What kind of clothing do you need to wear to a yoga class? Do I need to bring a mat?

Question by I AM WHAT I AM!: What kind of clothing do you need to wear to a yoga class? Do I need to bring a mat?
I’m taking a beginning class. I was planning on wearing sophies sneakers and a tank top with my hair pulled back is that okay? Also I was wondering what to expect for the first time… I don’t care for rolling around on the floor and getting some kind of staff lol

Sounds good. & Just add some short leggings. Anything you can stretch in & feel comfortable is recommended. šŸ™‚

& Usually you bring your own mat, unless they supply them.

  1. Some places provide mats, but they are very cheap at TJMaxx so just buy one there. Wear comfortable clothing that stretches. You won’t be auditioning for cirque du soleil anytime soon.

  2. wear something comfortable and tight, but loose so u can breath. what u have said is great in my opinion. i never been to a yoga class, but i suggest u go and watch some yoga videos on youtube so u know what to expect. i hope this helps šŸ™‚ have fun at ur class.

  3. Congratulations on starting your yoga class! It’s a beginner’s class your instructor will know what to start you with. Try not to expect too much – it’s really not as scary as you think. Just go with the flow and trust your teacher and yourself. šŸ™‚

    I would recommend wearing a sports bra under your tank top and some capri or bootcut leggings for better freedom of movement. Bring a hoodie in case you get cold during relaxation. You’ll be lying on your back at the end of class so you may want to be able to loosen your hair or move your ponytail up so it is not directly underneath the back of your head.

    You’ll be in your bare feet for yoga so it is good to bring your own mat for personal and sanitary reasons. Also shows that you’re dedicated because you’ve invested in your own mat. They are very inexpensive at TJMaxx and Marshalls. I always bring a small towel and a water bottle with me too.

    Enjoy the experience and stick with it! Too many people quit after their first day because it’s something new and different to them. Yoga is such a great way to get movement, exercise, and relaxation all in one class – picture it as a gift to yourself! Good luck and have fun!

  4. I concur with the views expressed by Yogurt Gi. Besides bring your own water bottle and your own
    mat and please do not share it with others only from hygiene point of view. Good luck and God
    bless. Cheers! :o)
