Advice on Yoga practice

WHAT TO WEAR

Loose clothing suitable for exercise i.e Tee shirts, shorts, leggings etc

WHAT WILL I NEED

We practice in bare feet so we use a yoga mat or exercise mat. Yogamats are preferable as they are non slip. Different types are available. Please ask the teacher for advice before buying. I can offer a discount from a yoga supplier.

If you are a new attendee I have some spare mats available before you decide to buy.

Please bring a blanket for support during various poses and for relaxation.

Blocks and a yoga belt. I have a number of spares available. Regular attendees eventually purchase their own for home practice.
