What should I wear?

When attending your first yoga class you may be worrying about what to wear, but don’t let this put you off! There are no rules when it comes to attending a yoga class. The whole purpose of yoga wear is for your own comfort and mobility. That being said, be sure to wear clothes that you can move in.

That can mean shorts, sweatpants, t-shirts, tank tops, whatever you like. Whatever the combination may be, just make sure you’re comfortable.

You should also make sure that your outfit will stay put. During the class, you will go from lying on your back to bending at the waist, and many other positions in between so you may want to avoid tops that are so loose they will fall down over your head.

What class should I start with?

My classes welcome all levels with plenty of variations offered.
