It's safe to say the days when workout wear consisted of cotton t-shirts and shin-length basketball shorts are a thing of the past. The modern on-the-go athlete wants gear that not only performs well in the gym, but makes a seamless (and stylish) transition to the streets—and Manduka has been applying this concept to yoga gear since 1997.
Crafted from durable, high-quality—and often renewable—materials, Manduka's yoga apparel covers all the angles in the studio. Cut in a tailored fit, the gear offers maximal freedom of movement, whether you're making the down-dog to cobra pose transition or mastering that ever-elusive handstand. The Intentional Hoodie is filled with unique detailing like the side zipper and hidden smartphone sleeve and, along with the matching Intentional Shorts, is made from an ultra-soft French terry that you're never going to want to take off. The simple yet perfectly form-fitting Transcend Long Sleeve Shirt is so versatile, you wouldn't be wrong to throw it on with a pair of jeans on the weekend.
But my favorite time to rock Manduka's gear is after Bikram class ends—when I head over to my local coffee shop for a cortado before transitioning back to reality. Sleek, minimal and the definition of comfortable, you'll have a hard time getting me out of this look anytime soon. Shop it below.
