White Yoga Shirt Manta Wear

A Guide To Buying Men’s Yoga Clothes

White Yoga Shirt Manta Wear

Freedom top

Hello all you men out there who have decided to take up yoga and really don’t know what to do when it comes to finding the proper yoga clothes for men. You probably have looked at several yoga clothing websites and have found lots of yoga apparel for women, but not a lot of selection for men’s yoga clothes. You might feel some confusion on making a buying decision because some of the clothing features spandex which is uncomfortable and does not ventilate. Or perhaps you couldn’t imagine wearing some of the yoga outfits that are offered for men.

Here are some considerations when looking for men’s yoga clothes:

1.  Bear in mind that yoga exercises are about comforting the mind so make sure that your body is comfortable as well.

  1. Your Yoga clothing should give you room to maneuver because of all the different types of yoga moves performed which may entail twists, turns and stretching, Cotton Drawstring Pants FeaturesMen need practical clothing for these exercises. If your choice of yoga clothing is stiff and tight fitting then this can hamper some of your yoga moves and poses. This can also have an effect on your concentration levels due to the stress of discomfort.
  2. If you are looking for comfortable yoga clothes or meditation clothing for a retreat, you want to look good, so don’t bring your old sweats and stained t-shirts.

Considering  all of the above, I would  recommend the ideal yoga clothes for men; Manta Wear is the perfect yoga attire for men. Why? First of all, Manta Wear is 100% cotton casual clothing which breaths when you are sweating and feels great next to your skin. Going on a retreat? Manta Wear looks attractive and is practical. It’s the only clothing that you will need to bring. Does the retreat require white clothes? Manta Wear has white yoga shirts such as the Freedom Top, white yoga pants called the Drawstring Pants, and for the tropical locales, the white beach shirt known as the Calypso Shirt.

The Yoga Pants debate; The absurdity  of American marketering

Go Google the words yoga pants and you will find an assortment of spandex, skin tight yoga pants and an assortment of sexually provocative “yoga pants”. There are a variety of you tube videos showing off very nicely rounded bottoms.  Leave it to American mainstream consumer culture to brand products with sex appeal to sell more and more to the masses for the all mighty buck. Commercial interests  has taken what used to be a health- oriented discipline whose intent was to help people improve their well-being and has taken a very bizarre tangent that has ignored the health benefits and has taken on a fashion world onto itself which portrays very young bodies in skin tight material so that every little dimple shows . A recent scandal involving a major manufacturer of women’s yoga pants had made them too sheer, thus being see-through. The founder of the firm further complicated matters by publicly stating in a television interview that some of the quality problems can be blamed on women who weren’t slender enough to wear his company’s pants . The result was a ensuing  backlash from women who felt that as most clothing in the fashion industry, they were not made for them, but for a younger, more slender population. Even more twisted on this non-issue debate is a pathetic so-called preacher in Arizona who claims that women who wear yoga pants are sinners and are partially to blame for rape.  Schools are banning yoga pants and leggings and the emergence of tight, stretchy pants has sent school officials into a frenzy – adjusting and readjusting dress codes. Are you tired of this silly debate and are simply looking for yoga pants that are comfortable, soft ,and  loose fitting and are not made for the “perfect body”?  Well, look no further because Manta Wear produces 100% comfortable cotton yoga pants that are perfect for you.

Many people who practice Yoga seem to have the notion that there is a standard  of  fashion in the Yoga world. It almost seems to be a competition of who can look the most incredible squeezed into their super spandex skin. Take a look through any Yoga magazine, and take note that all of the photographs of people who are practicing Yoga seem to be from the “beautiful people” class . And of course, everyone should be striving to look just like them. Most of them appear to be 20 somethings who don’t have an ounce of fat on their bodies, are perfectly shaped and are professional models.  Of course, the Yoga industry wants to sell their products and what better way is there to sell a product by having gorgeous people to look at.

Spandex was created by the Du Pont lavatories in 1959. and is derived from petrochemicals (petroleum product) and its chemical name is polyurethane polymer. In this “enlightened” age where we all want to practice yoga and attain optimum health for our own bodies and the planet, which of course, is a wonderful goal. The one problem with this lofty ideal is that somehow there appears to be selective reasoning. We choose to wrap our bodies in a material which is petroleum based, non- biodegradable and non-renewable and which the production is associated with the release of greenhouse gases.

According to Yogi Bhajan master of Kundalini, “Cotton is the flower of the earth. It is good for your psyche, for your energy and for your nervous system.”  On the subject of teaching yoga, he said, “A teacher wears white cotton clothing while teaching. White clothing makes you as a teacher look devine and represent light.”

According to the Spiritual Science Reseach Foundation, “When we wear clothes that are of the Sattvik (spiritual purity) colors it helps us with our spiritual practice.” The Spiritual Science Research Foundation rates white clothing as beyond sattvik  “…the most helpful in attracting spiritual positive vibrations and repel negative vibrations”

Manta Wear is the perfect travel companion. Here’s why:

Airplane travel: Lets say you are sitting on an airplane for a lengthy trip overseas. You could be sitting in an airplane seat and connecting to other flights for hours on end. This is where you want extreme comfort. Because MANTA WEAR  travel clothes is cotton, it is breathable and it feels just right next to the skin. Years ago before I discovered Manta , my traveling clothes usually consisted of blue jeans and perhaps a polyester blend shirt. At the time this attire seemed fine. But the problem with this is that there is no comfort factor. The jeans bind and have no flexibility in them and the polyester shirt does not breath.The other advantage of Manta Wear is the cabin temperatures on airplanes tend to be rather cold. Manta Wear travel clothing is great for layering. If the temperature goes down you can just add another layer.  Never leave home without your Manta Wear travel Wear

MANTA WEAR Travel Clothes are perfect for traveling in the tropics: Lets say you are planning a vacation to Mexico, Costa Rica or perhaps an island in the Caribbean.
