What To Wear On A Yoga Retreat

Going to a yoga retreat? These are the essentials you should pack.

I was lucky to head to Kripalu Center in the Berkshires for a long weekend full of yoga. While I was sick for most of it, I was still able to participate in some more relaxed yoga and workshops. I was happy that I packed some great essentials that kept me warm in the chilly Western Massachusetts air.


I arrived on a Friday in my Prana Ashley leggings, Mena sweater and beanie. I wore the fleece-lined beanie anytime I went outside. We took some great pictures of the snow topped grounds.

The prana leggings are the ultimate wardrobe staple. They’re not only great for travel and working out but also dressed up with boots. I find them to be the perfect length hitting right below the ankle and the rise is right at the waistline, preventing them from falling down. I’m really enjoying pants that are at a traditional height instead of low-rise. I love being able to flow in yoga class without pulling my pants up every time I come back to tadasana.

The sweater is also fleece lined but it is not clunky at all. I find it to be very slimming. I not only travel in it but I’ve work it out with boots and have gotten many compliments on it. I really like how I can stay warm and look put together at the same time. In New England, I find this hard to do!


I was so excited to wear my printed Soybu Allegro leggings on my first full day at Kripalu. I wore them to a morning flow class, a dance session and to a kritan session that evening. The thick waistband is comfortable and flattering. The fabric has a great stretch to it without feeling like they are becoming looser as the day goes on.

I paired my floral printed leggings with a great tank top and a Lena Wrap. The tank top has a built in shelf bra, scrunched detailing in the front midline and is long enough to cover my waistband, making it really comfortable. I also enjoyed the thickness of the fabric, where it feels like you are truly covered without being heavy. The Soybu cardigan is light, long and has thumbholes. I wore it the entire day, except for the sweaty dance class.

Although I went on a yoga retreat, I recommend these clothes for not only yoga but for ski trips and winter getaway in general. I love having a go-to packing list so I can jump on any travel opportunity!
