The smart yogi
  • 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.
