What to wear?
Comfort is the key word.  Wear clothing that is non-restrictive that allows you to move freely.  Generally, any exercise clothing is good.  Don't wear items that will restrict your movement such as tight jeans, belts, etc.  Yoga is practiced in bare feet.
What to bring?
Having your own yoga mat and yoga blanket is best, so that you don't have to share with other people especially  during cold and flu season.  However, yoga mats, yoga blankets and other props such as blocks, straps are provided at class.
Can I eat before class?
It is best not to eat a full meal 2 hours before class or a light snack 1 hour before class.  Yoga does not feel good on a full stomach!
When should I arrive for class?
Try to arrive at class about 5 minutes before it is due to start.  This will give you time to sign in and settle down.  Since arriving late can be quite distracting to your fellow students, please enter as quietly as possible.
Yoga Class Etiquette:
Be considerate of your fellow students, remember to turn off your cell phone.  Do not wear heavy fragrances, as others may be sensitive or allergic to them.
