International Yoga Day: Cool gear to get you started
Keen on starting a yoga routine this World Yoga Day? Here's some cool gear to get you started
If you hate doing yoga with bare feet, opt for toe-less ballet-type footwear styles made by leading sports brands. These offer a meshed top layer for added support and silicon traction patterns for enhanced grip.
Opt for tights made from smooth and supportive polyester elastane. Mesh panels do a great job in cooling you post a sweaty session.

- Stretch and bend while trying outfits; it might look and fit nice but things often go awry when you are upside down or bending.
- Invest in a good sports bra that offers support and keeps your mind off possible wardrobe malfunctions.
- Not all tights work for yoga. Need to choose a fabric that helps absorb your sweat quickly and lets your skin breathe.
- Do not wear very loose clothes as they will get in the way of the asana and even bunch up, causing discomfort.
- Pick a yoga mat based on the type of yoga you practise since the thickness of the mat may be a hurdle for some asanas.
- The thickness of your mat should depend on your weight.
- If you are using a borrowed yoga mat, carry a mat towel to maintain hygiene.
