Do you need underwear for Yoga

When practicing yoga, you can take off your underwear, or choose to wear sports underwear, chest patches and chest pads. Don’t wear thick underwear with steel rings. Because many movements in yoga and Pilates are completed on the ground. When we climb down or lie on our backs on the mat, our chests are likely to be squeezed out and leaked from any place. In this way, the steel ring may get stuck in some glands of our chests, and there will be many squeezing and twisting movements, which will also press any part of our chests. This is not appropriate for our chests in the long run.
