Yoga Pants, Custom Yoga Pants


Yoga pants are typically black, cotton-lyrcra or cotton-spandex blends with a fold over waist band. They are form fitting and allow for flexible movement. Yoga pants are usually found in black but can also be found in charcoal, heather, navy, red, pink and blue with other colors available. Styles with the fold over waistband often utilize it to showcase fun colors and prints. Other waist band constructions include a v-shaped front with a low rise and a higher rise in the back to provide full coverage when bending forward. Side seams are sometimes eliminated or flattened to reduce pressure points when laying on the side of the body.

The practice of yoga as a mental, physical and spiritual practice began thousands of years ago. In America today yoga is often practiced as a type of exercise, like Pilates, without the spiritual component. A 2012 survey reported 20.4 million people in America practice yoga and over 44% of non-practicing Americans are in interested in yoga. People are drawn to yoga for increased flexibility, stress relief, general physical fitness and improving health overall. There are many variations of yoga practiced today including Kripalu, Iyengar and Ashtanga.

All types of physical yoga are known for stretching, strengthening and sometimes contorting positions. Close fitting, stretchy clothing serves several purposes for yoga. Several moments are often strung together in a sequence carefully timing breath and movement. Well constructed yoga pants move with the body without falling down, rotating uncomfortably or constricting movement. When clothing is not a concern more attention can be placed on the activity at hand. When first learning yoga under the careful eye of an experienced teacher it is critical that the teacher can observe and correct posture and technique.

Yoga pants are gaining popularity outside the yoga studio. They are favored in gyms and Pilates classes and by dancers and athletes. As the new millennium began yoga pants began to replace sweatpants as casual wear. Popularity led to major brands and stores carrying their own line of yoga pants. They are primarily popular with women who enjoy the comfort and style offered at low prices. Yoga pants are considered casual wear in many circles. Many college students regularly wear them to class, despite never making it to the gym. Some people disagree with the practice of wearing yoga pants as regular clothing. They find it sloppy and too casual, hardly better than wearing pajamas to the grocery store.

Even though most yoga pants are worn by women they are quite popular with men. The thick fabric of yoga pants flatter many women’s lower bodies. Men enjoy the view provided by this specialty garment.
