What should I wear to Yoga sessions?
So you’ve decided that 2012 will be the year you get healthy and have even invested in Yoga equipment and looked into signing up for classes. But what should you wear when you’re getting to grips with Downward Facing Dog?
According to Charlotte Watts, a nutritional therapist, Yoga teacher and co-author of The De-Stress Diet, the best clothes to wear for Yoga practice should be comfortable and easy to move around in, particularly around the waist to prevent you from feeling restricted.
This is why many Yoga trousers have fold-over top panels, she explained.
"It can be useful to have clothes that allow you to see the positioning of your knees and be aware of the positioning of your pelvis and lower back. This will help you follow instructions, especially when new poses are unfamiliar to you," the Yoga expert said.
"When we start out on a yoga journey, we can feel body connection takes a while to establish, and seeing alignment in these areas can help you follow postural and placing instructions in ways that safely support your knees and lower back."
Yoga beginners might wish to wear tighter clothes in this case, as doing so can help the instructor see their body alignment and let them know if they need to adjust it.
Ms Watts’ comments came after model Imogen Thomas was spotted leaving her Bikram Yoga class in a stylish white crop top and long black trousers this week.
The 29-year-old had been using Yoga mats in a studio warmed up to 40 degrees Celsius and came outside after the fitness session to cool off in the freezing London air.
Earlier, Imogen had written on her Twitter page about her need to get to the class.
"Off to Bikram with a sore head. Need to sweat these lychee martinis out," she tweeted her followers.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
