7 Yoga Clothes Perfect For Restorative Flows
Maximizing your restorative yoga flow results can be as simple as dressing in clothes that help you feel good. Freeing yourself of distractions — like loud noises or uncomfortable gear that isn't fitting quite right — should help you stay present in a healing mindset.
The following breezy sweaters, zip-ups, joggers, and shorts are my go-tos for warming my joints midflow without restricting my movement. Having supportive socks on hand to combat cold feet always comes in handy, too.
Athleta Yoga Tie Back Sweatshirt
Athleta describes the Yoga Tie Back Sweatshirt ($56, originally $79) as being made of the "softest fabric imaginable." The top's crisscross-style back is a plus, too. You can secure the piece in place so it doesn't fall during Downward Dog while still getting that breezy open feel.
Adidas Believe This Parley 7/8 Tights
Adidas's Believe This Parley 7/8 Tights ($65) are worth looking into for unrestricted support. Designed to "move as fluid as water," the retailer notes that these leggings flex with your body, are made from sweat-wicking fabric, and have a high-rise waistband for extra coverage.
Beyond Yoga Featherweight Spacedye Joggers
I could argue that Beyond Yoga's Featherweight Spacedye Joggers ($88) are among the best summer sweatpants for yoga. Reviews describe them as "too good to be true," "extremely light, thin, and breathable," and "super soft." One pleased customer confirmed they "feel super delicate but so far have held up" and are "perfect for summer weather."
Old Navy Soft-Brushed 1/4-Zip Performance Pullover
The Soft-Brushed 1/4-Zip Performance Pullover ($33) from Old Navy is a great match for achy, stiff wrists because the thumb-hole loops will keep you covered through every pose
Lululemon Tale to Tell Quarter Socks
You're probably used to a sock-free flow, but having Lululemon's Tale to Tell Quarter Socks ($28 for two pairs) close by for a warm, comfy Savasana can go a long way. These socks provide snug-fitting arch support and are made of chafe-free fabric.
Baelef Cotton Straight Leg Pocketed Weekend Bermuda Shorts
Although sweatpants are great for warming up your joints, they can be a tad too cozy for the summer heat. That's where Baelef's Cotton Straight Leg Pocketed Weekend Bermuda Shorts ($22) come in handy. The loose fit, skin-friendly fabric, and soft feel will allow you to move freely and can hopefully reduce your chances of overheating.
