Scottsdale is a yoga aficionado’s paradise. We haven’t counted the number of studios but we know they’re almost as prolific as Starbucks.

It’s important that what you wear is not only comfortable but moves with you, doesn’t ride up and doesn’t expose certain body parts when you’re doin’ the downward dog. We’ve rounded up what we consider the stores with the highest quality yoga wear, both here in Scottsdale and online.

Lucy

Lucy is based in Alameda, Calif. but REI carries the line as does Athleta at Kierland Commons. They also offer online ordering at lucy.com.

From a look at the website’s “What’s New” section we see they’re offering some cute muscle tanks and a lot of non-athletic stuff. Dig deeper into the website, however, and you’ll

While it's cooler than in weeks past, the high today in Scottsdale is expected to reach 113 degrees. Another excessive heat warning is in effect. Yikes!
