Which Yoga Pants Are Right For You?

August 29 | The Lifestyle | The Practice |


The activewear trend is on the rise, which means there are more brands and styles than ever to choose from. But, shopping for yoga clothes is about more than just finding what looks good. The right type of fabric can make all the difference in your practice, whether you’re taking a Deep Stretch class, sweating it out in Power Yoga, being pushed to your limit in Boot Camp, or simply running errands after class. At YogaSix, we carry the brands you need to support your life and practice, from fit to fabric and beyond.

YogaSix Retail Specialist and fashion blogger Nikki Acuna has your guide to technical fabrics and what to shop for in our retail boutique. Pick up these styles and more at your local YogaSix studio.


Onzie fabrics use sweat-wicking technology to keep you dry and comfortable during hot classes and other vigorous activities. When you sweat, the fabric pulls the moisture to the outside of the pant so that you are free to move about without excess moisture. 

Perfect for: Hot Yoga, Power Yoga, Boot Camp

Designed by the makers of our favorite yoga mats and gear, Manduka pants have the benefit of being both breathable and responsibly sourced. The company incorporates organic cotton and recycled fibers into their products. The result is a versatile pant with a flexible fit that is #MadeForYoga and perfect for a variety of workout types.

Alo Yoga

Alo’s pants are special in their own way. Their anti-microbial fabric prevents the growth of odor growing bacteria, which is especially useful for heated classes. They also incorporate a 4 way stretch sculpting technology that flatters virtually every body type without restricting movement. This allows you to go about your day looking amazing while still enjoying the comfort of a quality yoga pant. Their trendy textures and patterns add an element of “cool” to their pieces.

Beyond Yoga

Beyond Yoga fabrics are soft to the touch yet durable, which makes them perfect for any type of yoga class. Their Supplex fabric is quick drying with generous stretch to fit all body types. I love wearing Beyond when I’m out and about running errands – they feel amazing! These pants are also hassle-free and can be put through the washer and dryer.
