Triangle Pose Variation
Half Lord Of The Fishes
I am absolutely loving my new Pi Yoga Pants! They’re incredibly comfortable, being made of a soft and light material that’s really breathable even during the more heated and intense practices. However, both the stitching and the material are very sturdy, leaving me feeling that they’re perfectly capable of holding up well for a long period of time. Despite being so light and cool the material is similar to good linen in the sense that there is no feeling of stifling but also no feeling of air rushing into the legs. As an added bonus, they are also completely opaque so there won’t be any embarrassing panties-on-display moments! The ankles and waist are almost ridiculously flexible, meaning they’ll still fit fine even if you happen to lose (or gain of course, but if you’re not trying to gain weight I hope it’s the former) a fair bit of weight, so you don’t need to worry about replacing them for being too big (or small). Plus, if you happen to eat a big meal – I don’t known about anyone else but I have a rather prominent food baby after a good meal – or have an unfortunate bloating moment, the waist elastic still never gets too tight, and forms a very wide band capable of covering most of the stomach, so they’re a lot comfier than the well-known button-undone jeans without having to pull them down at all. I have rather long legs for my height; being 5’10” but having a very long inside leg I struggle to find trousers that go all the way to my ankle, however the Pi Yoga Pants aren’t just long enough but actually have length to spare! They will fit absolutely fine on shorter legs though, and if you want to pull them up to half length etc the elastic has plenty of space to go over any part of the leg, including the knee. They are truly one of, if not the most, best fitting yoga pants I have ever come across. This remains true to the important but sadly often forgotten point that not only yoga, but fitness in general, can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes. Pi yoga pants excellently embrace this.
I chose the Star Dust pair, which are a nice simple pale-greyish blue, to begin with but I will definitely be going with a brighter or patterned pair for my next order – I’ve got my eye on you Mystical Goddess. There are so many beautiful designs that it can be very hard to choose, but to start with I’d recommend going with a pair that matches your current workout tops. That way you don’t feel that you have to rush out and buy more. With most, if not all, of the designs, they’re so universal that you could wear them wandering around town as part of a chic and comfortable Boho outfit, at home doing the chores, as uber-comfy beachwear or on the mat: they’re suitable for every situation – the choice is yours!
Sure, they may seem a little expensive at $40 a pair plus $23.99 delivery to the UK, but they went from placing the order to arriving through my letterbox in just a fortnight (from California!) and with the quality being so excellent the price really isn’t that bad (especially when you compare the quality vs the price that some UK companies charge). However, when ordering to the UK it is worth noting that you will get charged a decent customs bill, so it’s probably a good idea to get a couple people together and place a group order to reduce delivery and customs charges. This is the perfect excuse for your yoga class, if you attend one, to treat themselves to a gorgeous new pair of bottoms. However, they’re still worth every penny paid and I’m definitely going to be buying another pair as soon as possible. Plus, at the bottom of this post is a 20% discount code for you to use, and it never runs out!
Pi Yoga Pants also come in Men’s, Children’s and Maternity, so there’s something for everyone. Again, this can be hard to come by when shopping for fitness or yoga wear in the UK. With the waistband being to stretchy and the material being so lovely and loose and comfortable I imagine they’d be absolutely perfect for expectant mothers, even if only as lounge pants, during all stages of the pregnancy. The children’s pairs are utterly adorable, and if the stitching is as sturdy as my pair they’ll withstand even some of the most rambunctious children’s activities, which is sure to make some happy mummies and daddies! The men’s designs are suitably simple and in subdued colours such as black. After all, I don’t know many men who would want a turquoise Save The Turtles pair personally (but to each their own!).
Most importantly, Pi Yoga Pants have a wonderfully inspiring mission. 10% of the profits from every pair sold goes towards saving the sea turtles in Bali, with the current focus being restoring coral that was destroyed by previous dynamite fishing and increased water temperature (they sent a beautiful little information postcard in the package). And they’re definitely making changes for the better because one of the islands has stopped distributing plastic straws, switching to biodegradable bamboo straws instead! You can make a difference and help the environment and loom fabulous at the same time!
The pictures I’ve used for this post are non-modified pictures to help demonstrate my yoga at the beginning of my journey. At this point, I weigh 10st 3lbs, still get easily winded, and can’t for the life of me straighten both legs in downward dog. I’ll update periodically with my progress 😊
Please feel free to use this discount code as many times as you like, and pass it on to yours friends so they can use it too! If you do use my code, tweet or Instagram me a photo; I’d love to hear from you all 🙂
