Favorite Things: Pure Yogi

Recently, I had the chance to try out some shorts from Pure Yogi. What interested me most about their products was their committment to creating clothing that was free of toxins and environmentally friendly. They use organic cotton which they claim is softer, but which they also point out has not been impacted by the use of chemicals.

As you all know, I have a bit of an issue with buying yoga clothes. And by issue, I mean buying yoga clothes is a full on hobby of mine. I love them, and I have something from most brands. I am never opposed to getting new yoga wear. I have acquired so many clothes that today, in class, two people thought I was wearing new shorts. The shorts were in fact a year old (at least), but I have so many clothes that they can disappear to the bottom of the pile and not resurface for a long time.

That won’t be the case with the Pure Yogi shorts.

I got the Hot Yoga Shorts from Prue Yogi. I got these because they specifically had the words hot yoga in them, but also because they did not have any strings on them. You know, ladies, how a lot of hot yoga shorts have strings that you tie on the side? I hate those. I mean, I put up with them, but they usually just drive me nuts. I love shorts without the strings. The description also said that these shorts would stay in place. Would they? I was interested to find out.

I took the shorts to class on a Sunday when I was going to take my regular beginner class followed by two hours of advanced. If I’m going to try out a new brand, I’m really gonna try them out. No fooling around here. The shorts were a little longer than I am used to wearing. Disclosure: I typically wear the shortest shorts on the planet that I can get away with. So, if you don’t like wearing the standard hot yoga short-short, you may feel a bit more comfortable in these. If you DO like wearing the short-shorts (and I definitely do), these are a nice change of pace. The length isn’t good or bad for me. It’s just different. I only point it out because some of you may really like the length.

Were they soft? Yes.

Did they stay in place? Yes, they really did. I know with the drawstring shorts I do spend time adjusting. No adjusting needed here during practice.

But the most interesting part was I kinda forgot I was wearing them. At some point, they really started to feel like a second skin. I liked that. The shorts felt like they were a part of me, and I didn’t even pay attention to them as I was practicing. That’s a sign of a great yoga short.

But here’s the best part – you don’t have to take my word for it because Pure Yogi is doing a give away with me! That’s right – you can win something fabulous from Pure Yogi (and guys, you should enter to because they have men’s wear).

To Enter: To enter, please let a comment on this post that says, “Enter.” That’s it. If your comment does not contain the word enter then you won’t be entered. The contest will run from now until noon on Thursday, October 3rd. At that time, a winner will be randomly selected. I will announce the winner on FB so if you haven’t liked my FB page yet, please do so to find out if you’ve won. You will then be put in touch with someone at Pure Yogi to get yourself some awesome yoga wear. Also, Pure Yogi would appreciate it if you would like then on FB and follow them on Twitter at PureYogi1

Good luck!
