5 Best Halloween Costumes for Doing Yoga In

It’s that time of year again! A time filled with spooky fun, crunchy leaves, and delicious candy (fun sized only, please).

Below are our five favorite DIY Halloween costumes for you and all the spooky, Halloween-loving yogis in your life!

*Please note that all of the costume ideas below have been carefully curated for the utmost comfort and flexibility in case you need to strike a yoga pose – as we at Barefoot Yoga often do.

1. Skeleton


We love this cute and classic look! Start by throwing on a pair of black leggings and a long-sleeved black top. Then, click here for awesome DIY instructions on how to easily add the bones! This costume can be used time and again for a comfy and cute Halloween look. However, if you’d prefer not to paint on a beloved set of yoga clothes, you can also try this DIY method, which only involves cutting up an old tee instead of painting directly on fabric.

 2. “Downward Facing” Dog


Puns! Who doesn’t love ‘em? Only people who wouldn’t dress up as one, that’s who!

What’s needed in this costume, you ask? Your favorite leggings, top, wrap (if it’s chilly, which it probably is) and a stuffed dog. Step 1? Affix stuffed dog upside down on shirt using a strap set up or glue. Step 2? Done.

 3. Black Cat


Me-ow! With the recent popularity of feline yoga classes, cats and yogis have never paired better. Check out this slideshow, which has a variety of different cat costume makeup looks! And, if you’re feeling extra frisky (pun intended) pick up some cat ears and a tail from your local costume shop!

4. Celebrity leaving yoga class


Head down, fast walk, sunglasses on, yoga mat bag over shoulder. Ideal if your main focus is to slip unnoticed through a crowd of festive and be-costumed people (perhaps to get home for scary movie watching) rather than join them.

5. Marathon runner


Comfiness alert! Throw on your fav yoga pants, some medals from assorted spelling bee and singing competitions from your childhood, and you’re good to go. (For extra authenticity, print out a marathon bib online to pin to your top!)

Costume Modification: If you are actually a marathon runner, please proceed using your own medals and ignore our suggestions.


Have a happy and safe Halloween, yogis!

The Studio Collection – stylish and stretchy stripes

Inkscape Pattern – beautiful hand-dyed style


The new Inkscape pattern, available in the Asana Bra, Mindful Tank and Hatha Legging, is a gorgeous and unique style for winter. Get all of the pieces to wear together, or choose one as an eye-catching accent piece for your yoga wardrobe. The sueded cotton of the Asana Bra and Hatha Legging is luxuriously soft and smooth, with a hint of Lycra to keep moving and stretching with you.

The Studio Nomad – cozy comfort for chilly days


In a soft, cozy blend of cotton, poly, rayon and Lycra, the new Studio Nomad pant is sure to become your favorite for lounging at home or a casual day out and about. The fit is comfortably snug through the thighs and loose below the knee, and the thin striped skirt elevates these pants to a new level of style.

Yoga Poses for Morning, Noon, and Night: Starting (and ending!) Your Day in the Best Way Possible



What an awesome stretch to start the day! If you’ve tried it before, you know how satisfying cat-cow pose it. It helps to stretch out your back and abdomen muscles, while still being a calming stretch that helps you start your day in a relaxed and restored way.



Another great stretch for the beginning of the day! This will help wake you up and do away with some of that morning stiffness.



You’ve stretched out your back, now time for the front! Camel pose is a great way to open up your chest, torso, and hip flexors, readying you for the day ahead.




Practicing warrior one midday, as well as transitioning into warrior two and three, is a great way to energize the middle of your day! Whether you’ve got a case of afternoon sleepiness, or your day has been a whirlwind that doesn’t show signs of slowing down, practicing some warrior poses will help to refresh, and refocus your mind and allow you to access a renewed sense of personal empowerment for a wonderful afternoon. (These are also ideal poses if you don’t have your mat with you!)






Ah, the time to wind down, relax, and cozy up. These three poses are a great way to get your body and mind into a bedtime state of mind. Upward dog provides a deep and relaxing stretch, helping to work out the tensions accumulated throughout the day. Try doing it on your squishiest mat or on your rug for optimum comfort.



This is another pose that will help to stretch you out and wind you down! And, it’s another pose ideally used with rug, mat, or blanket (depending on the level of support needed) placed underneath your back for comfort.



This pose is the closest you’re going to get to actually laying down in bed, so why not do it right before bedtime? Take as many deep breaths as you need, and help yourself wind down and let go of any burdens from the day that are holding you down. Allow them to be released and make way for the new day to come.
