We do not want any uncomfortable clothing to come through as an obstacle during our yoga practice. Yoga demands concentration and if a fabric bothers us and makes us uncomfortable then we might feel the urge to end our practice right away. I believe that if a pair of yoga pants can be comfortably worn around the house then they definitely pass the comfort test for yoga practice as yoga is all about relaxation. I have tried variety of pants in my 15 years of yoga practice, but personally these are my four best brands that can beat any other in style and comfort.

  1. Thanks for the review on yoga pants! I agree comfort is key! Personally I tend to lean towards Lululemon’s pants. Although they are more expensive, I find they last longer than other brands. So I may spend more upfront, but I am making an investment that will last for years.

    1. Hello Loresa, Yes no doubt they are expensive but they last long and offer so many great features. It is only advisable to spend on such expensive wear if you are going to be using them a lot and if you are not like me who gets bored of wearing same clothes and then wants to get rid of them. So in my case lasting longer is not a good option:).

  2. Ramandeep, I enjoyed reading your reviews on the 4 Best Yoga pants.
    It is so important to be comfortable when doing Yoga, or any other exercise, and you have provided a very good description on each of the four items.

    See through clothing does not appeal to me. I prefer my clothing to be non-see through.
    I think my choice is the first item – Reebok Lux Bold High Rise Legging even though it is available in one color only, and doesn’t have any side pockets.

    My second choice, although expensive, is Lululemon High Times Pant Full On Luon 7/8 Yoga Pants as your review says they are perfect for yoga. Also being able to wear them on the street as well as around the house is an advantage and means that, in the long run, anyone who purchases these Yoga pants would get value for their money.

    1. Hello Valerie,
      Thank you so much for your kind words. See through clothing does not appeal to me either as they make me uncomfortable and I do not want to show anything to anyone lol. You definitely have a good taste, my favourite is Reebok as well. I guess that pattern looks good in that one colour only. I would love to buy another pair of Lululemon but they are expensive , though they offer so many wonderful features. Thank you for dropping by.
      Best Regards
      Raman

    1. Hello Juan
      I would love to feature guys clothing and there are many available out there but this website is based on women and that is my focus. But my favourite affordable brands reebok and nike both offer guys yoga pants so you can check them out :). I hope this helps.

      Best Regards
      Raman
