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. Yoga mats 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.
Once you have decided Yoga is for you the following set of equipment is suggested but not essential
- Yoga Mat
- Cotton Blanket
- Cotton Yoga Belt
- 4 Standard Blocks
- 4 Half Blocks
All the above can be found from various Yoga Suppliers, I recommend Yoga Matters.com (www.yogamatters.com) If you attend classes then I can provide discounts off the web site prices.
