You can purchase the best yoga books, mats, DVDs and uniforms that money can buy, but none of it necessarily makes your mind-body experience any better. That's the message we consistently try to get across at Dahn Yoga: you shouldn't have to shell out in order to bliss out.
A good example of unnecessarily pricey yoga meditation supplies can be found in a new line of yoga clothing released by the apparel company Garnet Hill.
Called the ZinniTM collection, it includes the standard sort of pants, shirts, shorts and wraps that you'd expect these days. Nearly all items are made with synthetic fibers, and many of the top-and-bottom sets have a clingy, restrictive fit.
The company's vice president of merchandising, Joanne M., called the line an "exclusive collection," which is pretty accurate, considering that even a simple pair of ZinniTM pants costs north of $80.
Now, it's certainly fine to wear any kind of clothing you like while doing yoga. However, you don't have to spend a bundle to be comfortable and stylish. Essentially, all you need in order to regulate your body temperature is a good pair of loose, natural-weave pants and a long-sleeved top.
