Since you’re ready to begin, you’re probably wondering exactly what you’ll need when you start. Yoga doesn’t require much and with a few key essentials, you’ll be ready to hit the mat and discover the many benefits yoga has to offer.
3 Things you Need When You Start Yoga
Yoga requires stretching the body and the more comfortable your clothing is, the better your chances are of getting the most out of your practice. Yoga pants are all the rage both on the mat and off and there are countless styles to fit everyone’s unique taste. A form fitting tank or comfortable t-shirt is all you need on top. That’s it. Yoga is practiced barefoot, so you won’t need to invest in any fancy shoes. Simple. Just like the practice itself.
Yoga mats provide a thin, non-slip surface for you to practice on and are best used on a smooth floor. There are a variety of mats to choose from with a basic mat running about $20. There are also eco-friendly mats made out of bamboo, hemp, jute, and recycled materials for the environmentally conscious budding yogi.
This seems like a no-brainer, really right? This, though, is all you need to bring to your yoga class. Just bring you, and leave all the things you have to do and problems or issues you are facing at home. Yoga is about you and discovering more about yourself. Yoga literally translates to “unite” or to “be made whole”, and it is this discipline that will take you on an inner journey where you unite mind, body, and soul to be the truest essence of your own beautiful self that you can possibly be.
