Yoga is a form of physical exercise that is quite practical, because it does not require a lot of equipment. Doing so can be anywhere, both indoors and outdoors even at home, provided you know the correct movements.
In addition to good quality mattresses, clothing is also an important consideration when doing yoga. Clothes must be comfortable so that yoga movements can be done freely. Yoga instructors and lovers, Priscilla Aliwarga provides some tips on choosing yoga clothes.
Clothing materials must have a sufficient level of elasticity. Flexibility of material is important enough for the body to move freely, especially when doing difficult and acrobatic yoga poses.
2. Not Too Tight or Loose
Clothes should fit in the body. Not too tight or too loose. Clothes that are too tight can make it difficult for you to breathe and are not comfortable when the body releases a lot of sweat.
3. Absorb sweat
Priscilla explained, despite the type of low-impact exercise, yoga makes the body sweat a lot. The slower the movement, the more energy and muscle that is used, so that sweat comes out more. For that, clothing is needed with materials that are comfortable and easily absorb sweat.

They wondered why with the strong ties between the two countries a statue of their past would be erected in Manila, at this time. He also said that the Japanese Embassy informed him that when the statue of a comfort woman was erected on private land in San Francisco in the US, that action led to the ties between San Francisco and its sister city, Osaka, to be severed. Alcovendaz noted that the story about the comfort woman statue was carried by newspapers in Japan and China highlighting the strength of the feelings around this symbol.
