If you have a light meal or snack prior to class, it should be eaten at least two hours before your session begins. If you bring water with you; please leave water bottles in the changing area during class.

Wear comfortable clothing - Shorts, cropped pants, yoga pants or footless tights are good choices; paired with a t-shirt, tank top or workout top. Knees should be visible so the teacher can check alignment of the legs. Be comfortable - yoga involves movement! Whatever kind of clothing you wear to class should move with you.
