It took me 3 classes (over a few years) to finally fall in love with Yoga, and I have been addicted ever since. Unfortunately, I have been moving around the past 6 years from college, to Philly, to NYC and was unable to keep a steady practice at a studio I loved. When I finally got back into Yoga last Spring I found myself lusting after some cute exercise attire. White Hanes v-neck tee's and leggings were just not going to cut it at my NY studio's, Sonic Yoga and Bikram Yoga NYC. I have put together the outfits below with some pieces that I am currently craving.

For Bikram yoga it is best to be as uncovered as possible because you will be sweating from every inch of your body. I love the true athletic feeling from the outfit above. A tiny bralette and short shorts are perfect for all 26 poses if you are confident enough to rock a skimpy outfit ( I am not, yet). For after class you will want to put on a jacket that won't absorb moisture, so it is best to have a synthetic piece that can wick away sweat during your trek home from the studio.
