What to expect in your first Yoga class at Balanced Bodies
There is a good chance one of our teachers or another student has invited you to Yoga class. At the very least you have heard of yoga before. Perhaps you are inspired to try but equally nervous or unsure about what to do, what to say, what to wear etc. Well, I am going to clear all of that up for you now, starting with the number one question I am asked and ending with the answers to questions no one wants to ask. Check it.
What do I wear!?
Yep. That is number one. Comfort is the most important thing in Yoga and in life in general. So wear clothes that you can comfortably move around in. Gym clothes or even lazy Saturday clothes will do just fine. I would stay away from anything too baggy because in Yoga we do go upside down to some extent and our shorts shouldn’t become thongs and our shirts shouldn’t smack us in the face. Maybe a pair of compression shorts for the men and spandex top or undershirt for the ladies. Also we get to set our feet free! That means NO shoes & NO socks. Ok wear socks if you must but eventually you will love your feet so much you will never want to wear socks. (Socks also make your feet a little extra slippery too.)
