Icebreaker, Lolë, prana, Under Armour, Yoga. 4 Brands to Discover for an Optimal Yoga Experience

Reduce stress, improve posture and flexibility, develop strength… yoga is an activity with many benefits on the body. To make the most of your session, it is important to be well equipped. After all, there is nothing more frustrating than being self-conscious in positions by clothes that are too stiff, bulky, or poorly supportive.

In yoga, everything is a question of comfort. When you are bent into a particularly complex position, the last thing you want is to be bothered by a misplaced fold. So, for a smooth session, try the clothes offered by the four following brands available at Altitude sports. After that, it will only be necessary to remind yourself to breathe between positions and follow your flow.

The clothes offered by the Montreal brand Lolë are regularly among our favourites when it comes to yoga. This is no surprise once you have seen the colorful leggings or camisoles soft as silk. No matter what type of yoga you practice, you’ll love Lolë’s soft fabrics and thoughtful accessories.

Here’s some good news! This Montreal brand’s products are just as suitable for everyday use as they are for yoga because for Lolë, “well-being is a way of life”. From the casual apparel products to the light down jackets for spring, you’ll find a variety of quality products designed for active women who dress for both a Vinyasa session and for a coffee with friends.

In founding the Californian brand PrAna, Beaver and Pam Theodosakis had two goals in mind: to provide active women with clothes that are as elegant as they are comfortable and to do it in the most eco-friendly way possible. Results? Yoga clothes with bold cuts and colorful patterns, carefully crafted with the most eco-responsible products possible. The brand uses organic cotton, recycled wool and polyester, as well as being bluesign® certified among others and fair trade. Add to that clothes that can be traced almost to the precise cotton plane from which the fiber was extracted.

Doing good for your body with yoga while consuming responsibly: it’s not bad a win-win solution.
