Gaiam Pro - Yoga for EveryoneTuesday, November 01, 2016
Ever suffer from wardrobe envy when you come across a photo of a professional yoga teacher wearing a bohemian style yoga outfit? I do. All the time. Most often, I tend to brush off the idea that I could even wear something so stylish because it either won't feel comfortable or it just won't suit my body. It wasn't until I received an outfit from Gaiam Canada's new Infinitude Collection that I could actually entertain the idea of wearing a fashionable yoga outfit in a yoga studio and not have to worry about readjusting my clothes or wonder if I looked silly. Today I introduce you to my top three Gaiam Pro picks.
First up is Gaiam's Luxe Yoga Leggings. Featuring a boho inspired print with a Balinese twist seen here in Parrot Blue Infinity, these leggings are completely opaque and are made with a quick drying yoga compression fabric. They have a power mesh panelled waistband to help slim and support, with a higher rise at the back to keep you covered, and a hidden waistband pocket to store small essentials.
Next, we have the Quinn Bra Top in matching Parrot Blue Infinity that is designed for low to medium impact and has a wide open back for an unrestricted range of motion. The feature that I love most about this top is the adjustable mesh back panel that is not only breathable but adds the perfect touch of fashion to function. As with the Luxe Yoga Leggings, this top has anti-chafe seams and 4-way stretch for added comfort. The stay-put support band feels slightly tighter than most of my sport bras but the more I wear it, the less I notice.
Finally, this Gaiam Pro yoga outfit would not be complete without a Clover Long-Sleeve Top. This shirt is super fun with a flattering drape and a stylish open crisscross back strap detail that pairs beautifully with the Quinn Bra Top. I love 3/4 sleeve length but this is not the only reason I chose this shirt. It also features a banded stay-put waistband that looks great. You can wear it in the studio or even when you're out and about.
