Yoga is the perfect way to unwind, get a good workout and ease the mind. Whether you practice occasionally or every day of the week, you want to be comfortable and stylish while transitioning from downward dog to tree pose.

Even if it’s just classic black yoga pants I need, Spiritual Gangster is my go-to. The high-quality material that stays soft wash after wash. Lately, I’ve been exploring the holiday collection and have found some new winter favorites.
As a woman, shopping for yoga gear is easier. Spiritual Gangster has an adorable kids collection and a mens yoga clothing too!
This brand is all about fashion-forward yoga, from women’s and men’s tops and bottoms to so much more. Explore outfits on Alo’s website and learn more about the mission to “inspire meaningful movement.” The company began in Los Angeles in 2007 and has spread around the world since then influencing new and experienced yogis.
