The Hottest Yoga Clothing to Stay Cool This Summer

Published on July 20, 2017

Yogis need to feel cool, calm and comfortable, especially when practicing yoga on hot summer days. Too much summer warmth can aggravate the pitta dosha and create agitation, irritation, and restlessness—all qualities yogis want to minimize on and off their yoga mats. To stay cool this summer, minimize the amount of coverage with bras or crop tops, shorts or capris, and yoga clothes with mesh panels. Stay cool and calm by choosing yoga clothes with cooling colors of blue and white. We have 10 great suggestions of cute and cooling summer yoga outfits that will help you beat the summer heat with style, both in and out of the studio.
