Do you wear shoes for yoga

Beginner’s Guide To Yoga – What to Wear

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:03,720
hello everyone my name is Nisha and I am

2
00:00:03,720 –> 00:00:06,060
the yogic amnesiac I’m thinking about

3
00:00:06,060 –> 00:00:07,680
starting a series kind of like a

4
00:00:07,680 –> 00:00:09,929
beginner’s guide to yoga I guess that’s

5
00:00:09,929 –> 00:00:11,849
what we’ll even call it pretty much just

6
00:00:11,849 –> 00:00:14,190
giving advice on things that seem really

7
00:00:14,190 –> 00:00:16,650
basic but might be confusing people who

8
00:00:16,650 –> 00:00:18,630
are complete beginners or maybe you just

9
00:00:18,630 –> 00:00:20,789
never managed to figure it out so that’s

10
00:00:20,789 –> 00:00:22,650
what we’re going to start with today and

11
00:00:22,650 –> 00:00:24,210
we’re going to kick it off if you guys

12
00:00:24,210 –> 00:00:25,590
like it we can turn it into a series

13
00:00:25,590 –> 00:00:28,170
we’ll see how it goes in this video

14
00:00:28,170 –> 00:00:29,939
we’re going to talk about what to wear

15
00:00:29,939 –> 00:00:31,710
in a yoga class we’re going to cover

16
00:00:31,710 –> 00:00:35,399
pants tops socks I guess even we could

17
00:00:35,399 –> 00:00:37,710
talk about a little bit I know some of

18
00:00:37,710 –> 00:00:39,270
it seems really obvious but it’s

19
00:00:39,270 –> 00:00:41,100
possible that maybe these are points

20
00:00:41,100 –> 00:00:42,450
you’ve never thought of or you never

21
00:00:42,450 –> 00:00:44,660
realized that something is better than

22
00:00:44,660 –> 00:00:46,890
another option that you’ve been wearing

23
00:00:46,890 –> 00:00:49,469
or maybe you realize now that yeah I am

24
00:00:49,469 –> 00:00:51,360
wearing the right option so it’s really

25
00:00:51,360 –> 00:00:53,070
just to figure out if you’re on the

26
00:00:53,070 –> 00:00:54,210
right track if you think you’re on the

27
00:00:54,210 –> 00:00:56,489
right track and you know you’re doing

28
00:00:56,489 –> 00:00:58,770
okay before we get started one last

29
00:00:58,770 –> 00:01:01,050
thing if you have any requests or

30
00:01:01,050 –> 00:01:03,239
questions or comments and you want to

31
00:01:03,239 –> 00:01:05,369
see me do a video about it if it’s a

32
00:01:05,369 –> 00:01:07,020
routine or a talk it doesn’t matter

33
00:01:07,020 –> 00:01:09,479
leave it down in the comments below you

34
00:01:09,479 –> 00:01:10,740
can ask me about it if it’s really

35
00:01:10,740 –> 00:01:12,689
simple like you just need a question

36
00:01:12,689 –> 00:01:14,189
answered I can just answer it down there

37
00:01:14,189 –> 00:01:16,560
but if it’s an idea for a video please

38
00:01:16,560 –> 00:01:18,600
leave it there I’m totally interested in

39
00:01:18,600 –> 00:01:20,670
taking requests I have a ton of ideas

40
00:01:20,670 –> 00:01:22,890
but I want to do things that you guys

41
00:01:22,890 –> 00:01:25,140
want to see first and foremost

42
00:01:25,140 –> 00:01:27,960
so leave those down below and I will try

43
00:01:27,960 –> 00:01:29,130
to do them I’ll see if people are

44
00:01:29,130 –> 00:01:30,960
interested what I think and if I can

45
00:01:30,960 –> 00:01:35,390
advise you on that so I think that’s it

46
00:01:35,390 –> 00:01:39,360
I’m going to try to advise as many body

47
00:01:39,360 –> 00:01:42,180
types genders as I can as many different

48
00:01:42,180 –> 00:01:44,820
people obviously I am a woman and I’m

49
00:01:44,820 –> 00:01:47,340
pretty skinny so I do fall into a

50
00:01:47,340 –> 00:01:50,009
certain category but I can do my best to

51
00:01:50,009 –> 00:01:52,140
advise as many people as I can if I

52
00:01:52,140 –> 00:01:53,970
don’t answer your question or you’re

53
00:01:53,970 –> 00:01:55,619
concerned about your body type or

54
00:01:55,619 –> 00:01:57,360
something like that leave a question

55
00:01:57,360 –> 00:01:59,520
down below and I’ll answer it there I

56
00:01:59,520 –> 00:02:01,170
may have just forgotten to address

57
00:02:01,170 –> 00:02:04,200
something that happens but I promise

58
00:02:04,200 –> 00:02:05,579
I’ll answer it down there if I don’t

59
00:02:05,579 –> 00:02:08,450
cover it in this video

60
00:02:10,229 –> 00:02:13,540
so let’s start with Sox vs. no Sox

61
00:02:13,540 –> 00:02:16,300
versus those weird yoga footie things

62
00:02:16,300 –> 00:02:19,060
that people make so those yoga sock

63
00:02:19,060 –> 00:02:21,070
things I’ve never actually used them

64
00:02:21,070 –> 00:02:23,320
before I would suggest you look up

65
00:02:23,320 –> 00:02:25,090
reviews and stuff like that I’ve never

66
00:02:25,090 –> 00:02:27,670
seen someone who absolutely needed to

67
00:02:27,670 –> 00:02:29,770
use them though so maybe try your other

68
00:02:29,770 –> 00:02:31,840
options first where you jump to those

69
00:02:31,840 –> 00:02:33,790
because I think they charge you a little

70
00:02:33,790 –> 00:02:35,380
bit more than an average pair of socks

71
00:02:35,380 –> 00:02:36,910
would be charged and your feet will

72
00:02:36,910 –> 00:02:39,640
probably warm up during practice so

73
00:02:39,640 –> 00:02:41,740
wearing socks is a little bit more

74
00:02:41,740 –> 00:02:43,239
dangerous you’re putting yourself at

75
00:02:43,239 –> 00:02:46,390
higher risk of falling I would recommend

76
00:02:46,390 –> 00:02:48,250
you just go barefoot instead if your

77
00:02:48,250 –> 00:02:49,510
feet are really cold and you feel

78
00:02:49,510 –> 00:02:51,250
confident and comfortable and you’re

79
00:02:51,250 –> 00:02:53,050
aware that it could be more slippery

80
00:02:53,050 –> 00:02:55,120
then it’s fine especially if you’re

81
00:02:55,120 –> 00:02:57,370
using a mat that will help you know add

82
00:02:57,370 –> 00:02:59,170
a little bit of traction if you’re just

83
00:02:59,170 –> 00:03:01,600
on a wood floor please do not practice

84
00:03:01,600 –> 00:03:03,670
yoga in socks you are just asking to

85
00:03:03,670 –> 00:03:05,200
fall on your face and that would be so

86
00:03:05,200 –> 00:03:06,040
bad

87
00:03:06,040 –> 00:03:08,739
like I said barefoot is the best option

88
00:03:08,739 –> 00:03:10,390
if you’re self-conscious of your feet

89
00:03:10,390 –> 00:03:12,550
don’t worry I promise no one’s looking

90
00:03:12,550 –> 00:03:14,920
at your feet or judging your feet um

91
00:03:14,920 –> 00:03:17,500
really I was really self-conscious about

92
00:03:17,500 –> 00:03:19,540
my feet and I learned to just ignore it

93
00:03:19,540 –> 00:03:22,290
no one care if they really don’t care

94
00:03:22,290 –> 00:03:25,660
next let’s talk about pants I’m going to

95
00:03:25,660 –> 00:03:28,000
preface this with do not wear jeans I

96
00:03:28,000 –> 00:03:29,680
don’t care how stretchy they are do not

97
00:03:29,680 –> 00:03:31,600
wear jeans it will be so uncomfortable

98
00:03:31,600 –> 00:03:34,000
that is the only article of clothing

99
00:03:34,000 –> 00:03:36,250
I’ll probably say do not wear except for

100
00:03:36,250 –> 00:03:39,420
like a skirt and so don’t wear jeans

101
00:03:39,420 –> 00:03:41,650
even if they’re that super stretchy

102
00:03:41,650 –> 00:03:44,950
material this goes for anyone any body

103
00:03:44,950 –> 00:03:47,590
type any gender genes are a bad idea

104
00:03:47,590 –> 00:03:50,769
same with skirts or kilts and kilts

105
00:03:50,769 –> 00:03:52,030
traditionally you don’t even wear

106
00:03:52,030 –> 00:03:53,470
something under it so if you’re going to

107
00:03:53,470 –> 00:03:56,410
class maybe don’t do that I guess if

108
00:03:56,410 –> 00:03:57,700
you’re at home and you’re alone you

109
00:03:57,700 –> 00:04:00,310
could wear a kilt or skirt or something

110
00:04:00,310 –> 00:04:01,810
like that just wrap cloth around your

111
00:04:01,810 –> 00:04:03,730
waist even if you want it you can wear

112
00:04:03,730 –> 00:04:04,900
whatever you want if you’re at home

113
00:04:04,900 –> 00:04:08,769
really but in a class setting skirts are

114
00:04:08,769 –> 00:04:10,120
a very bad idea

115
00:04:10,120 –> 00:04:12,730
so this first pair I’m talking about is

116
00:04:12,730 –> 00:04:15,940
a cotton yoga pant the really common at

117
00:04:15,940 –> 00:04:17,858
places like Victoria’s Secret but you

118
00:04:17,858 –> 00:04:20,228
can get them just about anywhere they’re

119
00:04:20,228 –> 00:04:21,880
pretty cute they’re really comfortable

120
00:04:21,880 –> 00:04:23,130
they’re a little bit

121
00:04:23,130 –> 00:04:25,950
juice but they move really nicely the

122
00:04:25,950 –> 00:04:28,080
bottoms can actually flap up if you put

123
00:04:28,080 –> 00:04:30,270
your feet up in the air so if you don’t

124
00:04:30,270 –> 00:04:32,370
want to show off your calves or ankles

125
00:04:32,370 –> 00:04:35,760
then avoid them teachers like to be able

126
00:04:35,760 –> 00:04:38,220
to see your knees and feet is the other

127
00:04:38,220 –> 00:04:40,320
thing and if these are really covering

128
00:04:40,320 –> 00:04:42,990
those body parts then you might not want

129
00:04:42,990 –> 00:04:45,390
to wear it to a class I’ve also seen

130
00:04:45,390 –> 00:04:47,460
people wear really long ones they’ll

131
00:04:47,460 –> 00:04:49,230
drag on the ground or they’ll get you

132
00:04:49,230 –> 00:04:50,760
know under your heels under your feet

133
00:04:50,760 –> 00:04:52,350
that’s a really good way to trip and

134
00:04:52,350 –> 00:04:54,180
fall this is a big reason I actually

135
00:04:54,180 –> 00:04:56,010
suggest you don’t wear this style of

136
00:04:56,010 –> 00:04:58,200
pants it’s really easy to step on it or

137
00:04:58,200 –> 00:04:59,820
your right foot will step on the left

138
00:04:59,820 –> 00:05:01,680
leg and next thing you know your pants

139
00:05:01,680 –> 00:05:04,950
are around your ankles but I think apart

140
00:05:04,950 –> 00:05:06,390
from that they’re super comfortable and

141
00:05:06,390 –> 00:05:07,710
there’s nothing wrong with them so long

142
00:05:07,710 –> 00:05:09,540
as you can move and all that kind of

143
00:05:09,540 –> 00:05:09,810
stuff

144
00:05:09,810 –> 00:05:12,870
this next pair I have is exactly the

145
00:05:12,870 –> 00:05:15,060
same yoga pant cut it’s a little bit

146
00:05:15,060 –> 00:05:16,740
higher waisted and if that’s

147
00:05:16,740 –> 00:05:18,420
uncomfortable you can always roll the

148
00:05:18,420 –> 00:05:20,640
waist down which is what I usually do

149
00:05:20,640 –> 00:05:23,130
it’s made out of a really nice material

150
00:05:23,130 –> 00:05:25,920
though I can’t tell you what the

151
00:05:25,920 –> 00:05:28,290
material is I the labels completely

152
00:05:28,290 –> 00:05:30,510
rubbed off I can’t read it anymore but

153
00:05:30,510 –> 00:05:32,940
it’s this really synthetic spandex sort

154
00:05:32,940 –> 00:05:34,740
of thing and it’s really stretchy it’s

155
00:05:34,740 –> 00:05:36,180
super comfortable it hugs your body

156
00:05:36,180 –> 00:05:38,760
really nicely and it breathes really

157
00:05:38,760 –> 00:05:41,970
well and if you sweat it will dry cotton

158
00:05:41,970 –> 00:05:44,190
yoga pants don’t breathe as nicely as

159
00:05:44,190 –> 00:05:45,870
them well they could breathe just fine

160
00:05:45,870 –> 00:05:48,030
but they don’t dry I’ve literally

161
00:05:48,030 –> 00:05:50,190
spilled water on these pants and it’ll

162
00:05:50,190 –> 00:05:53,520
dry so fast so if you sweat a lot look

163
00:05:53,520 –> 00:05:55,860
into this type of material I really wish

164
00:05:55,860 –> 00:05:57,960
I could tell you what it is maybe I’ll

165
00:05:57,960 –> 00:06:00,270
do some research and I will put it in

166
00:06:00,270 –> 00:06:01,920
somewhere over here or in the

167
00:06:01,920 –> 00:06:03,990
description down below next up is

168
00:06:03,990 –> 00:06:07,110
leggings leggings are my favorite and I

169
00:06:07,110 –> 00:06:08,490
feel like right now they’re the most

170
00:06:08,490 –> 00:06:10,830
popular it used to be that bootcut yoga

171
00:06:10,830 –> 00:06:12,270
pant that we talked about just before

172
00:06:12,270 –> 00:06:14,280
but now it seems like a lot of people

173
00:06:14,280 –> 00:06:16,020
wearing leggings and they are by far the

174
00:06:16,020 –> 00:06:18,510
best that I’ve found to wear for yoga

175
00:06:18,510 –> 00:06:20,820
leggings are really fun too they come in

176
00:06:20,820 –> 00:06:23,490
all sorts of really cool patterns I love

177
00:06:23,490 –> 00:06:25,050
them I have a bunch and I’m sure if

178
00:06:25,050 –> 00:06:26,460
you’ve seen my videos you’ve seen that I

179
00:06:26,460 –> 00:06:28,860
have a bunch they’re really nice for

180
00:06:28,860 –> 00:06:30,900
yoga instructors too we can see your

181
00:06:30,900 –> 00:06:32,790
body we can see how you’re moving and we

182
00:06:32,790 –> 00:06:34,800
can make sure your alignment is right if

183
00:06:34,800 –> 00:06:35,610
you’re wearing something

184
00:06:35,610 –> 00:06:37,259
loose it makes it hard to see that but

185
00:06:37,259 –> 00:06:39,120
this is perfect for that because you can

186
00:06:39,120 –> 00:06:41,580
move their stretchy you’re not going to

187
00:06:41,580 –> 00:06:43,919
step on them and if you do have the kind

188
00:06:43,919 –> 00:06:45,389
that goes under your feet you’re still

189
00:06:45,389 –> 00:06:47,129
not going to trip and fall your pants

190
00:06:47,129 –> 00:06:48,599
aren’t going to fall off one thing

191
00:06:48,599 –> 00:06:51,120
that’s really weird is that leggings can

192
00:06:51,120 –> 00:06:53,759
be ridiculously high-waisted my favorite

193
00:06:53,759 –> 00:06:55,620
pair go above my belly button to the

194
00:06:55,620 –> 00:06:58,319
small of my waist so next we’re also

195
00:06:58,319 –> 00:07:00,300
talking about short leggings as opposed

196
00:07:00,300 –> 00:07:02,729
to just the long ones these go about

197
00:07:02,729 –> 00:07:05,009
half way at my calf as you can see

198
00:07:05,009 –> 00:07:07,169
they’re also super high waisted I just

199
00:07:07,169 –> 00:07:08,759
have them in black but I have two pairs

200
00:07:08,759 –> 00:07:10,289
like the cotton and the one that’s

201
00:07:10,289 –> 00:07:11,879
really breathable and dries and it was

202
00:07:11,879 –> 00:07:13,680
made out of that super synthetic

203
00:07:13,680 –> 00:07:15,629
material if you’re on the shorter side

204
00:07:15,629 –> 00:07:17,699
and you find that long leggings get

205
00:07:17,699 –> 00:07:18,990
under your feet or they’re uncomfortable

206
00:07:18,990 –> 00:07:21,719
then these can be nice because they

207
00:07:21,719 –> 00:07:22,919
definitely won’t be getting under your

208
00:07:22,919 –> 00:07:24,900
feet or bunching up at your ankles so

209
00:07:24,900 –> 00:07:26,969
just be nice and short and you can you

210
00:07:26,969 –> 00:07:28,319
know pull them up a little higher if you

211
00:07:28,319 –> 00:07:31,020
need to or anything like that this is a

212
00:07:31,020 –> 00:07:32,610
really good time to mention that men’s

213
00:07:32,610 –> 00:07:35,009
sections and stores where they sell

214
00:07:35,009 –> 00:07:37,740
sports wear will also sell leggings and

215
00:07:37,740 –> 00:07:39,449
stuff like that usually they’re made out

216
00:07:39,449 –> 00:07:41,159
of more of that synthetic material

217
00:07:41,159 –> 00:07:43,199
because women will tend to wear cotton

218
00:07:43,199 –> 00:07:45,509
ones just for fun and men only wear them

219
00:07:45,509 –> 00:07:47,460
for working out but no matter who you

220
00:07:47,460 –> 00:07:49,020
are there are leggings for you they will

221
00:07:49,020 –> 00:07:51,240
fit your body I see a lot of people with

222
00:07:51,240 –> 00:07:53,639
bigger bodies wear leggings and they

223
00:07:53,639 –> 00:07:56,099
work really well for them too a big

224
00:07:56,099 –> 00:07:58,409
problem with the traditional yoga pants

225
00:07:58,409 –> 00:08:00,900
is they only come in places where they

226
00:08:00,900 –> 00:08:03,300
have a women’s section so if you would

227
00:08:03,300 –> 00:08:04,830
like to wear those but you’re not a

228
00:08:04,830 –> 00:08:07,229
woman it can be hard to find or you

229
00:08:07,229 –> 00:08:08,939
might feel uncomfortable buying them or

230
00:08:08,939 –> 00:08:11,639
they might not fit you properly next up

231
00:08:11,639 –> 00:08:14,279
is these baggy er sweatpants these come

232
00:08:14,279 –> 00:08:16,110
in so many different styles but this is

233
00:08:16,110 –> 00:08:17,789
the only style I have they’re just

234
00:08:17,789 –> 00:08:20,279
cotton they’re super thin they’re really

235
00:08:20,279 –> 00:08:22,289
comfortable really easy to move in I

236
00:08:22,289 –> 00:08:24,060
like to pull them up to have them right

237
00:08:24,060 –> 00:08:25,620
below my knees I don’t like them hanging

238
00:08:25,620 –> 00:08:27,689
down around my ankles they’re a little

239
00:08:27,689 –> 00:08:30,000
bit loose so in a class that yoga

240
00:08:30,000 –> 00:08:31,500
instructor might not be able to see your

241
00:08:31,500 –> 00:08:33,539
knees or your feet very well especially

242
00:08:33,539 –> 00:08:35,250
if you have those super big ones that

243
00:08:35,250 –> 00:08:37,229
just go straight down and don’t bunch in

244
00:08:37,229 –> 00:08:39,299
at the ankles those can be harder to

245
00:08:39,299 –> 00:08:40,708
wear and you’re more likely to step on

246
00:08:40,708 –> 00:08:42,659
them but you can wear them and they work

247
00:08:42,659 –> 00:08:45,360
totally fine they also make sweatpants

248
00:08:45,360 –> 00:08:47,020
like this or men and in men

249
00:08:47,020 –> 00:08:48,880
sections so this is another option that

250
00:08:48,880 –> 00:08:50,680
if you are male you can totally wear

251
00:08:50,680 –> 00:08:52,840
these to a yoga class and be super

252
00:08:52,840 –> 00:08:54,850
comfortable they also won’t flop around

253
00:08:54,850 –> 00:08:56,770
if they’re bunched up at the ankles and

254
00:08:56,770 –> 00:08:58,570
you know you won’t be exposing your

255
00:08:58,570 –> 00:09:01,300
entire thigh to the whole class if you

256
00:09:01,300 –> 00:09:02,700
care about that kind of thing

257
00:09:02,700 –> 00:09:06,940
next pajamas you can absolutely wear

258
00:09:06,940 –> 00:09:09,220
pajama pants please don’t want a footy

259
00:09:09,220 –> 00:09:11,110
pajamas those won’t work very well you

260
00:09:11,110 –> 00:09:12,910
won’t be able to move and I can tell you

261
00:09:12,910 –> 00:09:15,550
this because I have hoodie pajamas I’m a

262
00:09:15,550 –> 00:09:17,620
big fan of flannel pajama pants

263
00:09:17,620 –> 00:09:19,750
unfortunately they do get very hot and

264
00:09:19,750 –> 00:09:21,760
you are putting yourself at risk to step

265
00:09:21,760 –> 00:09:24,730
on the bottoms of the legs I find that

266
00:09:24,730 –> 00:09:26,680
the bunching around the waist can dig

267
00:09:26,680 –> 00:09:28,870
into my hip bones in the front but they

268
00:09:28,870 –> 00:09:32,080
make pajama pants for literally everyone

269
00:09:32,080 –> 00:09:33,970
no matter who you are I’m sure you can

270
00:09:33,970 –> 00:09:36,700
find pajama pants of some kind that

271
00:09:36,700 –> 00:09:38,320
would work for you so if you’re really

272
00:09:38,320 –> 00:09:39,820
struggling or you really don’t know to

273
00:09:39,820 –> 00:09:42,220
where you can totally wear pajama pants

274
00:09:42,220 –> 00:09:44,320
just make sure they’re loose and they

275
00:09:44,320 –> 00:09:46,290
fit well and you can move around easily

276
00:09:46,290 –> 00:09:49,060
spandex shorts if you’re going to be

277
00:09:49,060 –> 00:09:51,070
doing Bikram yoga also none of the hot

278
00:09:51,070 –> 00:09:54,490
yoga spandex shorts are your friend they

279
00:09:54,490 –> 00:09:55,870
really encourage you wear things like

280
00:09:55,870 –> 00:09:58,240
that there’s not really a guideline for

281
00:09:58,240 –> 00:10:00,580
being too modest there just because you

282
00:10:00,580 –> 00:10:02,590
are going to be in a very hot room and

283
00:10:02,590 –> 00:10:04,150
your body needs to be able to breathe

284
00:10:04,150 –> 00:10:07,000
that being said most yoga studios should

285
00:10:07,000 –> 00:10:08,860
be okay with you wearing spandex shorts

286
00:10:08,860 –> 00:10:11,080
there they can’t be kind of short so

287
00:10:11,080 –> 00:10:13,210
it’s up to your comfort and your

288
00:10:13,210 –> 00:10:15,370
personal yoga studio though I doubt

289
00:10:15,370 –> 00:10:16,840
they’ll ever kick you out for wearing

290
00:10:16,840 –> 00:10:19,720
spandex shorts spandex shorts are also

291
00:10:19,720 –> 00:10:21,790
just great if you get really hot or

292
00:10:21,790 –> 00:10:24,340
anything like that I do find that you

293
00:10:24,340 –> 00:10:25,780
have to be more comfortable with your

294
00:10:25,780 –> 00:10:28,150
body and comfortable with exposing skin

295
00:10:28,150 –> 00:10:30,100
but if you’re at home alone then there’s

296
00:10:30,100 –> 00:10:32,200
absolutely no reason you cannot wear

297
00:10:32,200 –> 00:10:34,810
spandex shorts speaking of being home

298
00:10:34,810 –> 00:10:38,260
alone you can do yoga naked there is no

299
00:10:38,260 –> 00:10:40,690
reason you cannot do yoga naked as long

300
00:10:40,690 –> 00:10:43,300
as you’re in your own home most studios

301
00:10:43,300 –> 00:10:45,250
will not allow you to be make it in them

302
00:10:45,250 –> 00:10:47,350
although I have heard of people doing

303
00:10:47,350 –> 00:10:49,960
yoga naked before I think at nudist

304
00:10:49,960 –> 00:10:52,000
places they might do yoga make it and

305
00:10:52,000 –> 00:10:52,390
I’ve done

306
00:10:52,390 –> 00:10:53,740
only heard of programs where they’re all

307
00:10:53,740 –> 00:10:56,110
about naked yoga so it exists and if you

308
00:10:56,110 –> 00:10:58,000
are absolutely about embracing your body

309
00:10:58,000 –> 00:11:00,760
and just being naked then that is

310
00:11:00,760 –> 00:11:03,160
actually an option for you I just

311
00:11:03,160 –> 00:11:04,960
noticed I was sitting on my pants right

312
00:11:04,960 –> 00:11:07,090
here and you guys probably saw all of

313
00:11:07,090 –> 00:11:09,610
them I’m literally doing this list in

314
00:11:09,610 –> 00:11:12,100
one shot and obviously recording myself

315
00:11:12,100 –> 00:11:13,690
at a separate time but I have to make

316
00:11:13,690 –> 00:11:16,180
sure I get the order right usually sold

317
00:11:16,180 –> 00:11:18,400
in men’s sections there’s also really

318
00:11:18,400 –> 00:11:20,500
loose shorts like basketball shorts

319
00:11:20,500 –> 00:11:23,020
that’s also an option keep in mind they

320
00:11:23,020 –> 00:11:25,090
do flop around they like to go up and

321
00:11:25,090 –> 00:11:27,550
expose your entire thigh it would be

322
00:11:27,550 –> 00:11:29,350
advisable to wear something under it

323
00:11:29,350 –> 00:11:31,330
like spandex shorts or tight underwear

324
00:11:31,330 –> 00:11:35,020
just so that everything doesn’t hang out

325
00:11:35,020 –> 00:11:38,680
and say hello to the world all right

326
00:11:38,680 –> 00:11:41,830
let’s talk about tops the tight-fitting

327
00:11:41,830 –> 00:11:44,110
tank top which I know they sell for

328
00:11:44,110 –> 00:11:47,140
everyone no matter who you are this is a

329
00:11:47,140 –> 00:11:49,240
really good option especially if you’re

330
00:11:49,240 –> 00:11:52,000
hot if you get hot easily you can layer

331
00:11:52,000 –> 00:11:54,880
it really easily too so this is a really

332
00:11:54,880 –> 00:11:57,460
really good option your yoga instructor

333
00:11:57,460 –> 00:11:59,890
can see your body it’s not going to flop

334
00:11:59,890 –> 00:12:01,570
up in your face if you’re in a downward

335
00:12:01,570 –> 00:12:03,750
facing dog or anything like that so

336
00:12:03,750 –> 00:12:06,280
tight-fitting tank tops are a total

337
00:12:06,280 –> 00:12:09,850
recommendation next is a loose-fitting

338
00:12:09,850 –> 00:12:12,070
tank top loose think tank tops are

339
00:12:12,070 –> 00:12:14,290
absolutely an option but they do flop

340
00:12:14,290 –> 00:12:16,300
around it makes it a little bit harder

341
00:12:16,300 –> 00:12:18,250
for yoga instructors to see your body

342
00:12:18,250 –> 00:12:21,070
I’ve seen them come in like so many

343
00:12:21,070 –> 00:12:22,900
different variations though that it

344
00:12:22,900 –> 00:12:24,250
really depends on what kind of

345
00:12:24,250 –> 00:12:26,410
loose-fitting tank top you have the one

346
00:12:26,410 –> 00:12:29,020
I have is very exaggerated the arms are

347
00:12:29,020 –> 00:12:31,840
very low-cut it’s super loose I would

348
00:12:31,840 –> 00:12:33,670
not recommend wearing this to a yoga

349
00:12:33,670 –> 00:12:35,320
class just because you literally are

350
00:12:35,320 –> 00:12:37,530
going to flash the entire class a

351
00:12:37,530 –> 00:12:40,450
tight-fitting t-shirt a t-shirt like

352
00:12:40,450 –> 00:12:41,890
this is just a really good option

353
00:12:41,890 –> 00:12:43,660
because it’s not going to follow up and

354
00:12:43,660 –> 00:12:45,160
it won’t fall out very far you can

355
00:12:45,160 –> 00:12:47,170
always tuck it in you could tuck in any

356
00:12:47,170 –> 00:12:48,670
of these options if you’d like but

357
00:12:48,670 –> 00:12:50,140
sometimes that gets annoying it can

358
00:12:50,140 –> 00:12:51,850
bunch up and you have to keep doing it

359
00:12:51,850 –> 00:12:53,920
and fixing it but a shirt t-shirt like

360
00:12:53,920 –> 00:12:55,660
this should tuck in really really easily

361
00:12:55,660 –> 00:12:57,400
and it should stay for much a good class

362
00:12:57,400 –> 00:13:00,910
next up is a long-sleeve t-shirt same

363
00:13:00,910 –> 00:13:02,770
thing goes for the long sleeve t-shirt

364
00:13:02,770 –> 00:13:04,920
as a short sleeve t-shirt

365
00:13:04,920 –> 00:13:06,930
except for the long sleeves might get in

366
00:13:06,930 –> 00:13:08,190
your way if they’re super long and

367
00:13:08,190 –> 00:13:10,620
floppy or if they’re on your palm you

368
00:13:10,620 –> 00:13:12,839
might not like it that’s kind of up to

369
00:13:12,839 –> 00:13:15,510
your own discretion and pretty much

370
00:13:15,510 –> 00:13:16,860
every single one of these like

371
00:13:16,860 –> 00:13:18,839
tight-fitting shirts also comes in that

372
00:13:18,839 –> 00:13:23,130
super water wicking away material that’s

373
00:13:23,130 –> 00:13:25,550
like spandex or whatever it is a

374
00:13:25,550 –> 00:13:28,410
loose-fitting t-shirt as you can see

375
00:13:28,410 –> 00:13:31,920
this loose-fitting t-shirt is pretty

376
00:13:31,920 –> 00:13:33,720
nice except for the fact that it’s going

377
00:13:33,720 –> 00:13:35,760
to flop around this is pretty common

378
00:13:35,760 –> 00:13:38,160
especially for men or people who like to

379
00:13:38,160 –> 00:13:40,709
wear loose shirts like this it will flop

380
00:13:40,709 –> 00:13:42,329
around so I would recommend you wear

381
00:13:42,329 –> 00:13:44,399
something tighter if you can unless

382
00:13:44,399 –> 00:13:46,350
you’re you don’t care if it flops up a

383
00:13:46,350 –> 00:13:48,209
little bit no one else is going to care

384
00:13:48,209 –> 00:13:50,760
I can assure you if you do like wearing

385
00:13:50,760 –> 00:13:52,680
these types of t-shirts but you like to

386
00:13:52,680 –> 00:13:54,570
tie them up on the side that’s actually

387
00:13:54,570 –> 00:13:56,940
going to be really uncomfortable for you

388
00:13:56,940 –> 00:13:58,320
so I recommend you don’t do that

389
00:13:58,320 –> 00:13:59,670
especially if you left a lie on your

390
00:13:59,670 –> 00:14:02,430
back or sides chances are you will if

391
00:14:02,430 –> 00:14:05,130
you go to a yoga class so don’t really

392
00:14:05,130 –> 00:14:06,510
recommend you do that but there’s

393
00:14:06,510 –> 00:14:08,220
nothing wrong with a loose t-shirt if

394
00:14:08,220 –> 00:14:10,260
you haven’t guessed what I am going to

395
00:14:10,260 –> 00:14:11,250
say about this

396
00:14:11,250 –> 00:14:13,589
there is a serious trend going on with

397
00:14:13,589 –> 00:14:16,440
any loose clothing loose t-shirts do

398
00:14:16,440 –> 00:14:18,240
make it harder again for yoga

399
00:14:18,240 –> 00:14:20,970
instructors to check your alignment but

400
00:14:20,970 –> 00:14:22,260
there’s nothing wrong with it and they

401
00:14:22,260 –> 00:14:23,940
will not get mad at you for wearing one

402
00:14:23,940 –> 00:14:27,180
a long-sleeve jacket this jacket is

403
00:14:27,180 –> 00:14:29,850
actually a sports jacket you can wear it

404
00:14:29,850 –> 00:14:32,850
for exercise or a warm-up jacket it has

405
00:14:32,850 –> 00:14:35,490
no hood though it’s really nice to our

406
00:14:35,490 –> 00:14:37,920
jackets without hoods the only problem

407
00:14:37,920 –> 00:14:40,260
with this jacket is the zippers zippers

408
00:14:40,260 –> 00:14:42,089
can be so annoying when you’re doing

409
00:14:42,089 –> 00:14:43,829
yoga and you need to lie on your front

410
00:14:43,829 –> 00:14:45,930
they will be really uncomfortable

411
00:14:45,930 –> 00:14:48,089
sometimes so keep that in mind if you’re

412
00:14:48,089 –> 00:14:50,160
going to wear a jacket it might not be

413
00:14:50,160 –> 00:14:52,680
advisable to have a zipper but you can

414
00:14:52,680 –> 00:14:54,329
also just try it out and it has a zipper

415
00:14:54,329 –> 00:14:56,550
you can just take it off here’s another

416
00:14:56,550 –> 00:14:58,860
example of a jacket this one has a hood

417
00:14:58,860 –> 00:15:01,620
though and a thicker zipper this one

418
00:15:01,620 –> 00:15:03,389
would not be a very good option for

419
00:15:03,389 –> 00:15:05,819
doing yoga and unless you’re standing I

420
00:15:05,819 –> 00:15:07,949
can move around really easily in this

421
00:15:07,949 –> 00:15:09,990
jacket and you’ll notice the sleeves are

422
00:15:09,990 –> 00:15:11,459
actually kind of short so I don’t have

423
00:15:11,459 –> 00:15:12,690
to worry about them getting in the way

424
00:15:12,690 –> 00:15:14,610
because this one does have a hood the

425
00:15:14,610 –> 00:15:16,270
hood will flop up if I

426
00:15:16,270 –> 00:15:18,160
ever upside down like in downward-facing

427
00:15:18,160 –> 00:15:20,590
dog but apart from that that’s not

428
00:15:20,590 –> 00:15:23,230
really that bad so you can deal with the

429
00:15:23,230 –> 00:15:24,820
zipper and you feel like wearing a

430
00:15:24,820 –> 00:15:27,310
jacket like this go for it another

431
00:15:27,310 –> 00:15:29,590
option for a top is wearing a sports bra

432
00:15:29,590 –> 00:15:31,600
this is another option that’s really

433
00:15:31,600 –> 00:15:34,120
good for Bikram or hot yoga because they

434
00:15:34,120 –> 00:15:35,590
expect you to wear things like that

435
00:15:35,590 –> 00:15:37,600
other yoga places it might be a little

436
00:15:37,600 –> 00:15:39,910
bit weirder or less acceptable but that

437
00:15:39,910 –> 00:15:41,980
being said you should not get kicked out

438
00:15:41,980 –> 00:15:43,840
of anywhere for wearing a sports bra I

439
00:15:43,840 –> 00:15:46,420
don’t know if I missed any articles of

440
00:15:46,420 –> 00:15:48,550
clothing I went through a lot let’s just

441
00:15:48,550 –> 00:15:50,110
talk about hair real quick if you have

442
00:15:50,110 –> 00:15:54,220
long hair this can be a serious issue so

443
00:15:54,220 –> 00:15:55,570
throughout this video you may have

444
00:15:55,570 –> 00:15:57,910
noticed I have this bun in it’s like the

445
00:15:57,910 –> 00:15:59,830
military sock bun style or like a

446
00:15:59,830 –> 00:16:02,530
ballerina style bun it’s nice for

447
00:16:02,530 –> 00:16:04,090
keeping your hair out of your face but

448
00:16:04,090 –> 00:16:05,950
it’s really bad for yoga the moment you

449
00:16:05,950 –> 00:16:07,780
have to lie on your back this thing is

450
00:16:07,780 –> 00:16:10,420
going to get in your way if you like

451
00:16:10,420 –> 00:16:12,700
doing this style of bun I recommend you

452
00:16:12,700 –> 00:16:14,920
move it up or to the side so that you

453
00:16:14,920 –> 00:16:18,120
can lay on the back of your head

454
00:16:24,520 –> 00:16:27,400
this is the messy bun it’s pretty

455
00:16:27,400 –> 00:16:30,550
popular as a look nowadays I just wear

456
00:16:30,550 –> 00:16:32,410
it to get my hair out of my face but if

457
00:16:32,410 –> 00:16:36,160
I turn you’ll notice that the back of my

458
00:16:36,160 –> 00:16:38,830
head is not obstructed by my hair so

459
00:16:38,830 –> 00:16:40,480
this button is actually really nice and

460
00:16:40,480 –> 00:16:42,160
it’s really easy and if your hair falls

461
00:16:42,160 –> 00:16:43,870
out it’s like a really quick to put it

462
00:16:43,870 –> 00:16:47,010
up if you know how to do it

463
00:16:53,379 –> 00:16:55,439
you

464
00:16:57,290 –> 00:17:00,300
next up is this side braid you can also

465
00:17:00,300 –> 00:17:01,800
do it behind your back

466
00:17:01,800 –> 00:17:03,840
I prefer to do it as a side braid just

467
00:17:03,840 –> 00:17:05,369
so it’s easier to bring it in the front

468
00:17:05,369 –> 00:17:07,650
if you have really short hair and doing

469
00:17:07,650 –> 00:17:09,119
it and you do it in the back it’ll be

470
00:17:09,119 –> 00:17:10,680
really hard to bring forward I have

471
00:17:10,680 –> 00:17:13,200
super long hair so if I did have braids

472
00:17:13,200 –> 00:17:15,450
straight behind myself this would be

473
00:17:15,450 –> 00:17:17,099
fine for me and I could bring it forward

474
00:17:17,099 –> 00:17:19,380
if you seen my videos you probably know

475
00:17:19,380 –> 00:17:21,450
I love doing a side braid and it’ll

476
00:17:21,450 –> 00:17:23,760
sometimes end up on the wrong side but

477
00:17:23,760 –> 00:17:25,440
this is really nice it keeps your hair

478
00:17:25,440 –> 00:17:27,270
out of the way and it’s not super tight

479
00:17:27,270 –> 00:17:29,340
on your head if you do it loose your

480
00:17:29,340 –> 00:17:31,440
hair can still move around and it won’t

481
00:17:31,440 –> 00:17:34,140
pull that’s the problem with some of the

482
00:17:34,140 –> 00:17:35,910
buns they can be a little tight and if

483
00:17:35,910 –> 00:17:38,130
they move or you lie on them it’ll start

484
00:17:38,130 –> 00:17:40,080
pulling your hair this shouldn’t do that

485
00:17:40,080 –> 00:17:43,670
especially if it’s not super tight

486
00:17:50,410 –> 00:17:52,470
you

487
00:18:18,930 –> 00:18:22,570
this is a fishtail braid I just did it

488
00:18:22,570 –> 00:18:24,520
really quickly I meant to talk about it

489
00:18:24,520 –> 00:18:26,020
when I did the previous braid and I

490
00:18:26,020 –> 00:18:28,210
forgot when I took out my hair so I did

491
00:18:28,210 –> 00:18:30,190
it really quickly this is a really thick

492
00:18:30,190 –> 00:18:32,380
one usually these individual strands are

493
00:18:32,380 –> 00:18:34,240
really thin you’ll see but it’s still a

494
00:18:34,240 –> 00:18:36,850
fishtail this is really nice and I find

495
00:18:36,850 –> 00:18:38,380
that this actually holds my hair much

496
00:18:38,380 –> 00:18:40,630
better the other braid my hair tends to

497
00:18:40,630 –> 00:18:42,730
fall out on these sides and in the front

498
00:18:42,730 –> 00:18:45,010
but this for some reason it holds it

499
00:18:45,010 –> 00:18:47,520
like cement

500
00:18:54,650 –> 00:18:56,710
you

501
00:19:15,940 –> 00:19:18,860
this is my all-time favorite hairstyle

502
00:19:18,860 –> 00:19:20,690
for doing yoga it’s the classic French

503
00:19:20,690 –> 00:19:23,660
braid this if you keep it loose up here

504
00:19:23,660 –> 00:19:25,790
and you don’t do it too tight you can

505
00:19:25,790 –> 00:19:27,830
still lay your head back on it in fact I

506
00:19:27,830 –> 00:19:29,660
find that my hair is thick enough that I

507
00:19:29,660 –> 00:19:32,630
have a nice little pillow you can also

508
00:19:32,630 –> 00:19:34,820
do a French braid in a fishtail style

509
00:19:34,820 –> 00:19:37,580
but that takes forever and there’s no

510
00:19:37,580 –> 00:19:39,110
way I’m going to do that just to do yoga

511
00:19:39,110 –> 00:19:41,870
I also like doing French braids because

512
00:19:41,870 –> 00:19:43,220
it goes straight down my back which

513
00:19:43,220 –> 00:19:44,930
means that the brain does not hang over

514
00:19:44,930 –> 00:19:47,330
my shoulder all the time but but if I do

515
00:19:47,330 –> 00:19:49,400
want it to hang over my shoulder I can

516
00:19:49,400 –> 00:19:51,830
just bring it in front and it’s good to

517
00:19:51,830 –> 00:19:53,690
go like I said I have really long hair

518
00:19:53,690 –> 00:19:55,400
though so it’s really easy for me to

519
00:19:55,400 –> 00:19:57,170
bring a braid to the front from the back

520
00:19:57,170 –> 00:19:59,510
and to the other side this is totally an

521
00:19:59,510 –> 00:20:00,980
option for me if you have shorter hair

522
00:20:00,980 –> 00:20:03,350
it still would work and luckily it

523
00:20:03,350 –> 00:20:04,730
wouldn’t be in your back if it’s too

524
00:20:04,730 –> 00:20:07,190
short and you can just pin it up or get

525
00:20:07,190 –> 00:20:10,030
it out of your way somehow

526
00:20:16,790 –> 00:20:18,850
you

527
00:20:19,289 –> 00:20:22,090
this is your classic ponytail I really

528
00:20:22,090 –> 00:20:23,470
like ponytails I think they look really

529
00:20:23,470 –> 00:20:26,110
nice but as you could see that took way

530
00:20:26,110 –> 00:20:27,940
too long for me because I have really

531
00:20:27,940 –> 00:20:29,890
really long hair and a lot of it it

532
00:20:29,890 –> 00:20:32,169
still flops around for me it can get in

533
00:20:32,169 –> 00:20:34,960
my face from the back so this is not a

534
00:20:34,960 –> 00:20:36,460
good option for me just because I have

535
00:20:36,460 –> 00:20:38,740
such long hair it does keep your hair

536
00:20:38,740 –> 00:20:40,299
out of your face and if you’re a big fan

537
00:20:40,299 –> 00:20:42,309
of ponytails you can absolutely do one

538
00:20:42,309 –> 00:20:45,100
just keep in mind that this is going to

539
00:20:45,100 –> 00:20:47,679
be on the back of your head and if you

540
00:20:47,679 –> 00:20:49,780
lie back your might you might have to

541
00:20:49,780 –> 00:20:51,429
move your ponytail but there is always

542
00:20:51,429 –> 00:20:54,840
the option of a low ponytail

543
00:20:58,730 –> 00:21:02,880
this is a low ponytail there’s nothing

544
00:21:02,880 –> 00:21:04,890
particularly spectacular about them

545
00:21:04,890 –> 00:21:06,390
they’re pretty loose usually and they

546
00:21:06,390 –> 00:21:08,580
flop around there’s nothing on the back

547
00:21:08,580 –> 00:21:10,320
of your head so you don’t have to worry

548
00:21:10,320 –> 00:21:11,910
about laying back and having the back of

549
00:21:11,910 –> 00:21:14,010
your head hurt it keeps everything out

550
00:21:14,010 –> 00:21:16,110
from way but like I have really long

551
00:21:16,110 –> 00:21:18,090
hair it can still get in my face very

552
00:21:18,090 –> 00:21:19,890
easily I could throw it over my

553
00:21:19,890 –> 00:21:21,810
shoulders but if you have shorter hair a

554
00:21:21,810 –> 00:21:23,790
low ponytail might absolutely be your

555
00:21:23,790 –> 00:21:30,120
friend and finally we have the hair down

556
00:21:30,120 –> 00:21:32,760
you can also do pigtails in addition to

557
00:21:32,760 –> 00:21:35,400
tying your hair up in any sorts but I

558
00:21:35,400 –> 00:21:37,470
can also do yoga with my hair down but

559
00:21:37,470 –> 00:21:41,130
like I said this is a huge problem when

560
00:21:41,130 –> 00:21:42,960
you’re trying to do yoga it gets in your

561
00:21:42,960 –> 00:21:44,940
face it gets in your way but sometimes

562
00:21:44,940 –> 00:21:46,410
it feels nice and sometimes you just

563
00:21:46,410 –> 00:21:49,470
want to have your hair down I have a lot

564
00:21:49,470 –> 00:21:51,210
though so usually I don’t and I don’t

565
00:21:51,210 –> 00:21:52,980
like to get it in my face and I really

566
00:21:52,980 –> 00:21:56,100
can just flip it up and it gets all over

567
00:21:56,100 –> 00:21:58,560
the place so if you have a really long

568
00:21:58,560 –> 00:22:00,210
hair like me I would not always

569
00:22:00,210 –> 00:22:01,980
recommend doing yoga with your hair down

570
00:22:01,980 –> 00:22:04,020
but you know sometimes I feel super good

571
00:22:04,020 –> 00:22:05,760
on your scalp to have your hair down and

572
00:22:05,760 –> 00:22:07,200
it’s super natural and it’s actually

573
00:22:07,200 –> 00:22:09,090
really good for your hair to just let it

574
00:22:09,090 –> 00:22:12,150
hang out every once in a while so that’s

575
00:22:12,150 –> 00:22:15,360
all I have for you guys today I couldn’t

576
00:22:15,360 –> 00:22:17,340
find second hair ties so I couldn’t show

577
00:22:17,340 –> 00:22:19,110
you pigtails but you can do either

578
00:22:19,110 –> 00:22:22,140
pigtails down like two ponytails or you

579
00:22:22,140 –> 00:22:24,000
can braid them you have a bunch of

580
00:22:24,000 –> 00:22:25,800
options and that’s nice because it’s to

581
00:22:25,800 –> 00:22:28,410
the side you can do two buns I would

582
00:22:28,410 –> 00:22:30,570
have huge buns though so if you have

583
00:22:30,570 –> 00:22:32,700
shorter hair doing two little buns at

584
00:22:32,700 –> 00:22:34,680
the base of your head can work out

585
00:22:34,680 –> 00:22:37,860
really nicely for doing yoga if I didn’t

586
00:22:37,860 –> 00:22:39,420
