I came to Billie Whitehouse's sun-soaked lower Manhattan apartment for a brand new yoga experience. I was going to swap out my favorite pair of Outdoor Voices leggings for Billie's unique invention: A pair of "smart" leggings that were designed to communicate with me throughout my entire practice, sending me signals when my form needed a nudge and when I should focus on a specific body part.
Billie greeted me with a huge smile and a hug. She had rolled out two yoga mats—one for me, and one for her—and handed me a pair of the Nadi X pants, the latest invention to come out of her company, Wearable X.
"The goal with the pants is to connect you with your bod by drawing attention to the parts of the body with subtle pulses; the pants indicate the areas to focus on," she explained as I examine the pants. "As someone who doesn't consider myself 'very good' at yoga, the guidance of knowing where to focus was the reason for creating this new line. Ready?"
Intrigued, I slipped them on and started flowing.
