Definition - What does Yoga Pants mean?

Yogapedia explains Yoga Pants

Yoga pants are typically made of light and stretchable material, such as spandex and lycra, often combined with lightweight material, such as cotton or nylon.

The most common form of yoga pants is tightly fitted with an elastic waistband. Black is still regarded as the most traditional color, although modern designs are available in a number of colors and patterns.

The modern history of yoga pants is unclear, with a number of different people credited with inventing them, according to various sources. However, it is clear that they are an ideal accessory for anyone looking to practice yoga comfortably.
