Fashion Designer Trina Turk’s 5 Yoga Essentials

This yogi designer shows us what's in her yoga bag—and what she just can't practice without.

Women’s fashion designer Trina Turk is no stranger to the mat—she regularly does yoga, Pilates, and barre classes. So it makes sense that she brought her love of movement to her clothing line and started making activewear this year. “Everything we produce is upbeat and happy,” says the Los Angeles local. “If I’m not feeling that way, it comes through in the collections, so I try to remain levelheaded. Exercise and yoga help me maintain my calm.” Here, Turk shares what she carries to class—along with her own fab leggings and tanks, of course.

Water Bottle

Reusable water bottles are better for the environment than plastic, says Turk. Among her favorites, Sigg’s Fabulous 0.6-liter bottle: “I like the form-follows-function simplicity of the plain aluminum bottle.” $23,

Yoga Socks

To prevent slipping on the mat, Turk uses yoga socks. Try ToeSox’s Full Toe Low Rise Grip Socks.

“Women should have multiple pairs of sunglasses—nerdy, classic, oversized, and a cateye style,” she says. Turk’s current go-to? Karen Walker styles like the Faithful. $250,
