Tip Tuesday is a weekly feature where I offer a few yoga tips that have worked for me in the hopes that they can help you too.
Tie-dye yoga pants are a bit of a Forrest Yoga thing. You can usually tell the Forrest Yoga teacher by the Grateful Dead-esque leggings in bright colors.
I know, I know, I am probably contributing to the trend of yoga commercialism in our consumer culture by even writing this post. However, who says that fun clothes don’t have a place in yoga? In the same way it might feel exciting to show up to a party in a new dress, it can feel great showing up to the yoga mat in a pair of flashy duds.
So where does one buy tie-dyed yoga pants? A few options you might try:
1. Wildflower Tie Dye These are the some of the most inexpensively priced tie-dye creations that I’ve run across. They come in a variety of colors and tie-dye designs. From looking at their sizes online, I could not tell if they had a size that would be small enough to fit me, but when I tried on a pair in a local yoga studio, they fit like a glove. Taller yogis have also given Wildflower a big thumbs up.
2. Shining Shakti Definitely a pricier option. Their styles and colors are terrific though, and you can feel good that their pants are made from organic cotton. Plus, how cute are their baby shakti clothes?
3. Happy Tie-Dye Who knew an eBay store would be the source of a beloved pair of yoga pants that I continually receive compliments on? Happy Tie-Dye has great prices. You won’t necessarily find the style you want in your size, but it does mean when you find the combination that works for you, you’re likely to have a unique pair of yoga pants.
If you have another place where you’ve found snazzy tie-dyed yoga wear, let me know!
