Beginner's guide: What to Wear to Yoga Class


Though there are certain things that you need to keep in mind for the first few classes. You can keep things simple by using items you already have. Here are a few tips: Socks: You might have seen people doing yoga barefoot. But you will occasionally see people with some kind of sock or shoe. It can be due to an injury or medical condition. In case you feel completely uncomfortable taking off your shoes in front of strangers, compromise by wearing yoga socks. These special socks have non-slip grips on the bottom that "grab" the mat and prevent your feet from slipping around.

Pants: Any comfortable exercise pants or shorts will do. Just make sure you avoid pants that don't stretch, like jeans. There are several types of yoga pants in the market. After a few classes, you may decide you need pants that are shorter, longer, looser, or higher waisted. Tops: Try to wear a t-shirt that's a little bit fitted works best for yoga. Big baggy t-shirts, or even loose-fitting workout shirts, aren't great as they'll slide down every time you bend over. Sleeveless tops are most comfortable since they allow freedom of movement in the arms and shoulders. Wear whatever kind of bra you prefer for exercising. Hot Yoga: There are some special considerations if you're going to do hot yoga or Bikram. Classes are held in a hot room. Therefore, cotton apparel and long tops or pants aren't ideal. They tend to trap sweat and hold your heat close to your body. It's best to wear shorts and moisture-wicking apparel to facilitate the practice.
