Clothing All you really need to begin practicing yoga is your body, your mind, and a bit of curiosity. It is also helpful to have a pair of leggings, or shorts, and a t-shirt that’s not too baggy. No special foot-gear is required because you will be barefoot.
If you practice desk yoga, this is meant to be a break in your day- no clothing change is needed.
Yoga props are optional. You’ll notice the yoga teachers occasionally using props in some of the videos. Props are awesome because they can help beginners access tricky poses. Advanced practitioners also use them to go “deeper” into poses.
A yoga mat is probably the most important prop to have, but if you don’t have one that’s okay. Just pick a place to practice that has a bit of padding (like a carpeted floor) and isn’t slippery.
A strap (use a towel or a belt if you don’t have one) can deepen a stretch and give you a “cheat” to reach your toes.
A bolster (you can substitute a rolled-up blanket or towel) provides support and comfort where you need it.
A block (or a thick book) can let you access poses without straining yourself, even if your hamstrings are tight.
