Hot Yoga

By now, you’ve almost surely heard of hot yoga. There is a reason why interest in hot yoga seems to have skyrocketed, and time has proven that this fitness regimen is more than a fleeting trend. In hot yoga, or Bikram yoga, the heat in the room is turned up to a scorching 105ºF. Hot yoga is intended to allow you to stretch more deeply and to kick your cardio up to a higher level than you would experience during a typical yoga session. Bringing a towel is key, as you can place it over your yoga mat to reduce slipping. In fact, if you decide that hot yoga is right for you, it is suggested that you purchase a yoga towel which will dry quickly and help you stay dry during your workout. Oh, and one more thing: you are sure to sweat–a lot. This fact makes your choice of workout clothing more important than ever. Here are some suggestions of attire which is well-suited for hot yoga:

High-waisted capris are the perfect choice for hot yoga. They are a shorter style to help keep you cool, while the higher waist offers you more coverage if you want to wear a sports bra or cropped top. These Cloudy Polka Dots High-Waisted Capris are both stylish and comfortable, with a blend of primary colors which are simple to accessorize with the rest of your workout wardrobe. They truly are the perfect yoga legging.

 If you are not a fan of capris or simply want a little variety, then these Blizzard High-Waisted Leggings are a stylish look. Like all of our clothing, these leggings feature our proprietary Salutex fabric with four-way stretch and incredible moisture-wicking capabilities. These qualities make all of our high-waisted leggings a great choice for hot yoga and any number of other intense workout routines.

 For a flirty, feminine look, patterned capris are perfect. These Music Flowers Small High-Waisted Capris are both beautiful and functional, and they will quickly become your favorite piece of athletic wear. Printed yoga pants such as this small floral print allow you to express yourself and stand out in a crowd. For hot yoga, they are wonderfully flexible and breathable, letting you reach your maximum state of zen.

When it comes to tops, a sports bra or tank is essential for hot yoga. Anything else–such as a t-shirt or loose-fitting tank–will simply soak up sweat and become heavy and uncomfortable against your body. The Kaleidoscope Racerback Support Tank is a nice option if you want something with more coverage than a sports bra. Plus, the stunning pattern is sure to keep you looking stylish.

 Support tanks come in a variety of styles. You can even find them in reversible varieties, such as this Serge Reversible Racerback Tank. It is a simple and cost-effective way to get the most from your athletic wear. The black top reverses to a grey shade with black seams, making it easy to coordinate with a variety of other workout pieces. Pair it with simple black leggings for a streamlined look, or switch to the grey side and match it to a patterned legging for a more unique style.

As for choosing the right sports bra for hot yoga, many find that medium support works well. It gives you the support you need without being too restrictive, which can help you stay comfortable during advanced poses in hot yoga. This Mist Strappy Bra is flattering yet comfortable, and will keep you looking and feeling your best during your next hot yoga session.

This Tribal Cheetah Strappy Bra is sure to help you feel fierce during your next hot yoga session. The medium coverage and quick-dry fabric are perfect for hot yoga, while the sexy, handkerchief-inspired print will keep you looking chic during every workout.
