  2. Props: There are a couple of supplies that must be taken to the first yoga class. Although many studios provide their yoga mats it is always best to take your own yoga mat. Another thing is to wear comfortable work out an outfit that absorbs the sweat so that it is kept away from the body is important.
  3. What to drink and eat: It is highly advised to practice yoga on an empty stomach regardless of whether the yoga session is rigorous or relaxing. Nothing should be eaten at least two hours before the yoga class begins, all the more so if this is your first time going for the yoga class. In case you think that you cannot go through an entire yoga session without eating something then make sure that whatever you consume is light and small. Make sure that you take your water bottle along because you will feel the need to have water no matter which yoga style you have picked. At last, you must make sure that you have used the washroom before the class starts so that no unease is felt during the class.
  4. Familiarize yourself: Reach at least ten minutes ahead of time when it is your first class and familiarize yourself well with the instructor by letting the instructor know that you are a beginner. The yoga instructor will make sure that special attention is given to you till the time you actually understand the asanas well. Letting the yoga instructor is all the more important in case you have any injuries or in case you are pregnant because then the constructor will make the class easier and accessible for you as required.

Follow these steps and at last, just let go of all the stress and relax to enjoy the yoga class and the exploration of yoga. This way, you will be able to work well with your body, mind and soul.
