Nike Dropped Its First Collection Made Specifically for Yoga

If you love Nike and yoga, then you've probably repped the swoosh during a flow. But the brand has never actually had a collection that was designed specifically for yoga—until now, that is.

The brand just dropped the Nike Yoga Collection as part of its Nike Training line, with men's and women's options made to accommodate all the twisty, bendy movements of yoga. (BTW, if you haven't checked out the new Nordstrom x Nike collection yet, you're missing out.)

The new clothes have features that make them optimal for the practice, no matter which kind of class you're taking. The new Ribbed Yoga Shorts have Nike's HyperCool mesh, making them key for hot yoga. If you want extra coverage for downward dog or handstand, you can go with the Ribbed Yoga Tank which has a high neckline. The loose and flowy Yoga Training Pullover Top looks cozy enough to go from restorative yoga to bed. (Related: I Tested the Magical Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% and Reached a Decade-Long Running Goal)

To kick off the collection, Nike released a campaign with top athletes, highlighting that yoga is a "secret weapon" among the super fit. The company tapped sports stars like WNBA player Alana Beard and U.S. track Paralympian Scout Bassett to model the clothes. Alongside the new collection, Nike has added new a "Enhance Your Training with Yoga" collection of workouts in the Nike Training App. They're grouped together based on goal—flexibility, strength, etc. (Before trying them, check out these beginner yoga poses you're probably doing wrong and find out how to fix them.)

The Nike Yoga Collection is already available on the Nike website and in stores, so you can check it out now if you're in the market for new yoga wear.
