Hot Yoga Clothing You’ll Love Gettin’ Sweaty In

Hot yoga is a style of yoga that is practiced in warmer, humid conditions (typically around 105 degrees Fahrenheit and 40% humidity), and during this 60 to 90 minute class you will strengthen your muscles and raise your heart rate. For many yogis, the less clothing during hot yoga, the better. That is why many hot yoga practitioners choose to practice in shorts and a sports bra or other lightweight and sweat-wicking fabrics.
We have done the research for you and found 10 hot yoga clothing styles that we think are the cat’s pajamas when it comes to hot yoga:

Teeki Purple Haze Sun Shorts and New Moon Black Mermaid Tank
