Get Into the Right Frame of Mind for Exercise with Motivating Yoga Wear and Other Techniques

The popularity of yoga exercise and its philosophy are undeniable. In fact, it is estimated that more than 250 million people practice it worldwide. Despite its popularity, the most devoted yoga followers sometimes reach a point where achieving the right mindset is difficult, upending the entire point of yoga, which is to maintain a regular discipline.

If your mindset is upsetting your yoga routine, there are several things you can do to help yourself be physically and mentally ready for yoga practice. You may be surprised at what simply wearing yoga wear you love can do to your mindset.

What is the Best Mindset for Yoga?

You’ll normally achieve the best results when you are relaxed and rested. In this state, your body will be more open to movement while your mind will be peaceful and calm. There is the notion of a beginner’s mindset, which is one that means you are open to learning new things and learning through awareness rather than practicing on auto pilot.

Wear Your Favorite Leggings to Almost Any Occasion

Everyone knows that yoga leggings are versatile and you can wear them almost anywhere. In fact, most women wear them when they’re out playing their kids or going to the supermarket. No less than Princess Kate herself has been spotted running around in yoga leggings with her son Prince George.

But aside from wearing them on casual days off, did you know you can actually wear the same yoga leggings to work or even to a night out with the girls? Yes, you can wear them as activewear, daytime wear, workwear and evening wear. How exactly do you style them for any occasion?

Versatility, thy name is yoga leggings

The reason is simple: yoga leggings, or yoga pants, can be worked into an existing wardrobe easily. If you want to maximize their use, all you need to do is look for base colors that can be paired with virtually anything, such as black, grey and navy. On the other hand, if you love wearing plain monochrome tops, then you can opt for for bolder patterns such as galaxy prints.

Because leggings form to your body shape, they are a great option when you have more bulky top layers - a flattering look on many body types. Read more on this article. http://bit.ly/2ol9KoO

Yoga Wear: Top Reasons Why You Should Have the Proper Leggings, Clothing, and Gear

Imagine this. You go into plank position, transition into a chaturanga, do the upward facing dog, and bend to a downward facing dog. You move with intention and as your body goes through the movements, you fall into a meditative state. Later in the session, as you are in savasana, you savour every moment of the quiet. Ask any yogi and they’ll say that a fantastic yoga session is medicine for the body, mind, and soul.

If you’re a newbie yoga practitioner who hasn’t got a clue on what to wear, knowing what to wear for a yoga session can be difficult. What should you wear to yoga practice?

The Right Yoga Gear

Let’s get this straight. Absolutely not jogging pants. Yes, these might be comfy, but these aren’t aren’t the most sensible things to wear to yoga practice. No, not your loose shirt, either. Once you get into a position like downward dog, a loose t-shirt is going to fall down and expose your nether regions to other people in the room. And even if you don’t get embarrassed, a falling top is going to be annoying and potentially stop you from transitioning into the next move correctly.

Consider leggings or form-fitting shorts instead. Believe it or not, this will even help you with your yoga practice, too, as your instructor can check if your form is correct. After all, you don’t want to injure yourself because your knees and hips aren’t in alignment, and a fitted top as well as the right pair of leggings can help do that.

Why Yoga Practitioners Are Embracing Ethically-Made Yoga Clothes

Sustainable living is more than just a hot topic among yoga practitioners. For many, it’s a way of living. Why? The reason is simple: the more you practice, the more you realize that we are connected in the great circle of life. Amit Ray, author of Yoga and Vipassana: An Integrated Lifestyle, says it best: “We all are so deeply interconnected; we have no option but to love all.” And what better way to show your love for the environment by using its resources responsibly through ethically-made yoga clothes?

But Really, Should Yogis Care About Sustainability?

Believe it or not, this is a question that many new practitioners ask themselves. While it’s easy to pick up responsibly-sourced beans for your early morning cup of coffee, thinking about things such as yoga pants can be harder. But more than just yoga clothes and food production, sustainability covers a wide range of issues. Read more on this article. http://bit.ly/2olurkl
