A while back, I was approached by Onzie to review their current line of clothing. I’d reviewed their items in the past and loved them, but they are definitely more yoga focused and I wanted to give them a review as yoga clothes. So, I reached out to my favorite yogi and asked her to check them out for me!
When Erika asked me to guest review for Onzie, I was thrilled! As a yoga teacher and practitioner, I was already familiar with their fun and vibrant line of pants and had a pair I already loved. I’m also a runner, in case you were wondering what our common link was!
I opted to step away from my favorite capri, to try something totally different. I chose the gypsy pant as they seemed like an option that would be comfortable to teach in, but that I could then wear right out of the studio to a lunch meeting or to do some grocery shopping. Being able to grocery shop in off hours in yoga pants is one of the best perks of being a yoga teacher!
The outfit looks great! I’ve received many compliments on the pants and I love the pattern! It’s bright, fun and uplifting!
The gypsy pants have a high waistline, which is great coverage for the midsection. The waistband also rolls down if you prefer a lower waisted pant. The pants are loose and flowy, with ties at the bottom to keep them on your calves. They are breathable, comfortable, and they are versatile for both in studio, and out of studio.
The bra provides a little less coverage than I would prefer (34C), but provides a medium amount of support. It would be great for a flow class, but any higher intensity moving – I teach a yoga and weights class that has sections of cardio/jumping that would require more support for those with more than a handful. I tested it running too, and the impact/bouncing was a little too much.
The Glossy Flow Tank Top is also very comfortable. (I’m noticing a pattern! Every Onzie piece that I’ve tried so far always meets my comfort standards!) As someone constantly on the move and typically sweating, comfort is key. The tank is great for teaching and demonstrating in, but is not inversion approved. The tank has a great hem at the bottom that almost “weights” it down to hold in place when you’re standing, or walking around. However, the inverse happens when you go upside down. Paired with a higher waist pant, you can keep your belly covered though! And of course, as a yoga teacher, I’ll remind you to keep engaging your bandahs so your belly is pulled in nice and tight anyway!
These are all great low-intensity yoga (Yes, there is such a thing as higher intensity yoga – think yoga sculpt or rocket yoga) items, and fantastic to and from the studio pieces. The quality and the feel of the fabrics are top notch, and you’ll love the way they feel just as much as they look!
