All Yoga All the Time. [Feb. 9th, 2005|12:45 pm]
Whole lotta labia.
Things which I may require:


and These.

Anyone know anything about either of them? Also.. raise your hand if you've got yoga experience.. I have a question for you.

Personally, I don't wear yoga pants that are too loose because it distracts from my attention whilst doing certain poses, as they slip down and bunch, etc. But it's up to what you're MOST comfortable in.

Also, I have never done any *hardcore* yoga in which I required any "paws". Unless your feet sweat profusely, the mat will not be too slippery.

Again, only from my roughly 1 year of experience, mind you.

Ah.. the paws would actually be for occasions when I dont' have my mat. When I'm away from home or when I'm at work. I've been thinking about where I could fit more yoga in and the only answer is to do it at lunch in the unused conference room upstairs. The space is perfect but I don't want to go lugging my mat into work or storing it up there.. I'm trying to be inconspicuous. :)

I've always done yoga in my jammie pants or bike shorts at home but I bought a pair of yoga pants to wear to my dance class. They sit low enough to get a good sense of what your hips are doing and are tight enough in the thigh to get a good sense of alignment. I just fell in love with how comfy they were to dance in and one of my classmates had the BaliDog pants on and I got the website from her.. I was thinking they'd be fun to add to the Middle Eastern dance theme. ;)

Those pants are fabulous. ::covet::

But you know, I wouldn't wear them for yoga, because for yoga I need tight pants so that I don't get all tangled up and end up stepping on my own pants, showing off my underwear in the process.* I would wear them for lounging and hanging about, though.

The hands and feets paws things, though, would probably work very well, especially if you combined it with a towel for anything where your neck needed protecting. And if you had clean floors where you were going to be working.

*Spoken as someone who (a) can't wear pjs to bed because I always manage to get completely tangled up in them, too, and (b) has actually had the experience of falling over in yoga class because I stepped on my own pants while coming out of a posture. Also once because I got my hair trapped under my hands, but that's another story.

God, seriously - as my hair grows longer again I'm totally starting to remember why I wore it up all through high school and university. :P

I generally wear stretchy pants when doing yoga, as it let's me see my form better... and it's not as distracting when you're upside down. ::smile::

The paws? I ordered some when you first pointed them out months ago. Perfect for the office. Have a hard day? Go through a stressful meeting? Close the office door and strike a pose. ::grin::
