I guess it’s a little ironic for me to suggest that aspiring yogis who are eager to channel their inner zen should venture out into the the super chaotic, stress-inducing environment that is any store or mall on Black Friday in the name of meditative practices. But trust me, friends, once you’re slipping on a pair of cute yoga pants, and stepping onto that never-touched, ultra pristine mat, you’ll thank me, and so will your peace of mind.
What’s great about yoga is that each practice is unique. Your yoga journey is going to be different from your best friend’s journey, and even the path of your studio instructor. What you bring to the mat is completely up to you and what you’re feeling. This goes for equipment as well; you could literally start a practice in an old t-shirt and Soffe shorts on your living room rug, but there’s nothing quite like purchasing a fresh pair of stretchy yoga pants, or a block that’ll ease you into the more challenging poses.
Are you enticed? I thought you might be. Check out these amazing Black Friday sales fit for yogis of every level, because investing in your practice also means investing in yourself.
Yellow Willow Yoga Is Cutting Down Prices From 30 Percent
Apparel sets and fancy accessories are secondary when starting a yoga practice: Your foundation is a sturdy mat that speaks to both your personality, and what you want to get out of your practice. Yellow Willow Yoga mats are as gorgeous as they are stable — aka non-slip. They’re also eco-friendly and machine-washable, so you can easily keep the material fresh between sweat sessions.
Gymshark Is Slashing Its Prices By 70 Percent Site-Wide
Gymshark pieces are some of the most comfortable I own, and trust me, I’m picky AF when it comes to the athleisure I sport. In terms of yogi attire, I definitely recommend checking out the brand’s seamless leggings during the site-wide sale — happening Nov. 19 through Nov. 27 — because they’re so easy to move in. As for pieces to wear over your tank top and cropped sports bras, Gymshark’s hoodies are by far my favorite.
