Patterned, bold, fitted, flared and cropped, there's so many yoga pants to choose from, so its understandable that many yoga lovers stick to the trusty black pair for their daily or weekly sessions.

Aside from the minefield that is choosing the right gym leggings and yoga mats, do we need to be looking elsewhere for the perfect pair of yoga pants?

Essentially, no. As long as you are comfy and able to be your most flexible self. However, when narrowing down our favourites, the words 'nonrestrictive, breathable and moisture wicking' came up A LOT, so it's best to look out for products that include those three points on every budget.
