8 Nike Gifts for Yoga Lovers
1. Yoga Mat
Made of natural rubber that provides durable grip, the Nike Mastery yoga mat features anti-odour properties to keep it fresh during sweaty sessions. Weighing just over 3 pounds (approx. 1.4kg), it's easy to transport and pack for class. This mat comes in a standard length (approx. 180cm) and a longer version (approx. 201cm) for those who want more mat space.
2. Yoga Blocks
Yoga blocks are an essential for beginner and seasoned yoga enthusiasts alike. Nike yoga blocks are made from a dense foam with a grippy, rubber layer to help prevent slipping or sliding while using.
3. Yoga Strap
A yoga strap can help athletes achieve a deep stretch during their practice. Nike offers a 6-foot yoga strap with a rubber-coated ring to prevent the metal from clacking. The loop at the end of the strap can help in a stretching pose, or you can wrap it around your yoga mat for easy carrying.
4. Sports Bra
A well-fitted sports bra can help make a yoga devotee feel more comfortable and supported during their practice. Nike offers sports bras in light-, medium- and high-support levels. Look for design features like sweat-wicking Nike Dri-FIT materials, adjustable straps and padded or non-padded styles.
5. Tank or Short-sleeve Top
From breezy, flowy tanks to cropped, body-hugging silhouettes, Nike yoga tank tops and short-sleeve tops offer stretch and breathability to support a wide range of movements during yoga.
The Nike Luxe line of apparel features soft Nike Infinalon fabric that provides a gently compressive feel while keeping the wearer dry and cool for stretching and holding poses. Some yoga tanks also include built-in shelf bras for support.
6. Hoodie or Sweatshirt
A lightweight, comfortable hoodie or sweatshirt is great to throw on before or after yoga class. The Nike Yoga collection includes a range of styles, including cropped, fleece hoodies, woven, layered ones with heat-regulating Nike Therma-FIT technology and simple, crew-neck sweatshirts.
7. Yoga Leggings or Trousers
Wearing a stretchy, non-restrictive, high-quality pair of yoga trousers or leggings can help create a great foundation for a yoga practice. Nike yoga leggings come in mid- or high-rise variations, with sweat-wicking properties in the material.
If you think the yoga enthusiast in your life might prefer flowy trousers instead of tight leggings,
Nike yoga trousers are another style designed with performance in mind. With tapering at the ankles and a loose and roomy fit, Nike yoga trousers and joggers can double as everyday sweats.
Getting sweaty hair in the face mid-practice is one way to interrupt focus. To help prevent that from happening, consider gifting a workout headband designed to absorb sweat on the forehead, keep hair out of the face and eyes and complete an outfit for class.
