How To Prepare for Your First Yoga Class

If you are new at yoga and are getting ready to attend your first class, here are a few things that you need to know and to do in order to prepare for your first class.

What you should wear:
You want to make sure that whatever you are wearing is close fitting to your body and is comfortable at the same time. If you wear fitted clothing it will let the instructor observe how you are doing and then offer you any needed corrections. Depending upon the weather and temperature you might want to wear layers so that as you get warmer, you can take off the layers to fit the temperature of the studio.

What you should bring:
You definitely will need to bring a water bottle and a yoga mat if you have one. However, it is not necessary to invest in one right at the beginning because you may end up not continuing on with the yoga. The studio will most often have some you can borrow or rent.

What you should expect:
This is a tough one since all classes vary a lot. It all depends on the instructor and the kind of yoga you are taking. Usually though, the beginning class will start off slow with gentle stretches or some guided meditation and then will move on through some traditional poses and end in the “corpse pose,” where you lay on your back with your eyes closed and achieve total relaxation.

Yoga etiquette:
There is of course class etiquette and this will also vary from one studio to another and from instructor to another but here are a few that seem to be constant in all classes.

  • Take your shoes off before you walk into the studio.
  • Bring your water bottle with you and sip it as needed throughout class.
  • Make sure to get there early so you will have time to introduce yourself to the teacher and let them know it is your first class.
  • Make sure to use the restroom before class starts.
  • Don't wear perfume.
  • If you have to leave early for some reason, make sure that you do it before the class is ready to relax and do the corpse pose.
If you follow this short guideline, your first yoga class should go well and you should have a very enjoyable time and will look forward to attending future classes.

Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
writers? I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm
a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely
confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks a
