If you are a person living in the year 2017, you’ve likely tried your hand at online shopping. Since e-commerce was commercialized in the early 90s, online shopping has become an industry in itself. In fact, online sales account for over 75 percent of purchases in the U.S. on average! So, what is it we’re buying on the world wide web? There are a significant number of people who are buying their clothes online (about 66 percent of all purchases in the industry).
The convenience of online shopping has changed how we find the fashions we can’t live without, from our favorite little black dress to the yoga gear we exercise in. This hardly comes as a surprise when we consider the perks of shopping online: you can access countless stores all at once, get the stuff you need shipped directly to you, and you never even have to get out of bed!
Also, thanks to the growth of the yoga industry in recent years, it is easier than ever to find high-quality yoga gear with a few simple clicks. Whether you are a yogi looking for a new pair of pants or a studio owner looking to restock your shelves with mats and blocks, the Internet is a great place to meet your yoga needs.
When you look at the yogis on YouTube and Instagram, what do you see? Flexible people in cool poses, of course, but also incredible-looking outfits! As you’ve scrolled through pages of fashionable looks, you’ve probably wondered: where can I get something like that? Well believe it or not, the answer is staring right at you - on the internet.
Online, you can view a wide variety of yoga gear, from clothes to mats and other accessories, from retailers around the world. Check out thousands of different yoga pants, each with their own style, color, cut and fit. Find the perfect yoga shirt for any type of activity or any type of weather. Thanks to online shopping, it is easier than ever before to find the look that suits you--even if it’s in a shop halfway across the country.
But what if you don’t know what style you want? No worries; sign up for a subscription box service online! There, you can sample different materials and styles (all of the highest quality, of course) until you find the look - or looks - that makes you feel confident, cool, and ready to step up to the mat.
Save Big, Buy Wholesale
Whether you are a new yogi or a veteran looking for some new equipment, you’re likely to run into the same problem: yoga gear can get expensive! This is especially true if you are looking for high quality gear that will last you some time and stand up to the rigors of a regular yoga practice.
Unless you have plenty of cash to spare, you can’t always spend hundreds of dollars on your athletic attire. But what else can you do? After all, you need proper clothes and equipment for your practice.
Thankfully, the internet has stepped up again to save us! Wholesale shopping, or buying directly from manufacturers rather than retailers, can be a budget-friendly way to get the quality yoga gear you need. There are many outlets or warehouses that set up online stores, where they can provide yogis like you with clothes, mats, fitness balls, and more at steep discounts. You can stay fashionable and fit without hurting your wallet - what could be better?
Online shopping can be great for yoga instructors or studio owners, too! With wholesale websites, you can find clothes, mats, blocks, and blankets at low prices - which means you can afford to buy much more. Outfit your studio with equipment so your new students have something to practice with. Have towels handy for the folks stepping out of a bikram yoga class. Buying wholesale is a great solution for yogis who need to get the most bang for their buck.
The rise of online shopping has unquestionably changed the world--and not just because we can buy groceries from the couch. Getting the gear you need for a new hobby or fitness routine is easier than ever, and that means more people are branching out and trying new things. Ready to take on 2017 with the best yoga fear out there? It’s only a few clicks away!
