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 to 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 and yoga shorts, 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 to be so skin-tight you and the twins have no room to breathe.
And of course, style plays just 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? Here are some of the very best pairs of men’s yoga pants currently available.
