One WHIRL yoga leggings are specifically designed for maximum comfort, patent-pending design for biofeedback for body alignment, and special contouring fabric concepts for flattering morning-to-evening fashion.
Originally concepted by a longtime, omni-discipline, daily yoga student as a way to maintain a turned-out knee in Warrior I and II poses, the alignment design is intended to give the wearer a perceptual body positioning through regular usage and brain recognition. While not a cure for posturing problems, the alignment can be used referentially for placement and sight lines.
The leggings can be worn all the way to the toes, with markings on the ankle and calves. The covering of the heel is useful for yoga postures requiring heel holding for balance, such as tree, dancer’s pose, and straight leg rotation. It also alleviates the need for socks, which can constrict sensitive toes.
The leggings are high-waisted, and are meant to be worn all the way to the bottom rib, the with seam resting on the hips. This high length is for maximum warmth, as well as encouragement for more perfect posture. It is not intended to be tight, or worn as a girdle or “sucking-in” composition.
The leggings are white-based instead of black. Throughout fashion history, women have been told to wear “basic black”, supposedly with the intention of minimizing their space. Our uniquely-designed leggings take the opposite approach with a white backing, which creates a flattering, contouring effect with a contemporary fashion accent.
The leggings are hand-sewn and are designed to keep the body aligned with chakras in mind.
