How to Dress A Yogi

Dressing a female yogi for cool weather

No doubt you have been wondering how to dress a female yogi for cool weather. There are several things we must consider when addressing this topic.

Important considerations when dressing a female yogi:

  • The clothes must be comfortable and non-binding.
  • The clothing must be warm enough, but not too warm.
  • Layering is essential for maintaining comfort.
  • She needs to look good.

Now that we have established those essential facts, we can set about clothing the yogi. We will divide our search into yoga tops and yoga bottoms.

Yoga Tops

Since we want our yogi to be warm, comfortable and capable of doing good yoga we will use the classic method of layering. Layering one article of clothing over another can offer warmth without resorting to heavy and restrictive tops. More importantly, layering will allow our yogi to remove the items in descending order in order to regulate her temperature during class. Those yogis who forget to layer often end up too cold or too hot at different times during the yoga class. We don't want this for our yogi.

A tank top makes a good base layer. This added insulation will keep our yogi warm when the weather gets really cold. It will also allow her to feel comfortable in a Tshirt once she warms up and removes her outer longsleeve layer. If she gets really warm she can even wear just the tank. Many come with built in shelf bras for added support.

A Tshirts works great as a second layer. Our yogi can be in short sleeves when she gets warmed up from her workout. A fitted Tshirt may work better when wearing multiple layers. Layered this Tshirt over the tank and under a long sleeve top she will have the perfect clothing for cooler weather.

A hoodie will work great as an outer layer. This hoodie is excellent because the lightweight burnout fabric provides just enough warmth without being too warm. The V neck makes it easy to layer over another shirt to make it even warmer. The long length is very flattering over yoga pants.

Yoga Bottoms

Now that we have our yogi's tops all sorted out we need to think about what yoga bottoms would work well. Much of this will depend on our yogi's preferences but three ideas work well in cold weather. Long leggings, long loose pants or capri length leggings.

Yoga leggings come in a few basic styles. Long or capri length and either fitted at the ankle, boot cut or loose fit. All of these styles will work just fine for our yogi. If she tends to get cold, the longer lengths are probably the better option.
