before your first class
Drink lots of water for several days before your first class if you're not in the habit of drinking water.
Bring a large towel, a washcloth (sometimes two), a yoga mat, and a water bottle for class.
Dress as light as possible.
Men wear shorts or a bathing suit.
Women wear exercise tops and shorts or a swimsuit.
T-shirts are bulky; tank tops are better.
Come on an empty stomach.
Try to avoid food 1 to 3 hours before class.
Try and arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled class time.
