As a retired synchro swimmer, the image above appeals to me. Also, the caption resonates with my quest to keep my sweat at a reasonable level in hot yoga. From what I gather, the majority of hot yoga enthusiasts wear minimal amounts of clothing while they get their asanas on. These classes are very well-lit and always full, so no, I’m not brave enough for yoga shorts.

These hot yoga finds just might boost my confidence in the studio.

One of my favorites — a classic at poolside — Sammy (the) Shammy:

Brave enough for Yoga Shorts?

If you’ve visited my Etsy profile you’ll know that I’m a lover of crafters and the crafty. People seemed to really dig my recent leggings feature, so I thought I’d share some fave yoga shorts from Etsy.

Brave enough for yoga shorts, or are you more comfy in your tights?

Crafty Yoga

After reading Hally Marlino’s post about yoga pants on YOGANONYMOUS today, I — like about 98% of commenters on the post — fell in love with the mermaid leggings featured. After performing a Google image search for the groovy, scaled leggings, I decided to wander over to Etsy to see what those crafty yoga enthusiasts were offering.
