As a yoga teacher, I live in yoga clothes. I teach classes, film videos, run errands, and do almost everything else wearing capri leggings and tank tops. I’m currently 14 weeks post-baby and working to shed some extra pregnancy weight so I haven’t bought any new outfits in the last year. When YogaClub reached out to me about trying their yoga clothing subscription box, I jumped at the opportunity to find some quality gear that I can feel good in as a new momma!

WHAT IS IT?
YogaClub is a monthly subscription box for yoga gear. It’s like having an online personal shopper. They handpick workout clothes for you based on your style and preferences then ship the box to you every month. What makes it special is you get these name brand yoga apparel for a fraction of the retail price!
There are 3 packages to choose from:
The Chakra – $45/month ($100 retail value)
The Karma – $69/month ($140 retail value)
The Guru – $79/month ($160 retail value) – This is what I got!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After setting up your account, you pick one of the 3 packages. You answer their Style Quiz to let them what your preferences are for styles, patterns, colors, and size. They will then “curate” your box and ship it to you. If there is anything that doesn’t work for you, you can exchange it. You may also pause or cancel your membership anytime.
WHAT’S IN MY BOX?
My box is THE GURU which costs $79 and contains 3 premium items. If you’ve been watching my yoga videos, you know I tend to stick to solid/neutral colors and simple patterns for my leggings and tops. Every now and then, I’ll wear something in a bright color or with a fun print. Here are the 3 pieces I received:
- Electric Yoga – Faded Legging in Gray (Medium) – $88 retail price
- Teeki – Rainbow Priestess Hot Pant in Coffee (Medium) – $72 retail price
- Satva – Kumari Cowl Sweater in Black (Small) – $64 retail price
I must say that you do get amazing value with this package. The retail price of the Electric Yoga leggings alone ($88) is greater than that of the entire box of 3 items ($79)! To be completely honest, I think the individual pieces are too expensive and I normally would not purchase these unless they were on sale. With this package, each product ends up being under $30 and that is a significant discount.
Satva – Kumari Cowl Sweater in Black (Small)
The tag says it is made from organic cotton and the company promotes non-GMO toxin-free production. I love cowl neck sweaters! This is lovely and fits beautifully on the neckline. The style is more loose and flowy which would be perfect for layering in the fall and winter. (Note: I live in the Midwest) The soft material does not itch, unlike other thick sweaters. I also like the simple button details on both sides. This can even work for maternity wear (here’s hoping for baby #2 next year! 🙂
Electric Yoga – Faded Legging in Gray (Medium)
Tag says it is made of 55% nylon, 33% polyester, 12% spandex. The fabric feels very stretchy yet surprisingly durable. It is heavy enough to wear during the spring and fall but it feels too warm for me in the summer. Even though the material is slightly thicker than what I’m used to for yoga pants, it is still very comfortable. I enjoy teaching and practicing in these. You can not see through the pants, which is a problem for other leggings and tights. It does fit very snugly on the thighs, hips, and crotch area. It’s not an issue for me but it might be for others who prefer less revealing clothes. The design is simple but not boring. I appreciate the simple detailed stitching/pattern on the side of the leg and the “ombre” effect of the black and gray colors.
Teeki – Rainbow Priestess Hot Pant in Coffee (Medium)
The tag says the pant is made in the USA and made mostly from recycled plastic bottles in California. This is probably my favorite of all 3 pieces. The fabric feels amazing! It is so comfortable and it truly is like second skin. Recycled plastic bottles? Who knew?!! 🙂 It feels much more lightweight than the Electric Yoga leggings so I will probably still wear it in the spring and summer. Be warned though, if you are really looking at it in harsh lights, it is a tad see-through in the back. I didn’t feel self-conscious during yoga but you do need to wear the right underwear for this one! I love the fun detail print on the right leg. I also appreciate the wide waistband that makes it stay put while you’re flowing through poses.
FINAL THOUGHTS – As with any subscription box, there are pros and cons. Overall, I had a great experience communicating with the company and trying out the products. I feel you get a lot of bang for your buck because you get high quality clothes at a huge discount. I’m guessing subsequent boxes will be hit or miss but it’s not a problem because you can exchange items you don’t like. Here are a few more details to help you decide if the YogaClub membership is right for you:
This is for you if:
- You like the element of surprise that comes with online shopping. They curate the box for you so you can’t pick out the actual items for your box.
- You enjoy discovering and trying out new brands.
- You follow fashion and tend to wear on-trend pieces.
- You need/want new yoga/workout clothes on a regular basis.
- You favor expensive name-brand yoga apparel but at a discounted price.
- You are too busy to do the shopping yourself.
- You don’t enjoy going to stores and trying on clothes.
This is not for you if:
- You can’t deal with the hassle of returning/exchanging purchases. There’s a chance you might not like the items in your box. They let you exchange it for something that you will like so it is essentially risk-free.
- You are a minimalist who only wants a few quality pieces that you can wear for a long time.
- You have a set style and don’t feel the need to constantly update your wardrobe.
- You prefer shopping for yourself and trying on clothes before buying them.
