Wondering what to bring to a yoga class?

No fancy equipment required!  You, your breath, and a mat is all you need.

That said, some tools can help enhance your practice. I recommend having your own mat (it’ll serve you hygienically) and if you are practicing regularly, you may want to invest in a mat you really love, that is made to last.  I love The Mat (by Lululemon).  It’s made for a hot, sweaty style of yoga.  Manduka and Jade make awesome mats as well.

A bottle of water and a towel are a great idea too.  Most studios will have straps and foam blocks you can use during class.

Where can you practice yoga?

Check to see if your gym, school, or workplace offers yoga.  Philadelphia has many wonderful studios, which can provide real feeling of community where you practice.

There are many styles of the physical practice of yoga–some you may find more drawn to than others.  Try something new, and see how it goes!  Ask about student pricing and new client specials.  Here are links to some of the amazing studios in Philadelphia:
