What to Wear?
Now some people wear layers on the top part of their body. Because we do a pose called Downward Facing Dog. It looks like we are an upside down letter, “V”. When that happens and if you do not have a snug fitting shirt, the shirt will ride up the back side and sometimes tummy part of your body.
I wear a tank top under my t-shirt, so if this happens, I know that I am not showing any skin.
Come a bit early to register, get your yoga props (a strap, a block, sometimes a blanket) and your spot.
