After reading all the positive comments on the Oprah’s Favorite Things 2016 gift guide and seeing it was helpful to many of you, I want to share another post in my Holiday Promo series: the Manduka 2016 Holiday Gift Guide with you.
Manduka is well-known for their durable good quality mats and the use of natural, renewable materials in their other products. They recently released their holiday gift guide which I’m super excited to share with you because they have an awesome collection of really hot yoga clothes for women which will sizzle up the dreary cold winter months ahead.
Because there is so much we can all absorb at once, I am splitting this guide into two parts so this post is Part 1. Stay tuned for Post 2 very soon.
This Manduka Holiday collection is based on the style of 6 personality types and I’m sure that we all know a person that falls into each type.
To get more info on each piece or purchase, simply click on the images and you will get redirected to the Manduka website. If you want to see the full catalogue and some yoga clothing for men (which I omitted), check it out here.
Gifts for The Free Spirit in Your Life
The Raisin Libertine Bralette with the Hana Print Essential Capri Legging
This classy neutral mauve bralette has a four-way stretch to allow absolute freedom of movement while comfortably supporting your bust. Perfect for hot yoga and rigorous Ashtanga classes where you don’t want to wear a revealing bra, but you still want to look chic and feminine.
Pair it with these floral Hana Print Essential capri leggings and style your hair in a ballerina bun to recreate a French Parisian yogi look.
The Black Adorn Crop Top
You can never go wrong with wearing black and white. The Japanese Shibori design adds some oomph to this timeless look. Loose fitting and made from organic cotton for lots of breathability and eco-chic style. I’m all for it ladies.
The Raspberry Heather Pink Wrap Up Bralette
Hug and flatter your feminine silhouette with this dusty raspberry rose bralette. With the four-way stretch, soft-double fabric, and crossover straps which never slip off your shoulders (finally relief!), the sky’s the limit in your yoga practice.
The Raisin Flux Legging
Be wild and carefree with these dancer-inspired form-fitting raisin flux leggings! The detailed hem ties and contoured waist are specifically designed to support you during intense and freestyle flows with graceful expression and movement throughout your practice. A must-have for the ballerina in you.
Gifts for The Sophisticate in Your Life
The Kanoko Essential Legging
Be unstoppable and power through those backbends in these fierce electric blue leggings.
Pair them with the Kanoko Y Back Bra for a matchy yet edgy effect.
The Black Halter Bra
A necessity if you ask me. The Black Halter Bra is a must-have to pair with those extravagant yoga pants to balance the look out. Also, the strap configuration stays put so you never have to readjust it during your practice, and the mesh inserts air out the sweat. The high neckline piece is stylish AND functional at the same time. Yay!
The Black High Line Legging
Another essential. The Black High Line high-rise legging is a versatile piece that can be worn with any bralette, halter top, and tee. Slimming and figure-flattering for all body types.
The Surihaku Sediment Bra and Surihaku Legging
While the name of the bra is easily forgettable, this smashing avant-garde look is not! Pair it with the matching snuggly fit classic rise Surihaku Legging for the ultimate trendy look. You’re guaranteed to get double-takes from the guys and gals alike!
The Surihaku Cami
The Surihaku Legging will also go great with the Surihaku Cami. Just look at that sexy cut-out!
You can do without the bra so you have total freedom of movement (he he). I would so wear this piece for a night out. LOVE IT!
The Surihaku Jacket
Stay warm while looking cool with yet another Surihaku piece. This form-fitting jacket has fitting sleeves with thumb-holes and front pockets with zip closures so you don’t lose your keys.
Gifts for The Athlete in Your Life
The Sakura Essential Capri Legging
These figure flattering pants are not only gorgeous but I bet you that when you’re wearing them, you’ll be extra motivated to go work out or do some hardcore power yoga. Sweat like crazy and still look gorgeous while you’re at it.
Oh I almost forgot: there’s a built-in media pocket for your music and a double-layer gusset to keep you dry down there.
The Sediment Melange Grey Knee Hugger
Upon first look, this pair of capris may look grey and boring. But looks can be deceiving. Take a look behind! Do you see the black fabric sewn across the bum and right above the knees? Well, this unexpectedly adds a touch of intriguing spice to an otherwise ordinary piece.
Great choice for those days when you want to dress down, but you don’t want to feel entirely plain.
The Kosha Hoodie
Breathable, lightweight, cozy, warm, and casual. Great piece to wear when you’re in and out of your gym or yoga classes.
The Mazarine Y Back Cami
I really gotta give some credit to Manduka for the really cool names of their pieces and colors. Just reading the word “Mazarine” gets me all excited as it sounds so exotic…or just Italian. 😉 Stand tall and proud in this skinny-fit sporty cami.
Stay firmly grounded and present with these eclectic eco-friendly yoga mat towels. Made from silicone nubs, recycled bottles and and dyes free from AZO, lead, and heavy-metals, you can practice your flow to your heart’s content while making a difference to the environment.
What are the pieces that catch your eye? Did you find this list useful in finding the perfect gift for yourself or your yogi friends?
Stay tuned for Part 2 of this guide which will be posted very soon!
