WHAT IF I'M NEW TO THE STUDIO?
We have some yoga mats to borrow, but it's encouraged you bring your own. Bring water (or purchase at the studio), wear comfortable yoga pants/shorts and t-shirt/tank. It is best that yoga is practiced without socks on but you can keep them nearby to put on at the end of class so you're cozy!
