If you have ever been to a yoga class, you know how important it is to wear the right pair of leggings. Yoga is a practice that requires a lot of bending, stretching, spreading, posing and flexing, so it’s imperative that you dress the part. Whether you call them yoga pants or leggings, you need to make sure that they are comfy, stretchy, and cooling. There are different variations of yoga and some require more movement and flexibility than others. Kundalini yoga, for example, builds physical vitality with rapid and constant movements whereas restorative yoga is more of a relaxed practice with just a few calming poses. Whether you’re in Shavasana or Downward-Facing Dog, here are six yoga pants that are perfect for any type of yoga practice! And, of course, reviews if you won’t take our word for it!


Athleta Straight Up Pant ($39.99, originally $79.99)

These yoga pants were made specifically for power performance. They’re mid-rise, straight-leg and come in regular, tall, petite and plus sizes. Get them now while they’re $40 off!

“Nice yoga/out & about pants. I like the higher waistline and the pant-like bottoms rather than the tight ankles. I am 5’4″, 140 lbs. and the Medium fits perfectly. Love to wear the straight up pant with the thread light tee for the ultimate in comfort.” -Untitled33

Athleta Stripes Chaturanga Capri ($44.97, originally $64.00)

These are Athleta’s “go-to tights for yoga and studio workouts made from our signature soft, stretchy, wicking Pilayo.” Named after the “low plank” pose, these leggings have a comfortable, wide waistband and a breathable crotch gusset.

“Very true to size. Super comfortable, could wear all day!The waist didn’t shift at all while working out. Well worth it!” -Jessr

Old Navy High-Rise Yoga Leggings for Women ($19.99)

These are one of Old Navy’s bestselling leggings and for good reasons! The leggings sit high on the waist so they don’t slip down, and come in lengths regular, tall, and petite, and sizes XS through XXL.

“Love wearing these while running errands and exercising!” -Kristi1324

lululemon Wunder Under Hi-Rise 7/8 Tight Full-On Luxtreme 25″ ($98.00)

These versatile leggings were made for yoga, the gym, or for casual wear. They come in 11 different colors and designs and are available in sizes two through 12.

“I absolutely love these pants! NOT see-through, they don’t slide down if you have the correct size, comfortable, and breathable. Plus you have the option to wear them high-rise or fold them down and wear them low-rise. I do Crossfit and they are perfect for everything.” –AMBERALERT

Alo Yoga GODDESS LEGGING ($94.00)

Alo is a brand that specializes in stylish and cozy yoga gear. Celebrities like Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Taylor Swift have been spotted sporting Alo yoga leggings. We love these leggings because they feature a bottom panel that stretches around the foot, and they’re made with flattering material that lifts and sculpts.

These VS Anytime Legging are mid-rise, skinny, and mid-weight, perfect for stretching and moving. They’re made from a super soft cotton-and-modal blend and come in five different colors.

“I am in love with these leggings! They fit great, plus they aren’t see-through when you bend over.” -Charlotte1212

lululemon Awakening Tight Taryn Toomey Collection 25″ ($98.00)

“These super high-rise tights keep you covered through all your sweaty activities,” Lululemon states on their website. These leggings come in three soft colors including “Dusty Mauve” (pictured), white, and “Magnum,” and have a stylish ruching at the ankles.

“I bought these tights in the Magnum colour after heavily debating with purchasing the white. They are awesome! Quick drying, high waisted, moves easily with me through my movement practice, and the colour is so pretty (like a dusty purple).” –SPIRALJESS
