There’s a special kind of satisfaction that comes with having a yoga membership. Those fortnightly debits from your account offer the promise of a leaner, more limber life. They imply that you have not only the necessary motivation but gift of time management to find that hour to sweat it all out in search of your higher self.

There’s a special kind of satisfaction that comes with having a yoga membership. Those fortnightly debits from your account offer the promise of a leaner, more limber life.

Each and every week, though, that money comes off your balance and each and every week, you have one too many wines at dinner, or just can’t quite peel yourself out of bed for that 6am class, or you have to work late to meet that deadline so you skip your 6pm class. Then, before you know it, the cool calculation of $5 a class on a cost-per-use basis ends up being more like a $578 a session. (Side note: add ‘open a yoga studio’ to ‘future business ideas’ list.)

So, how to get your money’s worth out of that membership of yours? For a start, you need to start going to classes. And what better way incentive than new gear?  We’ve gathered all you need by way of motivation to get your stretch on.

First Base Leggings

The high-waisted leggings

These are a model’s worst-kept secret. Beyond flattering, they hold you in all the right places. No mid-class adjustments necessary. First Base’s option comes in an eco-friendly fabric with matte finish compression lycra. The perfect outfit for your favourite pose (Savasana, right?).

Cotton On Body Active Workout Yoga Crop

A crop to keep your cool

And to hold you tight. This Workout Yoga Crop is high stretch and the perfect stay-dry solution, with material designed to draw sweat away from the skin. Wear it solo or with a T-shirt on top.

First Base Sweater

The no sweat sweatshirt

For before / after class. This retro puff print sweatshirt in 100% super-soft cotton terry is like one, big well-done-you hug.

Cotton On Body Active Tie Front T-Shirt

The tie tee

In breathable cotton-modal jersey, this tee will see you through a class, no sweat. Plus, thanks to the bunny-tie front detail, it won’t fall over your face in Downward Dog. Winning.

P.E Nation's The Tactical Jacket

The bomber jacket

Another pre/ post class essential. Windproof, it’s hotter than your hot yoga class.

adidas Performance Yoga Mat

Hit the mat

A yoga mat that won’t see your class turned into a game of slip and slide is essential. Because no one uses those communal mats out of choice.
