The 9 Best Yoga Pants For Men To Satisfy Your Flexible Inner Hipster

There’s no denying yoga is ever so slowly taking over the world. The discipline once heavily associated with women is now being accepted by guys everywhere, due to the numerous benefits it can provide. These include improved muscle strength, body conditioning, flexibility, and improved mental well-being.

Despite its associations with fitness, however, the clothes you wear to practice yoga need to be drastically different from those you would normally wear to the gym, or outside for a run (and you certainly wouldn’t wear your cycling lycra).

When it comes to yoga pants, you want to look for fabrics that are stretchy so that they can move as you do as you work your way up to being able to perform the splits. Coverage is also key because even though pants lend themselves to having longer legs to avoid the risk of ‘hanging low’, you don’t want your pair of men’s yoga pants to be so skin-tight that you and the twins have no room to breathe.

And of course, style also plays an important role. Yes, you’re going to want a pair that ultimately performs well, but you’ve got to look cool in front of the ladies, right?

What materials are best for yoga pants?
