Is Just Doing Yoga Enough?
Maybe? Maybe not!
It all depends on what your bodies need and what your goals are. Personally, I don't believe in "one size fits all." Doing just one type of exercise is not enough. Think about it this way. A healthy and well balanced nutritious diet includes six main food groups. We don't eat just one or two food groups, neither should we be doing one kind of workout. Runners and hikers have strong legs, but they tend to have tight hips and quads. Dancers and yogis are known for their flexibilities or excess range of motion, but they don't lift weight to strengthen muscles. Yoga is my main exercise (asana portion of it), and I find cardio workouts and strength trainings compliment it well. Diversifying the workout gives me a more balanced fitness regimen.

Fashion trends come and go (and come and go), but there are some things that will never go out of style. One of them is the timeless animal print. Animal print leggings are more popular this season than ever. You can find their traces everywhere. Among them, Leopard has to be the most often seen print. In addition to that, cheetah, python / snake and zebra prints are also well liked. To prove how popular animal print leggings are this season, I list 21 pairs from brands I like and / or follow closely here. Even though I don't own most leggings I share today, I hope to shed some light of them based on my experiences of the brands.
Note: The list below is based on the alphabetical order of the brand.
First off, Athleta Leopard Elation Ultra High Rise Tight in Powervita. This is the first and the only (so far) animal print legging I purchased (kept) this season. Stay tune for the upcoming review!
Overall Rating - 9.8 / 10
PROS / Niyama Sol Malbec Rib Knit Barefoot Legging is made with eco-friendly RPET fabric. It is lightweight, four-way stretch, breathable, moisture wicking and fast dry. The tummy tucking waistband is comfortable and pinch-free.
CONS / I wish it comes with a shorter length for petite girls. Since I am only 5'2", unless I wear it over the heel or there is extra fabric bunching at the ankle.
BOTTOM LINE / I love the performance, quality and fit of Niyama Sol Malbec Rib Knit Barefoot Legging. It covers all the needs from yoga, gym workouts to water activities. It shapes and lifts all the right places of the body, and the flat waistband keeps everything tucked in.
Niyama Sol has been one of my favorite activewear brands since I met her in late 2016. I continue purchasing their leggings whenever I see the new prints I like. Joplin Endless Legging is one of my most recent purchase. Please visit the Niyama Sol to read the full reviews of other Niyama Sol leggings.
The legging is made in China.
