I did yoga today for the first time in months. 30 minutes of a Beginner Strength class from the Yoga Studio app on my iPhone. My body resisted for the first 25 minutes and the last 5 were pure bliss. It felt great to breathe, stretch and activate muscles that have been otherwise neglected. After I was done, I asked myself, “Why don’t I do this every day?”
I could bore you with my excuses but I’d rather muse over what yoga outfits I might make. Before my breath became full and my mind slowed, I thought about what I could sew that would allow me to, on any given day, get in a short yoga session, stay comfortable, and save my “real” workout clothes for when I really want to sweat. Because there’s one thing I dislike more than strenuous exercise, laundry.
So I took a look at what was out there. I think these may work.
And then there’s the real deal yoga pants… Something to consider.
Aries by Collette Patterns I did this pose today. And coincidentally, some of my favorite people are Aries! And one of them loves cats!!! It is meant to be.
The lined petal cuff is a nice detail for these otherwise simple leggings.
There are lots of choices from the indie pattern makers! Let me know if you have any recommendations.
