Niyama Sports Leggings Review

What is Niyama Sports?

Niyama was created and born in California by founder Harald Wester, who has a passion for practicing and teaching yoga. Harold took his 20 years of experience in the textile and printing industry to create the perfect activewear through a combination between high quality fabric, unique and organic prints and comfortability. Niyama is now based in Germany and recently held a Kickstarter campaign to bring Niyama leggings to US consumers.

I enrolled in Niyama’s 500 program where Niyama partners with instructors and offer them a pair of leggings for free! Instructors are required to promote and share their review of the product on social media.

I chose the Zentangle design because 1) it’s beautiful and 2) hand drawn. It reminds me of lululemon’s Florence hand drawn print. I ordered and received my Zentangle leggings within 6 days. They arrived in a neatly wrapped package along with an angel charm and thank you card signed by the team! Already I am loving Niyama!

I quickly opened the package and although they advise to wash the leggings first, out of sheer excitement, I decided to slip them on for a few poses.


Niyama Leggings Review

#1 Size: Per their size chart, I went with a SMALL. It fit me perfectly! I would say they run TTS (true to size). I am a size 6 in lululemonf or sizing reference.

#2 Style:  As of now Niyama Sports only offers long length pants.

#3 Inseam:  The inseam for their pants fall at the ankle and is 28″ long.

#4 Rise: The rise is standard and falls below the navel. There is a seam in the front and back rise of the pants.

#5 Waistband: The leggings come with a standard waistband with “no slip waist” technology lining the inside of the waistband (lingerie silicone strips to prevent slippage). The tall waistband measures 3.5″.

#6 Fabric: Niyama is made from durable and high quality Italian fabric. The fabric is manufactured in Cologne, Germany. The feel of the fabric is very similar to Werkshop. I would say it fits like a second skin. They are dry wicking material. The leggings are backed in white but they are 100% opaque.
