How do you know if you are ready to try a yoga class? What do you need? Well, actually you need very little. In fact, the less you bring, the better. What do I mean by that, you ask? You don’t need special clothes, anything loose and comfortable will do. You don’t need the problems your mind thinks need solving today. You don’t need that little voice in your head that says you are too this or too that. All you need is that little adventurer in you to stand up and say, I can spend 1 hour and focus on nothing else, but me. You can do this. You are ready.
