Gear Clothing: Yoga is usually practiced barefoot. Wear comfortable workout clothes to your yoga class.
Clothing such as leotard and tights, shorts and a T-shirt, or a sweat shirt and sweat pants.

Sticky Mat: Mats provide padding, friction, and enhanced safety when doing yoga positions. It is important for the feet to get good grounding so choose a good mat that supports this.
Foam Block: Foam blocks are used for beginners to extend their reach. Foam blocks should be dense enough to support your full weight.
Yoga Belt: Made of cotton or nylon, these wide belts help support and align your back and also to extend your grasp. They really aid in the stretching of your muscles especially the hamstrings
Yoga Blanket or Towel: These are used both for warmth and to provide padding for a variety of yoga postures.
