Just like any other sport, yoga requires comfortable, breathable and special workout essentials as well. With all the old classics (such as Nike and Adidas) and all the new, upcoming activewear yoga brands, you might get a little lost in the maze of gym wear, but with these 10 best yoga clothing brands, you are definitely set for a great yoga experience!
We couldn’t start our list with anyone else but the absolute queen of activewear, Lulu Lemon. Besides all the gorgeous running leggings and workout tops, Lulu Lemon also offers a wide range of yoga clothing items, ranging from leggings to bralettes and tops. What makes Lulu Lemon so special and one of the biggest activewear brands out there, chosen by millions of women each year? Their items are made especially for different workout types. From the materials (such as added Lycra and breathable mesh) to the smallest design details (hidden pockets, no-dig waistband and laser-cut detailing), Lulu Lemon makes sure to create something unique with every workout outfit. Our favorites from the range would have to be the laser cut leggings with the special Full-On Luxtreme fabric and the Free To Be Serene Bra, which features a pretty cross-body back.
MIKA Yoga Wear
Another fun and youthful yoga brand is MIKA, created by Laura, a founder who has been practicing yoga for over 15 years. Besides relying on her past experiences and knowledge when creating different designs, Laura also has an amazing, small team who help her out with sourcing and creating the garments, and the results are absolutely breathtaking. Bold colors, unique combination, fun shapes and patterns and high-quality materials: these are the first words that come to our mind when describing MIKA Yoga Wear pieces, and besides their stunning clothing items, MIKA also has lots of different values that we adore, such as rejecting photoshoping their campaign images and their models’ bodies. If we had to choose only one thing from their collection, it would have to be the Lucina Mesh leggings, which features a beautiful, high-quality mesh panel.
Living colorfully, mindfully and beautifully – this is the motto of Lily Lotus, the youthful and hip activewear brand, which has prospered into the collection of everyday glam and sporty chic.

With the color choices, patterns and high-quality materials (that will keep you comfy during the hardest yoga workouts as well), their pieces clearly represent their positive mindset and careful attention to detail. To make sure you are ready for each season, they bring out four different, stunning collections every year, featuring different shades, designs, and patterns. To ensure their products are high-quality and eco-friendly, Lily Lotus creates every garment in the USA, using low impact dyes and ethically sourced materials. Our favorite from their collection is the Roll-Capri Spiral Wash Lunar with its beautiful color combination of pink and purple.

Another amazing thing about their lines is that pieces can be mixed and matched easily – rock a Capri with a sports bra or choose full-length leggings with a teardrop bra. Instead of loud patterns, Montiel focuses on the different shapes with pieces such as their Trixy Bra or Mia Bra.

Eagle Rock Werkshop
Art meets activewear – these Eagle Rock Werkshop pieces will definitely motivate you to grab your stuff and head to the yoga studio or have a quick meditating session at home.

These can go perfectly together if you’d like to create a very interesting and one of a kind set, but you can also match a pair of these stunning leggings with something more simple.
