Deck the halls with yoga clothing…

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la.

OK, I’ll admit it… I had semi-selfish motives for writing this article (i.e., public documentation of my Christmas wish list. You’re welcome, family and friends). However, given that it's the season of giving, what better way to spread some holiday cheer than through a little yuletide yoga? At least that’s what I’m telling myself.

So here you have it Mom and Dad ... um, I mean, peeps: a complete wish list of wants and needs for your special yogi!


The Mat, $68

Deck the halls with yoga clothing…

Behold “the Mat” of all mats. (But seriously, that’s the name, so it must be good.)

Lululemon’s “The Mat” is the perfect gift for both aspiring and accomplished yogis. Unlike most mats, this one is made with rubber for added support and cushioning between you and those hard floors. It’s especially useful for all you hot-yoga lovers, as it provides a great no-slip grip!


Namaste Yoga Tote *Mesh, $48

Deck the halls with yoga clothing…

And because clearly, you can’t just hold a mat like the one above however you please, you’ll probably need one of these!

Lululemon’s Namaste Yoga Tote *Mesh allows you to stash your mat while still looking sleek and stylish. It even has two exterior pockets to organize and store all your essentials (for example, keys, water, dark chocolate, etc.)


Mantra Tee, $68

Deck the halls with yoga clothing…

Speaking of sleek and stylish, this Mantra Tee is another must-have under the tree!

AZIAM activewear sells these adorable tees in three different shades — light gray, teal ombre and white. Each tee comes with a positive, inspiring message on the inside of the right sleeve — perfect gift for any yogi!


Karma Capri, $78

Deck the halls with yoga clothing…

You didn’t really think I would let you buy a cute top without some equally cute crops, did you?

AZIAM’s Karma Capri pants come in four fun colors; they're the perfect pants to keep you looking chic from the studio to the street. Obviously another winner for your warrior!


Subscription to Yoga Journal, $14

Deck the halls with yoga clothing…

Because what good is new gear without some quality reference material?

Enter Yoga Journal — the go-to guide for all things downward-dog-related. At less than 15 bucks per year, this gift of yoga knowledge is a total steal!
