WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Yoga requires little equipment – a blanket and cushions will do if you don’t have a mat or blocks. Keeping a water bottle to hand will help you to stay hydrated.
- A yoga mat – use a thick folded towel or blanket if you don’t have one
- Cushions or pillows - for extra support
- Loose, comfy clothes - layer up if the room is cold
