If you fancy trying something new that will help tone your body whist relaxing your mind then Yoga is just for you. Yoga has been practiced for hundreds of years and has shown to have many health benefits. More and more sports facilities and gyms have decided to offer yoga classes ranging from the beginners to the expert.
If you are trying out yoga for the first time then you may not want to splash out on expensive clothing right away until you know whether it is for you or not. For the first few sessions you can simply wear comfortable clothing such as leggings and a t-shirt. If you are going to wear jogging bottoms it is probably better to wear slightly tighter fitting ones or ones that are gathered at the leg as with many of the poses you will need to be able to use your feet without the risk of tripping over. Tight fitting running trousers are often the best to wear paired with a good sports bra and t-shirt to allow you to move with ease whilst still being comfortable and supportive.
You should try and invest in a yoga mat as soon as possible, although some places will allow you to hire one, but if you are going to be doing it long term then it is well worth the small investment.
