You may remember, I discovered yoga during our lockdown last March, when I was unable to run and needed a safe activity to do from home. I loved it at first, but it eventually began to aggravate my injuries so I had to stop for a time.
Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve graduated from PT! The lower back and hip issues that have been plaguing me since last winter are under finally control, and I’m able to return to my favorite activities.
I’ve been slowly increasing my run/walk intervals, and I’m excited to start doing yoga again. I miss the flexibility it cultivated, as well as the relaxation and escape from the daily grind, and I’m eager to get back to it.
As it turns out, this is perfect timing, as September is National Yoga Month!
I had fun rounding up my personal wish list along with some of my favorite Athleta pieces for yoga… or any at-home workout, really. Hopefully this post gives you a little workout inspiration… online shopping is a workout, right?
Athleta Fall Favorites
#1. Made to Move Mask 3 Pack // It’s 2020, after all, so I had to include these face masks. I have heard SUCH good things about them. Supposedly they’re some of the most comfortable and breathable you can find, and they’re adjustable too.
#2 Exhale Moonflower Jacquard Bra // I love the idea of a pretty sports bra peeking out of a boatneck, or a split-back top.
#3. Flow Top Essence Spacedye // This lightweight pullover is super soft, and the boatneck is flattering and also fun for showing off a pretty sports bra (see #2.)
#4 Salutation Stash Pocket II Embossed Tight // This Medusa Enchanted Blue is a nice alternative to black, and these pair perfectly with the Conscious Embossed Crop, although I’m more likely to pair them with something like the Essence Flow Top or Essence Spacedye Tie Back Tank.
#5. Conscious Embossed Crop // I love how this top pairs with the tights in #4. A crop silhouette keeps you cool and comfortable during hard workouts, and this fabric claims to be buttery soft.
#6. Salutation Stash Pocket II Cinch 7/8 Tights // These tights take your basic black leggings up a notch with a feminine cinch detail at the hem.
#7. Mindset Sweatshirt // This easy pullover is perfect for yoga practice or your WFH life. It’s made of Athleta’s softest fabric, appropriately named Nirvana. Bonus, the tulip-edged side hem flatters your form.
#8. Printed Mesh Racer Run Short // And because once a runner, always a runner, I also picked out these running shorts in the black camo luxe — such a fun change from the solids I normally wear.
#9. Essence Spacedye Tie Back Tank // This eco-friendly tank top is made of recycled materials and has a tie back for adjustability.
Delancey Herringbone Tights // I realized recently that all of my yoga pants are black, and I’m really drawn to this Light Asphalt color. Plus the herringbone pattern is fun and different.
Essence Flow Top // This is the solid version of the spacedye above. I love that Spring Night — so chic.
Momentum Heather Tank // This seamless tank with anti-odor technology is the perfect pairing for the racer run shorts (see #8).
Solstice Wrap // It wouldn’t be a complete wish list without a good wrap. I love the rib stitching and drapey style of this one, and it comes in 3 gorgeous neutrals.
