What to Look for in Yoga Leggings: Having the right pair can be as important as having the right yoga mat for your practice. Yoga leggings are diverse as the different styles of yoga, and depending on the style of yoga you are into there is a legging for that! The main thing to think about is having leggings that have the correct cut and fabric for your practice. Yogis who enjoy a slower more subtle practice will find soft luxurious fabrics like organic cotton and bamboo to be a perfect compliment for hanging out in pigeon pose for awhile. Hot yogis need a lot more moisture wicking from fabrics like recycled PET, Supplex, and Lycra. These fabrics dry quickly and create a second skin feel to your yoga leggings so they'll stay up and with you as you move through out your sun salutations.
Brands to Look Out For: Yoga leggings are kinda what we do here at Evolve. We love them and the number of brands and different types can seem overwhelming, so we're super happy to help you figure out what brand best matches your individual style. Brands like Green Apple, Hyde Yoga, and LVR Fashion are made from organic materials and feature a large range of tie dye washes, solids, and patterns in every color. We love the LVR Organic Bamboo Stripe Legging for fun tie dye stripes and a variety of colors. For a great supplex legging we love brands like Beyond Yoga and Hyde which both feature solids and prints in super high quality fabrics that will stay with you as you move through practice. For hot yogis we love printed leggings from brands like Koral, Niyama Sol, and Yoga Democracy which are all made from Recycled PET, a fabric made of recycled water bottles. Of course there are tons of of other brands killing it in the printed legging game like Onzie, Emily Hsu, and K-Deer which all are made for hot yoga, but can be worn to any yoga class.
