Yoga pants, yoga pants!

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.

Happy Monday!
