Top Health Benefits of Yoga And Reasons to start Yoga in 2021
Bystanders who watch a yoga classes are generally floored at the balance, flexibility, and overall focus of those who participate. Those who practice yoga, wearing tight leggings and yoga pants, look poised and fit. There’s a tendency for beginners to think, “Oh no, that’s not for me.” You may even have been told that yoga isn’t for you.

But the world today has changed the landscape of how we think about fitness classes. It has hit the pause button on group classes, and many gyms around the world are still closed. And it’s allowing a unique opportunity to take advantage of the “workout from home” resources available, to try in the comfort of your own living room.

As it turns out, now is the perfect time to take up yoga. And the perfect time to purchase a gorgeous new pair of yoga pants.


A little bit of introspection is a good thing right now. Yoga focuses on mindfulness, breathing, and taking inventory of our bodies, and it’s important to check in with ourselves regularly.

Being in tune with how you are feeling today versus yesterday, versus last week, can help you understand your mind and body, and notice when there are changes.

Health Benefits

We would be remiss if we didn’t talk about the health benefits of yoga, though so many of them are obvious – both physical and mental.

The pandemic has stressed us out, setting off episodes of depression and anxiety as we fear for our families, our jobs, and our way of life. Yoga has been shown in studies to help relieve anxiety, and provide stress management. It can even help you sleep better.

Yoga improves your physical fitness as well, which reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancers. And even small amounts of light exercise have been shown to reduce blood pressure.

This is important now more than ever, when the virus is disproportionately affecting those with underlying conditions like heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.

Yoga Pants Are A Must Have Item

Yoga pants are the most comfortable clothing you can get. At Lily Mist our leggings are super soft, stretchy and gorgeous.

Yoga pants are also becoming as much about style as function. While they’re wonderfully stretchy, sweat wicking, and perfect for freedom while you’re practicing, yoga pants are also about suiting the personality of the owner. They feature bold prints and vibrant designs, perfect for yoga or a quick run to the grocery store.


Now is the perfect time to pick up yoga, allowing you to build your confidence on your own. Even a small amount of light activity will help you check in with yourself, and allow you to start reaping the health benefits. Plus, you can look and feel pretty kick-butt while you practice, in a new pair of pretty yoga pants.
