It’s always recommended that you do Yoga in a safe and tranquil environment. It should be neither too cold nor too hot but a nice moderate temperature. The ideal environment is a place where you cannot be bothered or interrupted. A flat surface is also recommended. Outdoors can provide a nice spot when the area meets this criteria. It is also very important to respect a person’s space while meditating.
Music can be a great help for uplifting or relaxing the yogi, but it is not necessary. Candles and incense also add to the Yoga experience. They can enhance the space but, again, are not necessary to the practice of Yoga.
The best thing to wear to a Yoga class is loose, light-weight clothing that will not restrict movement. A Yoga mat is also a great item to have. Many Yoga studios rent them, but you can also buy your own and bring it to class. A towel and a bottle of water are also good to have on hand as well as clothes to change into afterward (depending of the type of Yoga).
Yoga is becoming more and more popular. With this popularity, there is an increase in Yoga equipment available for purchase. The use of props such as bands, blocks, chairs, and the like can also be a great asset to assist you in a Yoga posture.
