Yoga, Men and the Seven Chakras
Yoga for Everyone
In some civilizations there is a common misconception among people that Yoga is an exercise solely meant for women. The truth is that many great Yoga teachers (called Yogi) are men and that any and everyone can benefit from Yoga. Yoga is a great way to get a full body workout and people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and genders can practice it.
No matter who you are, if you choose to practice Yoga, you should have comfortable clothing to do it in. However, because Yoga pants and leggings have been popularized by women, some men may be unsure about what they should wear to Yoga sessions.
In 2012, about 4 million men practiced yoga, in the US, which grew to 10 million in 2016. Geek Health Journal, October, 2022.
What Should Men Wear to Do Yoga?
Since many men join a Yoga class for strength, power and agility, often they just wear their regular gym clothes. However, there are still some key things you want to be aware of when dressing for Yoga.
Wear breathable clothes
You want to ensure that whatever you wear is breathable and comfortable. A typical one-hour Yoga session can burn anywhere between 180-600 calories, depending on your level. That means you may be sweating a lot during your session.
Wearing breathable clothes will help to keep you as cool, dry and comfortable as possible during your session so you don’t become distracted by discomfort – wear clothes that will makes you feel light and laugh with joy :)
Ensure clothes are not too loose
While you want your clothes to be comfortable, you also don’t want them too loose. Yoga involves quite a bit of deliberate, repeated movement, stretching and bending, which may not necessarily be conducive to baggy, loose clothing.
Loose clothing can become a nuisance by sliding and getting in the way of your moves (asanas).
Avoid tight clothing
Being agile is extremely important in Yoga. Your clothes shouldn’t be a burden or a hassle, especially since Yoga works through the body to deepen the mind-body-spirit connection.
Wearing clothing that allows for a comfortable stretch – and this includes Hot Yoga – without the worry of your clothes ripping at the seams will make a huge difference in your confidence and performance.

Can men wear leggings, too? According to Vanessa Friedman, in a recent article in the New York Times, yes! It wasn’t until the 1800s that men’s leggings fell out of favour. But they have been working their way back for a while now as part of a guy’s athletic wardrobe. Friedman adds: “Of course, certain groups — rock stars, superheroes — never abandoned them.”
