About Brand: Owner Natalie Oldroyd's mission for Yoga Democracy was to create a company whose philosophy is in alignment with the principles held true in yoga. Drawing from the principle of Ahimsa, meaning to cause no harm, is the foundation for the mission statement of Yoga Democracy, from choosing the fabrics made from recycled water bottles, nylon from fishing nets, and carpet to assembling the garments in the USA to avoid manufacturing outside the USA in unsafe conditions for workers. However, aside from the killer commitment to the environment and community these guys make insanely cute printed leggings that wick moisture at lightning pace and
Key Pieces: The Butterfly Yoga Legging has been our most popular seller with it's gorgeous impressionistic inspired watercolor-esque butterflies. The Amber Marilyn Shorts are another great piece especially for those who practice hot yoga or SUP yoga. If you're into hitting the ski slopes or just want to add a little nordic vibes into your wardrobe the Amber Cropped Leggings and the SKi Season Cropped leggings feature a cool print reminiscent of vintage ski sweaters.
Where to Wear it: Yoga Democracy leggings are meant for high endurance workouts like Vinyasa Yoga, Hot Yoga, Bikram, or anything that will get you working up a sweat. Their high-wasited waistband is great for keeping you and your pants in place through out your workout. When you're not on the mat we love the look of the leggings with boots and an oversized sweater to create a cute look for running errands or grabbing lunch with girlfriends.
Why We Love Them: We love Yoga Democracy because of their commitment to conscious living by looking out for the environment. With each pair of leggings made with the equivalent of 12 recycled water bottles or half a pound of recycled fishing net. On top of making adorable activewear, Yoga democracy donates 10% of its profits to environmental causes worldwide. We also love the high waistband that can be worn high over the hips or folded over giving you the ability to customize your Yoga Democracy leggings.
Sizing Feedback: We've found that these leggings run on the small side and recommend sizing up for less of a compression fit.

YOGA DEMOCRACY REVIEWS:
"I love these leggings! I had to exchange them for a bigger size, but once I had them in the right size they became my go-to pair! Such fun prints!" (via Evolvefitwear.com)
" These are great. I'm 5'11" and an athletic build. The xl fits great and is very comfortable for yoga class." (via Evolvefitwear.com)
"These pants are great. I love the design- super funky and different, and the material is amazing. I love that they're made sweatshop free and from recycled materials. I would like to note though that I was expecting them to be a bit longer. They're crops but if you look at the pics they fall right above the ankle, when in real life they are at least 6 inches higher (mid shin). It's not a big deal and I still love them, but just want to mention that in case someone does specifically want the fit that is seen in the model. I recommend these and will be buying more from this brand! Great price and quality" (via Evolvefitwear.com)
"love these leggings!!!! Lots of compliments!!!" (via Evolvefitwear.com)
"These are like a high waisted Teeki pant! I love them! Fit like a second skin!" (via Amazon.com)
"I have bought three pairs of Yoga Democracy pants in the past month - all cropped length. The cut, material and funky prints are just amazing. They are super comfortable to wear in and out of class- are not see through, do not need adjusting when doing a hot yoga class and dry extremely quickly. I would highly recommend these leggings. I am in love with mine!!!" (via Yogademocracy.com)
"Wow. Great fit, smooth and extremely comfortable. Waist band really flattering too. Not a short crop - finish above the ankle on me. I'm 5ft 5" I'm a UK size 12 and the medium fits perfectly. Ordering more. Love em! " (via Yogademocracy.com)
"Wearing them right now as I'm writing the review. So in love with this print... ok.. I have been crazy buying leggings off the net over the last few fewmonths and some disappoint and some are winners. This is a winner. One thing I look out for is for the flatbacking (is that what its called? The stitching securing the seams) to be stretchable. I've bought a few pairs where it rips when you stretch or even pull up the pants. :( These are strong and stretchy. I also like it that the waist band is holding my jelly tummy in, and isn't rolling down!! So no waistband fiddling during class! Thank you. I love them. Good quality, great workmanship and value for money. " (via Yogademocracy.com)
