Until now, the words ‘Nike’ and ‘yoga’ were scarcely heard in the same breath. While the world’s #1 sportswear brand is a staple in most sports, it’s only recently that there’s been a shift into the yoga-sphere.
Nike spotted a gap, addressing what it perceives as the problem that yoga has gained a reputation of being exclusive, for people who have the time, money and natural ability to enjoy yoga - ‘for yogis’.
It launched Nike Yoga to ‘democratise yoga to serve the yogi in every athlete’. As well as its focus on inclusive yoga, Nike is focussing on showing how yoga makes you a better athlete, with storytelling of how its diverse roster of athletes use yoga as part of their training.
The collection’s message is clear: "We believe in the power of yoga to create unity, build inner strength and unleash greatness. Whoever you are, whatever you're striving for, this is your space to make yoga yours.” Bold and appealing.
So, if you’re searching for your next piece of yoga gear, should you give this brand new range a whirl? You’ve come to the right place. Before you start shopping, read our in-depth Nike Yoga review and get all the facts. Here’s everything you need to know about the range.
NIKE WOMEN'S YOGA COLLECTION
The search for the perfect yoga gear is life-long. When you start your yoga journey, finding the right products helps you to practise confidently wherever you are. As part of the new range, there’s a rainbow-variety of choices available.
Nike Infinalon: The Nike Yoga Fabric
Yogis know one fundamental truth: comfort is everything. When you’re mid-session, the last thing you want is to be distracted by the type of clothes that you’re wearing.
Fortunately, Nike wants to give you ‘a full sensory yoga experience’. The collection is centred around the brand new Nike Infinalon material, at once infinitely comfortable and incredibly stretchy.
Made from uniform threads, you can expect zero distractions when you move from pose to pose effortlessly. While you might think that soft is a synonym for weak, think again. The Infinalon material is strong at every feat. It’s thinner than elastane but boasts twice the strength.
As if that weren’t enough, this unique design is the ideal way to keep yourself cool. The style of the knit allows the fabric to be breathable. As you engage in your yoga sessions, you can be sure that you won’t overheat or become uncomfortable. Put simply, it’s bliss.
