Socks for Yoga and Pilates


Why Wear Them

If you are concerned about hygiene, toe and nonskid socks provide a great solution for mat exercises, such as yoga and Pilates, that are normally done barefoot.

Look for socks that have a nonslip sole. Ideally they should be made at least in part from organic cotton for extra breathability.

There are many different kinds of socks for yoga and Pilates. Some are regular socks that simply have a nonskid bottom. Others cover the foot but leave cut outs for the toes. Yet others are like "foot mittens" that are shaped just like like your foot with a separate space for each of your toes.
