, and linen are some of the most breathable fabrics. These are high-quality, sweat-absorbent, breathable, and ultra-soft materials. Yoga outfits made of natural materials are hygienic due to their resistance to odor, dampness, and bacteria.

Today, strong pressure is made on the market of raw materials, cotton, linen, and other natural textile fibers due to their eco-friendly and human-friendly properties leading to a substantial increase in price.

This phenomenon had the effect of keeping their margin; many marks concentrated on the new textile technologies such as the clothing in recycled plastic, polyester, and lycra.

Although these materials have their advantages, they are not suitable for yoga practice. The best yoga pants of 2022 are undoubtedly natural fiber yoga pants!

The Features of Good Yoga Leggings and Yoga Pants

Let’s now talk about the features that authentic leggings or yoga pants must have because they must intrinsically possess nuances of cuts to guarantee you ideal comfort.

The yoga pants and leggings must have a band either well elastic or light at the level of the belly because the breath is in the center of the practice! Sitting cross-legged to meditate, the abdomen mustn’t be compressed by an unpleasant elastic or a too-tight fit.

The pants or leggings must be tightened at the ends. Of course, it is easy to find tight leggings that will guarantee you not to fall back during your inversions, but this criterion is more complex for wider pants.

Therefore, the fact that they can be tightened at the ankles is a must-have! This will ensure that the pants follow you in all your movements and inversions. A detail that really makes the difference is the gaiters integrated into the pants, for example, on our flagship model, the Sohang.

So why are these gaiters so essential? Well, because these gaiters allow you to practice barefoot, which is very important in yoga, but to be able to cover your feet slightly during savasana relaxation or during your meditations. Moreover, these pants, of impressive aspect, adapt in reality super well to your size!

The right choice of yoga pants for women also depends on your practice. Slower, gentler yoga practices will call for loose-fitting pants, while faster practices will be more practical to perform with tight leggings or tight yoga pants.
