Yoga Wear

Besides hours of intense exercise doing cardio, yoga, aerobics and dance classes, one of my favourite aspects of going to the gym is gym wear. Personally, I am not much of a "sporty" person, but if I am going to do something, I must do it right and get the full gear! Hence I've been looking around for the perfect gym outfit. To be honest, I cannot tell the difference between gym wear and yoga wear (please tell if you know), but since the yoga wears always seem prettier, I am going to focus on that

Yoga wear is just always sooo pretty and matching! Like these two sets here from Running Bare- everything is perfectly coordinated down to the color of the stripe on her pants!And here is a little something from Nike. Light purple on dark purple.

It even comes with a matching mat. Just puuuuurfect! I was going to buy this set actually, but alas, it was on sale and all the sizes have ran out at the shop

For something a little less coordinated but just as matching, there is this charming set from the Adidas Adilibria collection. I just love the soft colors of this set, its so tranquil and feminine.
A little bolder, we have this set I put together from Puma. . . . . . which matches perfectly with this burgundy Puma wrap! I can totally see someone wearing this at the gym cafe to keep warm after they've cooled down, while they catch up with friends.

This definitely makes me want to join a gym!

That puma wrap counts as streetwear, it's so cute!
I think the difference in yogawear is that it's made with more stretchy, breathable material. Also, while it's ok to wear loose clothing to the gym, it would be best to wear tighter clothing for yoga, since you will be bending a lot, and would want your outfit to hug your body.

I think the difference is Yoga gear is more flexible for movement. Workout gear has more support, in the chest area and in possible in the knee area, etc...

Love the outfits...The most exciting part about workingout is the outfit...

Sorry I don't know where you are located, but fashion knows no boundaries anyway!! This is my favourite favourite store for workout clothes: www.lululemon.com

I am a complete nutso when it comes to working out, and all my clothes MUST match!! This tends to be a little hard to do when I go for yoga 3 times a week and run twice a week...So I have almost the complete Lululemon collection!

They're so comfy and pretty, and fabulous colours as well...

Yes, definitely check out lululemon! They are a complete craze here in Canada, and they make the absolutely best workout/yoga wear. Plus their pants make your butt look amazing! Never hurts!

On your recommendation I went to the Nike store and checked out their yoga wear. The pants you suggested (thought they only had grey and dark purple in the store) were AWESOME. Very flattering, and the first 3/4 pants that I think look nice on me.

Thanks for the tip!!

I love that yoga wear has been growing in popularity because it can be so pretty and comfy. I found a new line that takes that comfy look and adds a little sass.

I have very sensitive skin, so for me organic
cotton yoga pants
are the only ones that do not cause
problems. Another plus is they are better on the environment.

Ayurveda is a holistic healing science which comprises of two words, Ayu and Veda. Ayu means life and Veda means knowledge or science. So the literal meaning of the word Ayurveda is the science of life. Ayurveda is a science dealing not only with treatment of some diseases but is a complete way of life. Read More
"Ayurveda treats not just the ailment but the whole person and emphasizes prevention of disease to avoid the need for cure."
Ayurvedic Medicine has become an increasingly accepted alternative medical treatment in America during the last two decades.
Benefits of Ayurvedic Medicines
* By using ayurvedic and herbal medicines you ensure physical and mental health without side effects. The natural ingredients of herbs help bring “arogya” to human body and mind. ("Arogya" means free from diseases). The chemicals used in preparing allopathy medicines have impact on mind as well. One should have allopathy medicine only when it is very necessary.
* According to the original texts, the goal of Ayurveda is prevention as well as promotion of the body’s own capacity for maintenance and balance.
* Ayurvedic treatment is non-invasive and non-toxic, so it can be used safely as an alternative therapy or alongside conventional therapies.
* Ayurvedic physicians claim that their methods can also help stress-related, metabolic, and chronic conditions.
* Ayurveda has been used to treat acne, allergies, asthma, anxiety, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, colitis, constipation, depression, diabetes, flu, heart disease, hypertension, immune problems, inflammation, insomnia, nervous disorders, obesity, skin problems, and ulcers.


Ayurvedic Terms Explained

Dosha: In Ayurvedic philosophy, the five elements combine in pairs to form three dynamic forces or interactions called doshas. It is also known as the governing principles as every living things in nature is characterized by the dosha.

Ayurvedic Facial: Purportedly, a "therapeutic skin care experience" that involves the use of "dosha-specific" products and a facial massage focusing on "marma points."

Ayurvedic Nutrition (Ayurvedic Diet): Nutritional phase of Ayurveda. It involves eating according to (a) one's "body type" and (b) the "season." The alleged activity of the doshas--three "bodily humors," "dynamic forces," or "spirits that possess"--determines one's "body type." In Ayurveda, "body types" number seven, eight, or ten, and "seasons" traditionally number six. Each two-month season corresponds to a dosha; for example, the two seasons that correspond to the dosha named "Pitta" (see "Raktamoksha") constitute the period of mid-March through mid-July. But some proponents enumerate three seasons: summer (when pitta predominates), autumn, and winter (the season of kapha); or Vata season (fall and winter), Kapha season (spring), and Pitta season (summer). According to Ayurvedic theory, one should lessen one's intake of foods that increase ("aggravate") the ascendant dosha.
