Clothing for yoga practice is a particularly interesting category in terms of purchasing ethically and/or ethically made goods. Yogis believe that it is important to extend intentional living not just during yoga, but in life, including being a conscious consumer.
Conscious consumerism aligns strongly with some of the important tenants of yoga leaders.
Being intentional about where your clothes come from and how they are made is a part of this.
Not surprisingly, a study by “Yoga in America” found that yogies were twice as likely to be environmentally conscious than the general population. The practice of yoga teaches mindfulness and ethical guidelines which are known as yamas and niyamas respectfully.
Ultimately, this translates to many sustainable yoga clothing brands. This is a list of just some of the conscious yoga clothing brands. DM us if you have another to add!
