So, I’ve taken up Bikram Yoga (used to do Ashanga but I needed some variety), i.e. Hot Yoga, as in yoga in a really hot and humid room. I really like it!
I quickly discovered though that you can NOT (at least I) yoga in capri yoga pants, I did the first time and it was painfully warm. So I bought a pair of hideously expensive yoga shorts first thing!
Then I discovered that I really needed two sets of clothes since I don’t have the time to wash them often enough to be able to work out as often as I like (I also needed more towels, I use up three every time, two to cover my mat).
Hence this outfit, at a fraction of the price of the first one; a pair of shorts (a simple copy of the ones I bought) and a top (a copy of one of my favourite bikini-tops).
All sewn on my serger (overlock).
And big relief: I bought a loop-turner, it’s one of the best sewing gadgets I’ve come upon yet! The drawstrings wouldn’t be the same without it (and they would have taken a few times longer to make)
(oh and if anyone else here is into Bikram, you’ll know mr Bikram himself has actually banned the colour green from his studio. I feel like an ashtanga yoga-rebel when I roll my green mat out, heheh. Lucky me he’s not there to tell me off).
