I don’t talk about a lot of brands on my site because honestly, I’m pretty picky and I’m also cheap, but one company that I really love is Gaiam. I love that their brand focuses on positive change, health and wellness and being Mother Earth friendly. So when they asked if I’d like to review a few products I literally jumped up and down with excitement. Then I jumped with joy when I opened the box and saw my new Gaiam yoga capri pants, yoga mat and matching bag and water bottle.
Since then I have been wearing the pants ALL THE TIME! I wear them to yoga, zumba, running, coffee down the street, grocery shopping and around the house and the best part is – they are SO comfortable I practically forgot I’m wearing them. In fact, I love them so much that I wish I had two pairs – one for working out and one pair to lounge in.
They’re especially awesome because they fit well, they are flexible and breathable, they are super flattering and they fall right at my knees, which is just where I like it. And they even have a little zipper pocket on my left hip, which is great for when I go running and want to bring a few bucks and a chap-stick. The pants are made with 94% organic cotton and 6% spandex.
I also love my new yoga mat – it’s so beautiful and relaxing to look at while I’m in downward dog. It’s also a great thickness – only 3mm – and it’s not slippery at all. I’ve taken my mat to Forrest yoga classes, a few vinyasa and one astanga and in every class I feel stable and well protected. And I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on the color and the beautiful Tree of Life design.
Overall, I might not like to spend a ton of money on workout clothing or any clothing for that matter but I do care about good quality which is why I love Gaiam. Their products are durable and also very good looking and makes my life easier, which is great!
