poses. Don’t let fear of the unknown keep you from discovering yoga, and radically improving your health. Use these six tips to help demystify your first yoga experience and get yourself to class!

1. No shoes required. Expect to practice yoga barefoot. Not only is yoga done without shoes, but if you’re attending class at a studio, it is generally asked that participants leave their shoes in a designated area, usually near the entrance. This not only helps keep things hygienic and clean, but is also a sign of respect. Performance-wise, bare feet grip to your yoga mat more easily than shoes, helping you to balance and move more skillfully from pose to pose.

2. You’ll need a mat. One of the great things about practicing yoga is that you don’t need an expensive arsenal of equipment. In general, yoga is done on a sticky mat, which can cost you as little as $15, although like most products on the market, there are more expensive versions available. If you care to have your mat made from organic recycled materials, or of a professional grade from a well-known manufacturer, expect to pay anywhere from $30 to $100+. But if you are just starting out, or if cost is your deciding factor, a $15 mat will do you just fine. Also, most yoga studios will either lend or rent yoga mats for a dollar or two.
