It is kind of difficult to know what you have to buy especially when you are just starting with yoga. This is true especially with the fact that the yoga industry keeps on growing. And if you don’t know what you are looking for, it is easy to get lost and feel overwhelmed with all the choices available.

So to help you sort things out, let us clear one thing in the way and that’s the type of clothing you should be wearing.


It goes without the saying that majority of the yoga studios need you to wear something comfortable and appropriate to the class. However, you don’t necessarily need to buy printed yoga pants or even designer gears.

Breathable apparel will do and some mid-level basics for whatever you may be missing.

Shorts or Pants

You will never go wrong with a pair of solid colored yoga pants that come in navy, brown, grey or black. You can also mix and match your tights with the tops you have. And if you bought some that has good quality, it will definitely last a long time.

For guys though, shorts are quite popular and they are good for women as well. Though, you might consider wearing form-fitting spandex shorts or perhaps looser shorts with connected tights underneath.
