Do you ever find yourself in the middle of a yoga practice annoyed by discomfort from your attire? Having talked to hundreds of guys to find out what they look for when shopping for clothes that optimize comfort on and off the mat, we are here to give you a premium pair of ‘yoga’ shorts that are extremely comfortable, supportive, multifunctional, practical and on top of that - fit great.

While some active men seeking balance are relatively content with the yoga apparel they have, many others feel not everything is being held in place or they don't like having to wear separate articles of clothing for the lower body (i.e. compression shorts separate from their bottoms). Some have complained that the fabrics don't allow for easy movement and shared they need more breathability or their gear starts to smell from excessive sweating; Some simply said that the fit just isn't right. 

The thing about yoga is that just like with any other type of exercise, if you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good, you perform well; Why is it then so hard to find really comfortable, highly supportive and durable yoga shorts that fit well?

Experience our unique Package Protector™ built into the liner using the finest micro-mesh fabrics.  Whether you are releasing that hip tension in King Pigeon or strengthening your core in Baby Cobra, stay carefree as you won't reveal anything or require underwear in our shorts.

The best part? You don't need to rock any underwear while wearing our shorts as everything is built-in.  Enjoy our unique, 3-in 1-design featuring (1) Outer Short (2) Inner Liner (3) Package Protector™.

We’re on a mission to help active men seeking balance live longer, healthier lives.’ We’re doing this by significantly improving the experience for active men, on and off the mat. Our premium yoga shorts were designed to be worn day to night, in and on the way to your yoga studio.

Whatever your style, Brutal Buddha is here to match it. Please note our Package Protector™ will be available in black only.

 If still in doubt shoot us an email or leave a comment and we'll do our best to assist!

Whether you are after a single pair, or want all three of them, we prepared a bunch of great deals letting you customize your order. 

We're two American guys whose lives have been transformed by yoga. We're on a mission to help active men live longer, healthier lives. We're working tirelessly to bring the benefits of yoga to active men seeking balance through our innovative and eco-friendly men's yoga apparel. 

As everything is mostly done from a design and manufacturing perspective, we now need to raise funds to place a larger MOQ order and finalize our eco-friendly packaging. From there, we feel quite confident, manufacturing would take place by Dec 2019 and shipping will take place by April 2020 at the absolute latest. 

When we started Brutal Buddha in Fall 2018, we must have sketched out hundreds, if not thousands, of possible logo designs - ultimately, we realized it would be key to include something that represented longevity, as we've heard from countless guys the long-term benefits of the practice: hence, the infinity sign on the bottom.

Then, there's the top of the logo, meant to represent a hulk-like flex of the shoulders and pecs, and with that, the formation of two 'B's back to back. When we finally got the width of the lines right, the overall logo design spoke to us - it reminds us about the essence of yoga and the balance of hard work, resilience & tranquility, on and off the mat. These traits, in conjunction with following your passion, are vital components to a well-rounded life.

Risks and challenges

Our factories are located in China. Therefore, geopolitical risks exist. Secondly, if we place a factory order around Dec, factories in China slow down and shut down for many weeks during Jan/Feb, so this could push out our timeline potentially..
