WHAT TO WEAR
When choosing your clothes for yoga it’s important to wear something that you’re able to easily move in – this does not mean jeans or jeggings! You’re also going to be moving your body in a lot of different ways so it’s important for you (and your instructor to see) that you maintain proper alignment. For this reason, baggy clothing is not an option.
Depending on the type of yoga that you’re practising, you may find that you’re sweating a lot. In case this does happen, instead of relying on the back of your forearm to wipe away the sweat, always bring a small towel. It’s always a good idea to bring a water bottle as well to help you stay cool and hydrated throughout and after class. If you don’t want to have your clothes saturated in sweat after your class (who does?!) wear clothes that dry quickly and keep moisture away. You also want the fabric that you’re wearing to stretch easily, making it easier for you to move in class.
In most studios you are required to bring your own yoga mat. Although it might be tempting to hire one from the studio you’re attending (if available) if you’re going to attend yoga regularly (and trust us you’ll want to after trying it) it’s worth buying your own mat. These come in a range of colours and thickness levels.
