We all want to become healthier, happier, fitter, and more spiritual people. This is, after all, the 21st century, and I think I can safely say that the practitioners of yoga are on the forefront of leading the new spiritual revolution. However, do you really want to be spiritual at the expense of being cute? It’s all right to try to be Buddha, but do we really want to look like him? Do you really want to learn yoga without having the chance to wear cute yoga clothes?
For me, you cannot be spiritual without being fashionable at the same time. I know for many people this will sound like a contradiction, but to me it is not a contradiction at all. After all, the level of spiritual knowledge that you possess will show through in your interactions with other people. If you do not wear clothing that flatters you and makes you seem accessible and appealing, you will not be able to share your spiritual experiences as readily. And anyway, what is a better place for cruising for the young, attractive, and sensitive man or woman than yoga classes? When I wear my yoga outfit, I am making sure that my inner state of bliss finds its counterpart in the experience of anyone who is looking at me. In other words, my yoga clothes make me look hot.
One of the best ways to find good yoga clothes is in a specialty store, but this is far from the only place. Really, almost anything used for sports can be yoga clothes. There are certain styles that are popular, and it makes sense to stay as close to those styles as possible, but there’s still room to experiment. Any store that sells exercise clothing will be an invaluable source. For example, you can use warm-up pants as yoga pants. That high tech, synthetic shirt that you use for camping? It might just make the perfect yoga shirt. As long as you have a keen eye for fashion and a practical sense of what is required for yoga, you will have no trouble at all making interesting and innovative outfits.
Of course, when selecting yoga clothes, you should keep in mind that there is no need to sacrifice comfort for fashion. On the contrary, if you wear clothes that appear to be uncomfortable, they will also be unfashionable. Good yoga clothes can do it all. They can flatter your figure, give you plenty of room to move around, and comfort you with their softness and malleability.
