Best Yoga Pants: Marika Jet Set Legging

We'd like these chic yoga pants even without any extras, and the hidden pocket on the side for your smartphone makes them even better. Their high-rise design allows you to stretch comfortably without awkwardly tugging at your clothes while the sliver of print adds a little flair. You can get them in three designs, but we think the "Graystone Faded Roses" print with the white or black option of the sports bra above makes a stylish combo.

Pick up this standout yoga mat from Anthropologie for a more comfortable and cute practice. Made from recycled tree rubber and dyed with water-based inks, its an eco-friendly, biodegradable find. It also comes with a carrying strap and has extra cushion for enhanced stability. After a few uses, toss it in the washer and it'll be ready for your next workout.

Resistance bands are another useful tool while practicing yoga. This set comes with five color-coded bands you can use together or separately.

Try black, which adds 22 pounds, or you can double up by snapping multiple bands to the handles. When you're finished, store them inside the included bag to keep your home gym tidy.
