It’s summer, it is hot and therefore more during the hot yoga practice. It has often been used to adopt a minimalist attitude by wearing shorts to feel lighter but here are several reasons to stay in capris:
1 – Absorbs sweat: if puddles of sweat form on the carpet, then it can become slippery, and you may go deeper into your poses while your muscles are not ready or even fall.
2 – Give the grip: there are poses such as the tree where a body part is supported on the leg. The fabric of your pants will provide adhesion to achieve greater success.
3 – Guard covered: the baggy shorts are fine but they can offer a view of your “assets” at any time when you raise your leg. If you opt for small tight shorts, they can move and show more flesh than you would like.
Everyone has their preferences for hot yoga clothing, but the wearing of pants will not give you warmer than wearing shorts while preventing injuries. So pants are a safer choice!
