I have been obsessed with hot yoga lately, and wish that I could be in class right now instead of watching the blizzard (which the Weather Channel has dubbed Nemo- the name is the only good thing about this storm) from my window. To warm myself up and get a bit of a hot yoga fix, I thought I would share my hot yoga essentials with you.
One: A lightweight wicking tank top. My favorite is the Too Perfect Rib Tank by adidas.
Two: A stretchy headband to battle flyaways. I love the Nike Sport Headbands because they don’t slide.
Three: A great, wicking sports bra. The Nike Pro Sports Bra is super comfortable.
Four: Yoga shorts in a breatheable, four-way stretch fabric. The Lulu Lemon Boogie Short never rides up and stays flat against your skin!
Five: A reusable water bottle with a straw. This Nathan Steel Water Bottle has an easy open top, perfect for sneaking a drink during downward dog.
Six: A comfortable, non-slip yoga mat. Gaiam is my go-to yoga brand; this mat doesn’t slide and is wonderfully thick.
Seven: A mat bag with pockets. This Tree of Life Tote bag has zippered pockets and a magnetic closure, and it fits everything I need to bring to class.
Eight: A fast-drying, small towel. The Thirsty Yoga Hand Towel is made from microfiber, great for blotting away sweat.
Nine: A non-slip mat towel. The Grippy Yoga Mat Towel fits perfectly on top of my mat and absorbs sweat instantly, which in a room that is 105 degrees is a necessity.
This is what I wear and bring everyday to go sweat out my worries. Do you have a favorite yoga brand, or would you add another essential to this list? Let me know in the comments below!

I'm a huuuuuge YOGA fan! I love this and the fact that the mat is green, it makes me feel more healthy than just doing yoga on my old black mat lol.

I haven't tried hot yoga, but I definitely need some new workout clothes. This gave me some good inspiration! Perhaps we could follow each other?

Yoga! Man. Wish I were healthier and better at this, but it's still glorious. One of my best friends is a teacher, and I've always dreamed of being that good.
Great pics for hot yoga. It's seriously painfully hot! SO those yoga shorts are fabulous. In fact, I love yoga shorts so much that I seriously cannot get myself to take them off.
Love the green top too. Great color.
Enjoy your yoga! 🙂
Such a great post. I have never practiced yoga, but I think it will be interesting and probably very useful to try. 🙂 Love your pics.
